Death Machines of London is a small workshop that is known for their minimal approach to building custom bikes. They took this no-nonsense approach with their first custom build\u2014the Moto Guzzi Airtail. This custom bike performs well and looks impeccable to boot.\r\n\r\nThe skilled engineers and designers at Death Machines started with a 1981 Le Mans Mark 2 and completely disassembled it, essentially stripping it to the bare bones. All of the original parts were vapour blasted. They carefully restored the original instrumentation back to its original glory.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSeveral parts, including the main switch and aviation warning lights, were taken from a 1940 Merlin Spitfire fighter, giving the Moto Guzzi Airtail a unique aviation-inspired aesthetic. The most characteristic feature of this custom bike is its \u201cAirtail\u201d or the skeleton tail section. This section was taken from a Land Rover Defender and adorned with just a single rear light. The Airtail fits with the minimalistic design, helping to hide all of the electrical components from view.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Airtail features a 950cc engine equipped with completely new valves, a balanced crankshaft and gas-flowed cylinder heads. Other customizations include accelerator pumps, 40mm Dell\u2019Orto carbs, a new R.A.M. clutch and a custom exhaust system designed in-house.\r\n\r\nThe bike is finished off with a polished red frame with a satin white trim. Exposed metal, located on the tank, is a great finishing touch. The Airtail is stamped with a custom brass plaque on the back of the seat to distinguish it from other motorcycles.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
