Rarely does a motorcycle render me completely speechless. That moment happened back in 2014 when I first saw Ram Ram of White Collar Bikes 2012 Thruxton build. Hailing from Indonesia, Ram Ram has become one of the worlds premiere builders in my mind. His builds are nothing short of spectacular and this Thruxton was the beginning of it all. From the moment the photos first hit the internet, the bike went viral and became an industry sensation.
After going over the builds and starring endlessly at this bike, there is not much stock left on it. Ram Ram wanting to depart from from the OEM frame, started with some solid chunks of aluminum. The frame, being cnc machined from solid aluminum creates a beautiful focal point up front that captures the viewer’s eyes. He wanted to continue this custom machined look through out the bike. As a result, the rear shock mount was machined from solid aluminum and awesome single sided swing-arm constructed out of all aluminum. The only OEM part on the swing-arm is a Ducati 1098 eccentric hub that holds the custom one off wheels.
With all the work in the frame and swing-arm, ram Ram just went all out on the rest of the bike. From the Ohlins front forks to the Brembo Monobloc calipers, their is not a part on this bike that is not top quality. Once again, he with with fully custom cnc machined triple clamps to the hold the Ohlins forks. To continued this machined look, a set of custom clip ons, billet aluminum headlight and brake reservoirs were made. The more and more you star a the front of this bike, the more you see these little one off part.
Additionally, if you notice in the pictures that there are different color tanks and tails, that exactly what you see. He basically created 2 bikes in one. The tank and tail sections have been to create so that at a moments notice the rider can interchange them. This is due to a quick release system designed for just this reason. I just can’t say enough about this machine and even years later I find my self just starring at it beauty.
