Children of a famous Spanish artist, it was in the destiny of brothers Pablo and Carlos Delgado to be on the creative side of things. They have been traditional metal craftsmen since they started their foundry back in 1995, but it was only recently they started sculpting custom motorcycles. Their passion for vintage Kawasakis, specifically the Z models, have seen quite a few roll out of their Valtoron workshop, and this is the latest one in line, called the ‘La Latina 900′.
Starting with a 1976 Kawasaki Z900 A4 that needed some TLC, the siblings crafted the entire alloy bodywork, the short café racer seat, the headlight brackets, the chain cover, the registration plate holder and the triple tree. Performance mods include four Mikuni 26mm carbs with K&N filters. The beautiful alloy 4 into 4 exhausts are handmade, as is the fuel tank, which also gets a custom brass gas cap. One of the only parts the brothers didn’t build is the Raask rear sets and controls. The ride has been upgraded with Showa rear shocks and a Kawasaki 36mm fork, with braking duties handled by a double 296mm disc brake up front and a 200mm drum brake at the rear.
