Ryan Reynolds’ Triumph Thruxton by Kott Motorcycles is A-List Awesomeness [w/ Video]
By all outward appearances, it’s mighty good to be Ryan Reynolds. The Canadian is a hugely successful actor currently breaking box office records with Deadpool, has a beautiful young family in the form of wife Blake Lively and their little girl and, in case that wasn’t enough jealousy fuel for you, now has a sweet custom café racer based on a Triumph Thruxton. Reynolds, who it turns out has been a massive motorcycle buff since boyhood, tasked Dustin Kott – the principal of Kott Motorcycles based on Tinseltown’s northern extremities in Santa Clarita, California – with morphing this modern British bike into a proper performance machine.
To accomplish that, Kott removed all the superfluous fluff, replacing the stock airbox with twin velocity stacks, the stock handlebars with clip-ons, and the stock tank and seat with custom-fabricated units. We happen to think this bike couldn’t look much cooler but, based on Reynolds’ self-described tendency for going with the flow and figuring things out as he goes along, it wouldn’t surprise us to see this bike back in the Kott Motorcycles shop for some revisions at some point in the future.
