If you’re a regular here, you’re probably familiar with El Solitario MC. The controversial customs from this Spanish workshop have driven some readers to unprecedented heights of apoplexy—and others to delight.
‘Impostor’ is arguably their most infamous release—a BMW R nineT encased in a skeletal structure. Comments ranged from “It embodies everything wrong with the custom bike scene,” to “Ego stroking for wealthy hipsters.”
But El Solitario have many fans too, and one is motorcycle historian Paul d’Orléans: “In this era of universal tattoos, identical work-wear outfits, and cookie-cutter customs, David Borras and the El Solitario crew are the real deal; true individuals. Nobody is building anything like this, period, and they really don’t care what you think.”
