DEATH MACHINES OF LONDON

Bespoke builders Death Machines of London has succeeded in the total reconstruction of an original '81 Moto Guzzi Le Mans, engine and gearbox. In equal parts inspiration and re-imagination from the oldest European builder left on the track, Death Machines ups the ante with a 950cc engine and aviation-driven components, including warning lights and main switch from a 1940 Merlin Spitfire fighter. Finished in Italian Red gloss and Old English white paintwork, we dare say their first build is a work of art, and look forward to seeing what comes next.
