The “Up Yours Copper” is the newest model from British manufacturers, Death Machines London (DMOL). This new motorbike is a homage to the late journalist and author Hunter S. Thompson. The body is engraved with the author’s most famous quote: “faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death.”
Similar to Frankenstein’s monster, the “Up Yours Copper” is built from parts of DMOLs previous models. It began as a resurrected version of the company’s 2007 Triumph Thruxton 900i with pieces from a 1940 Supekrmarine Spitfire Mk1. The final paintwork is made primarily of a black satin finish unifying the various elements.
