LA Nightlight’s Thomas Taylor (2nd right) runs to head a goal as Philadelphia Killawatts’ team members chase him with stun guns during an Ultimate Tak Ball (UTB) game in Bangkok on March 2, 2012.
One of the more original builders working today is David Borras, a Spanish vintage motorcycle racer who runs El Solitario (“the loner”) MC. He’s got an idiosyncratic style, and his disregard for contemporary fashions has won him a lot of attention. This is Borras’ latest bike: it’s unlikely to be as controversial as his Triumph T120, but it’s just as eye-catching. Called ‘The Gonzo’, it’s a heavily customized 1976 R45 that Borras describes as “terribly underpowered, but indestructible”.
