El Solitario ONE: THE HANGOVER

Welcome everybody to the biggest and most universal hangover. Ladies & gents, it is January 2, 2014. El Solitario wishes you a happy new year and we wanted to start by sharing these low key photographs shot in our garage during the making of our latest movie project: ONE. What was going to be a rather conventional short film about our latest bike, due to the lack of proper lightning or camera equipment, (and why not admit it, fueled by two bottles of the best galician Coffee Liquor), ended up in a crazy love affair between an unidentifiable light and our secret machine, Petardo.

EL SOLITARIO PETARDO

Holy noise?!#$%& Enjoy the sounds of the last test onboard our dear Petardo before finally leaving to Corsican lands where it will join its new family. Petardo, firecracker in Spanish, is El Solitario’s most audacious special so far and our most aggressive bid. An explosive Hot Rod of excessive proportions.

Stay tuned on this corner of the blogosphere for more news on our race to completion

PETARDO: 8 DAYS FOR “D” DAY

Only eight days and a dirt track weekend in the UK in the middle… This thing is going to be badass. Such a pleasure working with Tony from TT Motorbikes. You rule Sir!

LESS THAN 4 WEEKS FOR WHEELS & WAVES

Time is running out and our dear Petardo is still in “diapers mode”. All the team is working hard to have it ready for the Biarritz parties but we know this will be hard. The cockpit is becoming a pain in the neck but thankfully enough, the seat shape was ready, and finally gone to the leather guy. All the necessary bits are finally here but we are still facing a couple of unwanted compromises that seek to work around them to… BOOM!@#$ disappear in a cloud of smoke!

EL SOLITARIO PETARDO: 8 WEEKS & COUNTING

El Solitario squirrels are working night & day to have the roaring Petardo ready for the upcoming Wheels&Waves. Will they make it? Don’t know yet, but hell they are trying! Design phase is completed, and now all we need, is to make it happen. A new power plant, in the form of a big valves 900S motor, (Thanks to the people from Radical Ducati!), its already in place making our mind-blowing firecracker even more explosive. Today you can see some of the lighting options which look rather wild, but the heavy load is still to come… So stay tuned on this corner of the blogosphere for more news on our race to final ignition!@#$
