Ace 904S Thruxton Special

One of my absolute favourite assignments was being commissioned to photograph imagery for the Ace 904S Thruxton Special. This magnificent piece of work was a limited-edition collaboration (with only 15 being produced) between Tony Scott of T3 Racing and Mark Wilsmore of the Ace Cafe.

I have somewhat of a love for these machines, having ‘test driven’ a couple myself. But this one was truly unique and special. An engineering masterpiece, with only the finest components utilised in its production. The Ace 904S is based on the Triumph Thruxton and is branded with Ace Cafe London’s Stonebridge Motor Company.

Having seen some of my previously photographed work of an urban artist, the team involved in the marketing of the bike contacted me for the assignment. Their vision was for me to photograph the bike as if I were capturing press images for an artist. We met at the Ace Café and from there, navigated our way around the entire location in search for the best spots for the perfect images to be captured.

Here are some of my favourite close-up photographs of the detail of the bike.
