Hell Brutalos. A Shovelhead On Steroids.

Another example of a Harley Shovelhead getting a new life dressed in sport attire and running legally on Steroids. I found it north of the border, precisely in Quebec, where builder Philip Roquebrune first task was to give the old 1981 engine a new look with split rocker boxes and some muscles by boosting its size from 80 to 88 cubic inch, fitting it with a Rivera intake, an S&S E carburetor, a dual Morris Magneto and a reversed starter housing.

Then engine and transmission (both raised) were cradled in a custom single loop frame with 26-degree rake attached to a flat tube swingarm moving on a Penske mono shock, with all chassis treated in industrial machine gray powdercoating. Like many sport bikes, Hell Brutalos rolls on a pair of 17″ Excel spoke wheels dressed with Pirelli tires (120 front, 160 rear) with reliable braking provided by racing specialist Beringer. Open belt system is from BDL and sporty exhaust system comes front Supertrapp. Shovel Hell… Roque Chop Design.

    Great engineering, but definitely not for the road, kinda ugly, but it’s probably a monster on dirt (weight problems?)

    I wonder how people can ride on such skinny motorcycles. All your body will be aching as hell after an hour in such an inconvenient position. It only may be used for some short competitions or drug, but not for usual riding. IMHO

    Didn’t you folks learn anything from the comments last time I didn’t like every bit of a bike? Just nod and ooh & ah and say it’s wonderful or you’re a hater. Even if the next bike Cyril features is a Paul Jr. Designs painted in latex with a roller, just say ya love it 😉

    Is the bottle hooked to the front of the frame an auxiliary gas can or a nitrous bottle? I want a metal auxiliary gas can that hooks the the frame like that, just cant seem to find one.

    Zyon, try a marine store. Found one and use it as reserve.
    By the way, do all bikes need to be used for cross country? Bar Hopper?

    I kind of like it myself, I think if the engine were dropped a little by mounting the engine to the down tube and leaving the bottom open or maybe make the frame so the engine would drop between the frame rails. Hell I wouldn’t mind it sitting in my garage just as it is. The mono shock design looks like there is plenty of travel and if adjusted right should give a good ride (seat might be a little uncomfortable though but they all take getting used to).

    Nice bike, i don´t wonderstand people that say they love bikes, and after they bashing a style or if is classic, futuristic or race or litlle cubic inch etc.etc
    Ofcourse we have diferent tastes like colors, but our preference is not necessery better than others.
    Choppers and radical bikes makes me crazy, but if i see a little 50cc i cant´be indifrent.

    THERE’S ANOTHER BIKE THAT IS A COPY OF WHAT SOMEONE ELSE MADE OR DESIGNED. HE TOOK A MOTOR AND MADE IT A FREAK AND NESTLED THE BIKE INTO A CONFEDERATE FRAME. 98′ – 02′ STYLE FRAME. NOW IS THIS GUY TO BE FEATURED IN A “CYRILL” BLOG, EVEN THOUGH HIS BIKE IS A PART OF OTHER BUILDERS IDEA’S. ……….MY ANSWER IS HELL YES, CAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE HE IS ON THE “TEAM”! …..AND HIS CHICK IS SLICK, ANYWAY.

    translation = whats the difference between a Canoe and a Canadian , the Canoe tips . ha ha ha !!!!

    RUB. The reason why many foreigners, including Canadians, don’t tip while in the US for the 1st time is because they don’t know. In most foreign countries, tips of 15% to 20% are automatically added to their bills! You are an ignorant. Travel a little bit more outside your village.
