Death Machines of London Cooks up a Stealthy Hand-Beaten Le Mans Mk II
Nicknamed the “Airforce.”
Bike builders, Death Machines of London has just unveiled its latest motorcycle that pays homage to Moto Guzzi’s co-founder, Giovanni Ravelli aka “The Italian Devil.” Coinciding with Ravelli’s background as a pilot and aircraft mechanic, the early ’80s Moto Guzzi LE Mans MK II is covered in hand-hammered aluminium and shaped to significantly reduce drag.
Taking approximately 112 days to complete, no detailed was spared as the entire bike, minus the fork-set and frame, was completely rebuilt and customized. Other updates include a Hagon rear suspension, 300mm rotors with Brembo calipers, and modified 36mm pumper Dell’Orto carburettors.
In other high-speed news, BWM set a new record with its M5 for longest drift – totalling 8 hours and covering 232.5 miles.
