El Solitario in Spain is making punk spirited custom motorcycles and riding gear for today’s road life. They built “La Sal del Diablo” with the Bonneville salt flats in mind. It was modified to meet stringent safety regulations: new Avon Distanzia tires good for 120 mph, new electrics, and an emergency cut-off loop attached to the rider. Other mods include short bars, certified fuel lines and a vintage drag-style nose cone.
The donor bike was a matching numbers T120R that underwent a full ground up engine rebuild. Performance upgrades come in the form of a QPD open belt drive, a twin Amal mono block, Boyer ignition, custom exhaust pipes and a fresh set of electrics. A hardtail frame holds the 19 inch Borrani rim at the rear. It’s 21 inch Borrani brother sits in the front end beneath a set of Triumph TT triple trees and Webco short inverted bars. The peanut tank and rear fender are both Wassell units and that front fairing is a one off custom. Paintwork by Nicolai Sclater of Ornamental Conifer.
