2013 Triumph Jerolamo by Mr. Martini
Presented at the prestigious Verona Bike Expo in 2013 as part of a collection of 5 special motorcycles by Mr.Martini, the Jerolamo was the star of that year's show. Praised as one of the truest examples of the minimalism that sets contemporary Café Racers apart from any other motorcycle on the road, the Jerolamo won immediately first prize in the Racer & Scrambler class. Of the 5 specials presented that year which were the KBM, Rocket Phanom, British Racing Dream and Flash Back, the Jerolamo was the one that became a cult bike for many Cafè Racer enthusiasts.
The mix of ingredients that made the Jerolamo great is simple: British power mixed with Italian ingenuity. In the world of motorcyclists, the name Triumph has always been synonimous with horsepower and excitement while Ducati has always been associated with lightness and agility. Blend the two together and you obtain this true Cafè Racer by Mr.Martini.
Starting from a 2000 carburated Triumph Legend TT, Mr.Martini stripped all the unnecessary bits, following the long-standing tradition of: if you do not need it, throw it away! Once the bike was reduced to a bare chassis and engine, a new set of upside-down Showa forks, 320mm Brembo Serie Oro brakes and 17'' wheels from a Ducati were installed. Completing the build a bespoke 3-in-1 exhaust system By Zard was used to maximize performances: inspired by the legendary Norton Manx, it gave the Jerolamo its signature sound and unique look.
In an effort to make the bike look and feel aggressive, the original swingarm was replaced with the one from a 1995 T309 Speed Triple while a new suspension was used at the rear to have a more dynamic position while riding.
Offered for the first time for sale since 2013, the Jerolamo is currently the only motorbike available of the 5 which made history at the 2013 Verona Bike Expo. A once-in-a-lifetime chance to own a unique motorcycle.
