Written by Martin Hodgson

The idea of a European/American hybrid is not a new one in the automotive world, with vehicles like the Shelby Cobra using parts from each side of the Atlantic. A lightweight, well-balanced chassis with some Yank V-Power muscle to get things moving always seemed like the perfect combination. Inspired by the concept the French boutique manufacturer Avinton launched their Collector GT, a tribute to the Cobra in motorcycle form. Despite the quality of the product and the high-profile endorsement of NBA Superstar Tony Parker, things never really took off. So one lucky owner parked his 2014 model up until he could find a builder to truly complete the dream. Enter French motorcycle maestro Olivier Ortolani who took delivery of the big-ticket bike and sent home the perfect Ortolani Customs Avinton Cafe Racer.

Olivier is no stranger to working on exotic machines or the Pipeburn faithful; having previously finished fourth in the 2017 Bike of the Year Awards with his incredible all alloy Ducati 1199 S Panigale. So being asked to completely modify a motorcycle worth more than $65,000 was not something he loses sleep over like most mere mortals. The client had purchased one of the very first Avintons off the production line, but wanting a few changes to be made had left the bike sitting for nearly five years before finally, in Olivier, finding someone he could trust with his prized possession.

“The brief for this project was to lighten the rear of the motorcycle, which has a petrol tank, so a heavy part, visually. So I put myself in the visuals to reposition a tank of fuel on the front while keeping the particularity of the Avinton, namely the position of the air filter,” explains Olivier. That air filter is a bug catcher style scoop that fills the engine via the airbox but taking up so much room means in stock trim the Avinton carries its fuel below the seat. To fix the first of these problems a new tank was fabricated by hand from large sheets of hand-rolled aluminium. Maintaining much of the aesthetic of the original and yet removing the bulk from the rear.

Now holding fuel, the tank sports a more sculpted look than the original with broader shoulders giving this Frenchman a muscular stance. The entire factory tail-piece has also been replaced with more brilliant aluminium sheet metal, each line meticulously laid down and hand formed until Olivier had the exact shape he was looking for. The dramatic scallops in the fuel tank have been mirrored on a smaller scale at the rear, a time-consuming process. Wanting to create contrast even on the seat, it has been stitched from two distinct pieces of material, Alcantara and gloss leather by NMB Design for a supercar style appearance.

“There is even the brilliant touch of mounting a push button starter in the bug catcher for that full on Hot Rod experience.”

But having removed so much of the bodywork from the factory machine it only made sense that something would be left exposed. Hanging out in the breeze was the wiring loom and lithium battery. But already having considered this possibility Olivier extended the lower half of the tail section, some of which neatly wraps around the frame and shock mount. Every last bit of this spare space is now used to hide all that wiring as well as a Motogadget m-Unit and LED taillight assembly. There is even the brilliant touch of mounting a push button starter in the bug catcher for that full on Hot Rod experience.

All of this new work is mounted to the factory tubular frame that suspends the engine from the backbone and utilises the hollow tube in a sealed off section to act as the oil tank. Slung beneath it all is the thumping S&S V-Twin engine that at 1647cc sure means business. The quad cam motor and a lightweight bottom end with 10.3:1 compression will give a rev friendly 120hp and a tractor like 168nm of torque at just 3000rpm. But at Ortolani Customs that still not considered quite enough despite a weight of just 175kg.

To extract some extra cafe racer ponies Olivier had a perfect idea, “For the exhaust I wanted to make a system that doesn’t hide the architecture of the engine with a touch of MotoGP.” So he bent, cut and TIG welded a lightweight stainless system and finished it off with two race like end cans. In stock trim, big dollar Beringer brakes get the job done, but having chosen a more race inspired look and feel there was only one brand to turn to, Brembo! It’s all the latest technology gear with mono-block calipers clamping massive dinner plate sized floating and drilled discs.

For most people a bike that comes standard with Ohlins suspension would be more than enough to keep them happy. But not Olivier and his client, the front forks have full kit internals from Italian suspension house Mupo, who also supplied a new mono-shock for the rear to better suit the new weight characteristics of the customised Avinton. Having removed so much mass from an already light and powerful motorcycle, further gains in performance can be had by reducing unsprung weight and no expense was spared when sourcing a set of Marchesini wheels all wrapped up in the stickiest liquorice strips, Diablo SuperCorsa slicks.

