There doesn’t seem to be a street address anywhere on the LC Fabrications website. We’re just told that the company “was born in the corner of a machine shop in the hills of Virginia, where the history and traditions of the past still thrive.”
The man behind LC is Jeremy Cupp, and he’s an old-school craftsman—when he’s not building award-winning ‘antique’ customs, he’s making parts for Sportsters and modern Triumphs. TT Deluxe is a typical LC project: it started life as a smoke-damaged ’06 Bonneville, and ended up as vintage café racer. Cupp designed and built the frame and removable cradle, along with the rear brake drum, and the tank is graced by copper leaf versions of the 1910-1914 Triumph logo.
The result is authentic and original at the same time—a world apart from the mail-order catalog school of bike building. [Via Blood Falcons.]
