    The Irony in a Name

    The name Medusa conjures images of a beast so hideous that merely looking at it turned men to stone. How ironic that her namesake custom shop birthed a café racer of such incredible beauty.

    Beginning with a 2008 Triumph Thruxton, Theo and his Kansas City-based crew chopped the back half of the frame and created their own monoshock swing arm. The factory seat and cowl also were tossed in favor of a handcrafted unit that features a cowl and copper seat pan, also hammered by hand. A swath of racer-minimal leather was tooled by Medusa's team to cover the seat.

    Details abound on this custom build. The stock tachometer is set in a hand fabricated case that began life as a thermos lid. The gauge's face shines with a polished copper face insert with precision drilled holes that reveal the stock digits. The rear sets are also engraved and feature the same distressed copper finish as the headlight bucket and D&D exhaust. And the electronics are all hidden in the tail section, another piece crafted by Medusa's team.

    We're looking forward to the next beauty this Kansas City shop births. In the meantime, check 'em out online.
