“Black Moon” by Bombay Street Garage: the Italian Dark Lady

Spirito Café Racer, richiami spudoratamente Brat e dettagli, ben calibrati, che nulla hanno da invidiare alla più moderna moto di serie: un eccitante mix di contraddizioni capaci di rendere questa Guzzi V35c, avvolta nel suo manto oscuro, la “Regina Italiana” della notte.

È infatti a San Benedetto del Tronto, tra le mura di Bombay Street Garage, che prende vita una special capace di coniugare il classicismo degli anni ‘50 con le esigenti aspettative della scena motociclistica attuale, dove il vecchio stanca e il nuovo già annoia.

“Avevamo davanti agli occhi l’ennesima Moto Guzzi da rendere Special”, ci raccontano. “Non volevamo ripetere le cose già fatte e allo stesso tempo volevamo dare una certa continuità con il lavoro passato e non creare qualcosa di completamente diverso. Proprio lo sforzo di bilanciare queste due esigenze ci ha guidato nel progetto della #bombay6”.

Nera. Anzi nerissima. Il nome? Mai così azzeccato: Black Moon (luna nera), quasi a suggellare nel proprio dna quell’atavico e inarrestabile scontro tra luce e tenebre. La scelta monocromatica non è scontata, ma è proprio ciò che partecipa alla creazione di una nuova e multiforme identità: aggressiva, elegante, sobria nella celebrazione dei dettagli. Black Moon appartiene al rider che la sa domare.

Dettagli tecnici:
-cerchi neri lucidi con gomme Avon
-forcelle originali accorciate con ammortizzatori Koni di serie
-motore aperto, revisionato e spruzzato di nero
-impianto frenante Brembo di serie migliorato con tubi freno aeronautici Frentubo, filtri aria in spugna neri sui  carburatori, gas rapido Domino montato sul nuovo sterzo e tachimetro Smiths in stile retró
-sul posteriore, fanalini a led con frecce incorporate
-sull'anteriore, anello led di posizione, e affiancamento di due mini frecce anch’esse a led
-sella artigianale in pelle bicolore, scamosciata e nera
-scarico artigianale con collettori 2 in 1 e silenziatore con db killer intercambiabili, tutto rigorosamente verniciato di  nero

Ancora una volta lo stile come partecipazione di un’idea, e l’idea come esaltazione di una scelta: cerchiamo la libertà sulle due ruote, ma siamo noi a indirizzarle dove più desideriamo!

Berena: The historic racing driver AU fic

So, aside from making heart-eyes over Berena and writing fanfic it’s not like I have a life, is it?, one of my other interests is motorsport; more specifically women in motor racing. Recently, I’ve been researching some of the amazing women racers in the earlier days of the sport (seriously, if you have the time, look up the likes of Hellé Nice and Kay Petre!) and this photo (below) of Maria Teresa de Filippis (the first ever woman to race in Formula 1) caught my eye… is it just my fevered imagination or does she look rather like a young Catherine Russell from about the era when she was in Chandler and Co?! 

Anyway…this may have got me thinking bouncing in my seat with glee at finding a historical doppelgänger …and somehow I now have a pile of sketched notes for a historical racing driver AU where a young and feisty Serena Campbell inherits a fortune when her husband Edward dies, which she subsequently invests in buying a racing car and competing with.
Berenice Wolfe reluctantly tags along to a local racing event one day to support her friend/potential romantic suitor, the newly-qualified Dr Marcus Dunn who has decided that he wants to dabble in amateur racing. The day is predictably dull for Bernie, only for her to become completely transfixed by the stunning female driver in the little blue Bugatti who wins the final race of the day…
Over the summer, Bernie travels to all of the local race meets in hope of seeing the mysterious lady racer again and eventually comes face to face Serena in the pits, who is loudly chastising her mechanic for her car having broken down on the last lap of the race. 

“Which part of ‘I need my car today’ are you struggling to understand?!”


The two women strike up a friendship and slowly begin to fall for each other. Other possible scenes include possible appearances of Jason as Serena’s nephew and chief racing strategy advisor/statistician, Serena teaching Bernie to drive and then eventually training her up as her mechanic for the next season (there were also several famous female mechanics based at Brooklands, so possible historical points to draw from)….

Am I being completely crazy, or is this something that people would possibly want to read?! Let me know what you think!
