Infernal Chaos (Mortágua Fighter 9)
Being a writer for a bike publication isn’t all about the people you meet. It’s nice to make new acquaintances, but sometimes, just sometimes, it’s all about the bike. These creations require the front page, the main story, with a ‘job well done’ to the artist that brought their idea to life.
For the record, I ride a cruiser. I always have. And at the risk of getting dirty looks from many of you sport bike officianatos that are reading this right now, I’ve never really tried riding a sport bike. We do own 2 enduros, a 125 and a 250, but my recent ‘episode’ on a 50cc mini bike didn’t leave much to the imagination as to my handling skills of a powerful sport bike. Let’s just say, my partaking in riding a sport bike would probably be comical for the person watching, yet stupid on my part for deciding to try. I like fast cars, muscle cars to be exact, so you see, a fast bike would have me wrapped around a tree or ending up in someone’s lake.
However, a sweet little custom out of Mortagua, in central Portugal, just may change my mind!
I’m talking about Infernal Chaos. A bike that breaks all the rules in the standard sport-bike design.
The creator of this masterpiece is Carlos Rodrigues. And by the way, it’s not his first one.
Built in 2019, it’s his 9th project. From the stunning aeronautic lines that are similar to a B2 Bomber, this creation is not only spectacular to look at it, but it’s actually road worthy.
This hobby began for Carlos in 1999, and some, like this piece, have taken a full 20 months to build. These are his own to show, so there’s no rushing with perfection.
This one-of-a kind build has all the looks of a piece that has just stepped out of the future. It looks like nothing I’ve ever seen (and for the record, is not for sale, so put your wallets away). Looking at it, you can see that it started out as a sport bike, then morphed into something that I’m not sure I believe is road worthy, but I’m willing to test out that theory. However, as one would expect, these are show bikes. Just for those of us that appreciate the beauty, the distinctive lines and most of all, the imagination of such a build. It’s not surprising that its category of make is a Radical Streetfighter.
After looking at the first pics of this bike, you could understand that its designer has some experience in working with glass, (with its sharp edges and design). This beauty brings the term ‘custom’ to a whole new level. Using a Suzuki Bandit 600 engine, as well as tires, electronics and carburetors, that’s all that’s original on this bike. Everything else, from the steel frame to the headlights, right down to the killer bodywork design, well that’s all custom-made my friend. The body itself is all aluminum, with a killer paint job to finish it off.
In case you’d like to see it first-hand, Carlos will be taking it to various shows in and around Europe. And we’ve been told, he’s already working on his next design. I wouldn’t mind one of these in my garage.
If you want to see more, just google “Mortágua Fighter”. May I suggest another one of his creations, the Disturbed Cadaver. I love this bike!
Keep an eye out for this guy, as he’s already working on his next creation. I myself, cannot wait!
