The coolest workshops of Italy – Asso Special Bike

That of Carlo Colombo said “Blood” is an aesthetic aggressive and radical. The felines custom of his workshop are the equivalent of the supercar
In the workshop of Asso Special bikes they lose metallic texture and become like rubber. Let themselves pull, crush, bend aesthetics most radical custom. The larger and larger, faster they give up. Not to banality, but the big hands and mustache Westerns by Carlo Colombo bounty hunter, 61, from thirty undisputed protagonist of Italian custom bike scene. Environment has a nickname of “Wild Bunch”: Blood. Its aggressive and radical aesthetic that pushes the limits dell’accettabile always a degree and a further millimeter. Forms and conventions will liquefy as in a Dali painting. To say the last Motor Bike Expo in Verona, Asso Special presented a Yamaha Tmax stripped from plastics. The view of the girders of the aluminum frame has regained the intimate motorcycle identities disguised as a maxi scooter, breaking the urban and philosophical taboo that has always demarcates serious motorcyclists scooter by upstarts.
The workshop of Bosisio Parini, in the province of Lecco, is a menagerie of dozens of big cats ready to attack the road. Colombo shares it with the junior partner Giorgio Galli, 24 years. The office is lined with plates, cups and prizes captured in decades of raids between the international bike show – he was one of the first Italians, if not the first, to exhibit at the Daytona Bike Week in Florida. “By now we are not, we will have to move into a larger environment,” grins beneath the mustache, pointing to a pile of trophies in the corner. The vice of the podium has not yet lost: the Motor Bike Expo has brought home a second with his last chopper. A chassis West Coast Choppers exaggerated, with the front wheel from 23 inches and the rear by 20 dressed by oversized tire to 280 mm.
If the Special Ace full custom make aggressive school, you must also have the ability to master the art of turning pieces scattered in a vision (a nightmare, some would say) burning traffic lights. “I raced in the drag racing from 1999 to 2001, then I worked as a driver for the Suzuki Alstare Superbike and before Troy Corser, then Loris Capirossi have asked me to build him a bike. I always liked the speed, which is why my custom have this sporty look that appeals to customers. ” Mostly people who parked his Special Ace in the garage next to a Lambo or Ferrari. It is never cost problems. “They call to see if I have some ideas, I propose and ask him to realize it. And if I build a bike show, sometimes they come to accaparrarsela when a skeleton on the workshop bench “is still. In fact, the Special Ace are the equivalent of the supercar. Whether it’s turning a V-Rod Harley-Davidson in monster supercharged surge, or make a custom-built around the aluminum frame ASB 199R. The specialty of the house that has created a limited series of supercustom under two tons – the chassis weighs just seven pounds, as a race bike!
Spades and forks, wheels separable, special pieces in fine materials: when Columbus and Galli drop the Ace, almost always has a winning hand. Also on the TMax. “A friend says: let us what you want. Sure? He had seen the Hyper Modified by Roland Sands, which seemed nice, but we upset enough to bring it back to a motorcycle size, even more handy and powerful. Practically there are only original engine and chassis, with rear fender that serves as fuel tank and twin exhausts as the 199R. The result was that, in addition to having a great success, in Verona people did not understand it was a TMax. ” The cost? “Basically it’s like comprarsene other two, because the pieces are handcrafted or top of the range. But keeping the originals we can build replicas at reasonable prices and requests start coming in. “

An idea for a weekend of total relaxation? Masseria San Domenico, in Puglia

A Savelletri, in the heart of Apulia, is the place that most resembles the Macondo of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, an oasis of serenity in the midst of olive trees
“Many years later, facing the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendía was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice.” Thus begins the masterpiece One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. “Gabo” used to say that a good old age is an honest pact with solitude. But he did not need to bargain, the feelings of the people have wrapped like a cocoon of tenderness and gratitude to the end, or perhaps loneliness existed in the depths of his mind of man too deep to be fully understood. Loneliness was down, to cause physical discomfort silent, where supporting the ear could hear the throb of the soul.
Why think of Garcia Marquez here, in the heart of Puglia? Why think about the loneliness, the beneficial, healthy, one to which every human being auto-armed and equipped with desk-think at least once a day, when in agony in a traffic jam or quivers in an open space? I’ll explain.
Crossing the threshold of Masseria San Domenico, after the curiosity grows as a fair tide to full moon along the endless path in the olive groves leading to the reception, you feel in Macondo. Yes, in Macondo. A Macondo among trulli, with Aureliano Buendia that puts the “e” instead of “a”, with Negroamaro of Puglia that caresses the throat instead Agua ardiente, but still Macondo, a magical world, isolated in his Beauty, a kind of Avalon south where the round table sit limply knights who is granted every delight.
Macondo is an imaginary village where to lord it is a merciless sun, the sun saber shadows, makes clear, excessive, Manichean in their game of black and white. So at the Colonial. Stroll in this wonderful farm that resembles the South American ranches, slides along the walls and immaculate ado about sublime baroque details; steps facing immense sunny courtyards of paved and you think that somewhere will win a duelist with a Colt in hand and the notes of Ennio Morricone will vibrate in the air that smells of oleander flowers. But no, it is not a duelist, not Clint Eastwood with a cigar between his lips narrow slit, is one of the girls of thalassotherapy, which invites you to dive into the pool of sea water at 28 degrees, oxygenated every day, and thou follow docile docile, under a verriere superb. Your body no longer takes orders from your mind, rebels in anarchy soft and you glide into the warm water. It happens in Macondo Macondo south, first exit right.
The ancient heart of the farm is the beautiful watch tower of the Knights of Malta, dating back to the fifteenth century. It is the nucleus, the magic lantern of stone and lime under a parade of the centuries in this corner of the South that the story has come to light. At night the tower wears lanterns and candles that enhance friezes and loopholes, and the building becomes sentinel of the beautiful pool of brackish water, carved into natural rocks. The fortified farm, immersed in its green cloud of silver a hundred hectares of olive groves, is a world of relaxation, culinary pleasures – is the temple of Mediterranean cuisine – and beauty. Gravitate around some of the most attractive locations of Puglia: the white Ostuni, sort of immaculate wedding cake resting on a promontory to celebrate the meeting between the earth and the Adriatic; Alberobello with its trulli – ah, if only Tolkien was born further south! – Martina Franca with its joys and its baroque palaces exuberant, Polignano a Mare, with secrets of his amazing Grotta Palazzese dug into the cliff, where the nobles of yore were given to parties and revelry.
He visits, and return willingly in Macondo, but without dueling nor irascible colonels South Americans. These will be enclosed in the book of Garcia Marquez that you brought with you, to read under the pergola, among the bougainvillea and prickly pears. Here Macondo, there is only the indolent magic, the rest is your imagination to build it. And be careful because “the inspiration does not give warnings.” He said “Gabo”. Have a good weekend.