Dressing the cafe racer up, Olivier selected a predominately black colour scheme with highlights in the factory red from Avinton. But always one for neat touches he hand fabricated both fluid reservoirs, adjourned the bike with just the right number of workshop logos and even painted a French flag on the chain. A Motogadget dash adds a little bit of glitz to the cockpit and to bring things into 2018 the stock headlight has been replaced for a brand new item from a Ducati Scrambler. It’s remarkable to think that the basis for this project was already an incredible machine, but the motorcycle that leaves the Ortolani Customs workshop was more than worth the wait for the patient owner. There is simply nothing else on the road like it; ferocious American horsepower, the finest of French engineering and a host of Italian parts from the MotoGP paddock. It has no name, but quite simply, it’s perfect and priceless!

Written by Martin Hodgson

Long before anyone had dreamed up Netflix, two seminal documentaries from legendary filmmaker Bruce Brown were being passed down like a rite of passage through the generations. One was the original surf classic The Endless Summer and for the motorcycle mad it was, On Any Sunday. For photographer Anthony Scott the movie that injected fuel into our veins had him as a child tearing across the open fields of Alabama racing his brother on their BMX bikes. Decades later the man behind Enginethusiast and the newly formed The Revival House in Oregon decided it was time to make those childhood memories in adult scale. Built to race the desert sands it’s his Engine #23, a 1978 Husqvarna 250WR with that Steven McQueen smile.

Always looking for new ways to do things around anything and everything automotive, Anthony created The Revival House with a group of friends. “A few people have asked me what The Revival House is, and to be honest we will let everyone know when we know what it is. At this point, just consider us your friends in Portland, Oregon that you may run into with a camera and a passion for all things engine,” beams the Enginethusiast himself. And in the ’78 Husqvarna he has himself an engine that was still dominating Enduro racing among the emergence of the Japanese 2-strokes and the converted road going British twins, the Husky had the perfect mix of power, lightweight and reliability.

Its little surprise then that superstar Steve McQueen rode a 250 Husqvarna in that incredible beach scene from the documentary that inspired it all. Now at an age when he could swap the BMX for the real thing, Anthony was on the hunt for just such a bike. But it wasn’t just to fulfil a childhood dream, as The Revival House had an event planned down at Joshua Tree, California he explains. “The Desert Race was our first introduction of the Revival, focused on the glory days of a bygone era. We wanted to create an event that everyone could come out to and have a good time.” So the race would prove the first outing for Engine #23, but finding a donor bike isn’t so easy.

Steve McQueen’s own Husky that he used to tackle the Mojave Desert was recently sold for $100k and while other examples aren’t so pricey, they don’t come cheap. “I purchased the bike from Aaron Cope, who works as one of the bike builders for Icon 1000. Originally when he told me about the motorcycle it was way beyond my budget, but almost 5 months later we worked out a deal and I was able to bring the old Husky home.” smiles Anthony. Now he could set about turning the bike into the perfect machine for racing in the California desert just like McQueen had done nearly 50 years earlier.

So much cool

“Low and behold we found that the cases had holes the size of quarters on one side that had been JB welded.”

Wanting to keep the build process relatively straight forward and not lose the bikes classic charm it was the engine that would receive the bulk of the attention. “ I reached out to Arlan Lehman at LED Performance, pulled the motor out of the frame, and we promptly proceeded to tear it apart. As I was washing out some parts and cases in solvent water, Arlan yelled for to me to come over. Low and behold we found that the cases had holes the size of quarters on one side that had been JB welded.” So under the watchful eye of Arlan, Anthony got to work piecing back together and rebuilding the 239cc air-cooled two-stroke engine.

The rest of the build took place in the one spot any true biker will use when they’ve run out of space, “in my living room,” laughs Anthony. The frame was taken out for sandblasting to clean off decades of muck and all the nuts and bolts were given the vapour blast treatment. The Husqvarna was given new steering head bearings for a taste of the modern age while a new swingarm is bolted to the refurbished frame. Preparing it to handle whatever the desert could throw its way Anthony rebuilt the front forks and fitted up the short versions of the factory shocks.

But there is always room to make a good bike look great and Anthony knew just the person to get it done with the time till the race closing in fast! Despite the pressure, Lorin Holmes at PDX Paint Works knocked it out of the park with a custom job that takes nothing away from the classic ride. The big front fender and front half of the tank have been coated in a vintage dark green that is separated by a white graphic before the deep red flows rearward. Gold pin-striping breaks it all up with a gold gas cap and perfect Husqvarna logo completing the look.

The period crosser bars with white grips provide the perfect pull back and with extra rise allow Anthony’s tall frame to fit the little two fiddy like a glove. Racing flat-out through the desert you need your eyes glued to whats in front of you and a quick action throttle and levers mean there are no unnecessary distractions on the bars. New wheels provide the perfect combination of lightweight and strength and have been wrapped up in just the right rubber to dig into the sand and send it to the sky. With the finishing touch coming from Ginger McCabe at New Church Moto who always does a killer seat.

