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.
