While we wait for Triumph to launch a 400cc cafe racer style bike, here’s a Speed 400 modified into a cafe racer

Quick Highlights

  • Triumph Speed 400-based cafe racer by Zeus Custom

  • Clip-on handlebars for an aggressive seating position

  • The upholstered leather seat and brushed metal finish tank give it an even more retro look

Cafe racers have that elegance and irresistible charm that is very difficult to look away from, and while we await the arrival of a 400cc Triumph Thruxton, here’s something to snazz up your day. Zeus Custom, from Bangkok, has taken what the Speed 400 has to offer and transformed it into a hot cafe racer. They say this custom bike is an example of what the custom house can bring out of the bike with bespoke modifications to showcase their craft.

At first glance, most of us might utter a pleasurable ‘UFF’ with the brushed metal finish and premium-looking leather accents. Charming, aren’t they? At the front, the bike has clip-on handlebars mounted on the front fork. Even the bar-end mirrors and LED turn indicators are mounted to the handlebar, giving the bike a clean and subtle look. 

Moving to the seat, it is redesigned and upholstered in leather. It features a ribbed pattern, adorned with the ‘Zeus Custom Bangkok’ branding that magnifies the attention to detail on the bike. It also has a custom exhaust that looks stylish and will make heads turn when revved.