Living the dream

But there was one final hurdle to overcome, working long hours, organising the race and trying to complete Engine #23 something had gone wrong. “After the motor rebuild was completed, I couldn’t get the transmission to shift even though it did on the bench no problem. This all happened with just one week to go before the event. Arlan knew I couldn’t take off any more time from work, so in turn he did us a huge solid by rebuilding the motor again and correcting the transmission issue. He saved the day!” recalls a very relieved Anthony and the result of their combined efforts are for all to see. So whether it’s at The Desert Race or somewhere in Oregon, on any Sunday you’ll find Anthony blasting two-stroke Husky smoke having made those childhood memories a real life dream!

Yee-haw!

Written by Andrew Jones

What is it about ex-police vehicles? As with our four-wheeled brethren, the thought of nabbing something that used to enforce the law seems to really float our boats. Hell, muscle cars seem to increase in value if you can prove they were used by the boys in blue. But there’s a real perverse pleasure at play when you take an ex-police bike a turn it into a drag racer. And that thrill is turned up to 11 when you add NOS and a supercharger. So we were overjoyed when Dani from Switzerland’s VTR Customs did just that three years ago; then we find out he’s gone and made the thing bigger, better and badder than ever. Here’s his ‘Polizia 1.9’ BMW R80RT racer.

The first draft of the BMW (aka ‘Polizia Uno’) was developed from a cache of police bikes Dani has stashed away for a rainy day. Purchased from the Swiss police force, this particular example is a ’88 model that had about 100,000 kilometres on the clock when acquired. It went on to star in many a European sprint race, with its best result a 3rd placing at Glemseck in 2016. But as the competition upped their game, it came time for this bike to do the same. Or as Dani put it, “Everyone became more crazy after too much partying and beer; they started to improve their racers to the next level.”

And so did Dani. “Our key issue after getting the supercharged and NOS’d engine sorted was traction. We were losing meters in every race because this freaking police bike went up on to its rear wheel as soon as the power was applied. So you had to roll off the throttle in order to not backflip the thing right away.” His answer to the fliptastic motorrad was tried and true one. A longer swingarm, a lower front fork, a flatter steering angle and a more forward seating position was the target. Just like the fast boys.

Note display case in tank

Those readers with decent numerical skills will notice a small inconsistency with Dani’s version numbers. That’s right, the bike didn’t quite make it to V2.0. Maybe Dani ran out of fingers to count on? “The simple answer is that we’re not quote done with the mods,” explains Dani. “We’d like to go as low as possible with the seating, which would mean starting from scratch with all the supercharger plumbing and mounting; we just didn’t have enough time or money for that.” But V1.9 still had its fair share of mods, too. Most notably, the swingarm was lengthened by 15cm, the forks were chopped by 8, and the steering angle was pushed forward by ‘several’ degrees.

“We love the aesthetics and we are Swiss, goddamn it, so we love the details too!” laughs Dani. So the Beemer’s slimmer and lower line meant a new, handmade gas tank to better suit the look. Similarly, a lower and more aggressive front fairing was fabbed up, along with a new tail, a shorter seat, lower than low bars, a new seat and a Magura HC3 race brake pump.

“We love the aesthetics and we are Swiss, goddamn it, so we love the details too!”

“The community complained after my good luck talismans – the pacifier from my son and the styptic blood stopper from my doctor – were removed. But they have simply been swapped to right side of the racer’s gas tank into their own showcase with glass and, yes, a light to show them off properly.”

The resemblance to VTR’s Spitfire build is duly noted

In December, Dani had to go to the hospital to have a steel plate removed from his collarbone. So, as you do, he posted a funny picture of himself lying in the bed showing off the original plate the doctors removed. And when a colleague commented, “Hey. That looks like a brake lever!” Well, you can probably guess the rest of the story. Look closely at image number five above.

“Our first tests have been very promising, but looking at the social media channels from my Sultans friends, I fear we are again being outpaced by the opposition. They seem to have built even crazier monsters. Holy sh*t!” We’d like say at this point that there’s not many more options after you’ve got both NOS and a blower on your bike, but we fear that would only encourage Dani to try and prove us wrong.

It’s easy to tell that Dani enjoys a good story. And while he probably thought he was done, we geeked out and made sure he didn’t leave us hanging, tech-wise. “The BMW’s fuel injection is a custom set-up by VTR Customs and Mectronic which has various race and show mappings, all of which are available directly by switches on the dash. The supercharger is a Rotrex unit and the happy gas is from Wizard of NOS.” They’ve just won the Pipeburn award for coolest company name of the month. There’s also a quick shifter and launch control should Dani feel so inclined. From the factory, the bike came with 48hp. He says that he’s more than tripled that figure. Break a leg in the 2018 races, Dani. Just don’t break another collarbone.
