Our second café racer – The BT02, based on a Triumph Thruxton R.
The BT02 Thruxman combines the names of two iconic motorbikes: the Triumph Thruxton R, which served as the basis for this transformation, and the legendary Norton Manx, the inspiration for its unique design.

Few motorbikes evoke as much nostalgia as the iconic Norton Manx.

The idea behind the creation of this cafe racer was to create a contemporary custom motorbike, combining the timeless elegance of the Manx with the modern performance of the Thruxton R. According to Sacha Lakic, “The Norton Manx is the epitome of cafe racer design: light, elegant, slim, simple, pure and recognisable, with a unique sound. My favourite version: the 1959 model”.

Blacktrack’s Manx design combines classic and modern elements, with an aluminium tank, leather straps made by partner Ludo Gaag and a black leather saddle with subtle red edging. The cafe racer exhaust, side guards, inserts and clip-on handlebars complete the unique look.
