Magnificent Montessa!

This speaks to my recent rant about clean simple reliable and attractive enduro bikes Fantastic build!

MACCO Nº2: MONTESA ENDURO 75L “MONTY”

When Miguel, the owner, came to us we were finishing our first project, a Kawasaki 1100 ST. He told us he own a 1976 Montesa Enduro 75L that was at his garage out of work for years. He asked us to fix and customize it but preserving the essence of the bike: “i want your touch on it but i wan´t people to say: that´s a montesa enduro…. uhmmm, isn´t it?”
But he ask us to give her our touch, with a modern new vision and in a street tracker style. And he wanted red.
So, we were finishing a thoroughbred horse and now a grasshopper came into our garage, and that was the challenge. Who said grasshoppers aren’t smart?
We made a previous design of the Montesa and we called “Monty”. We decided to paint it in a diferent red, more attracive and glossy, and change the look of this originally not too much nice bike into a smart street tracker but preserving its “spanish soul”. The other thing that we loved of this new proyect was the fact that we´d never seen a Montesa Enduro customized, so we think it was great “Monty” will be the one.

These are some of the specifications:
-Engine rebuilt
-Rear suspension: Marzocchi E81
-Rizoma handlebars
-Solo Seat by Maccomotors
-New head pipe by Maccomotors
-New exhaust custom painted
-New steel side panels by Maccomotors
-New aluminium number plate by Maccomotors
-Mudguards by Maccomotors
-New headlight enduro style
-New rear light
-New grips
-Single tachometer
-Tyres: Front: Pirelli MT013
Rear: Pirelli Scorpion MX (wider size)
-New paint: frame, engine, gas tank, side panels, mudguards, rims and others.

We hope you like it.
Now it´s time for the Triumph Bonneville SE.

PD: I send you a photo of a Montesa Enduro 75 for you to see the change. This is not the one we customized. Monty was a mess and in pieces when we took it. All the customization process is www.maccomotors.com and in the facebook fanpage

    1. Beautiful bike, I wouldn’t call it a joke by a long shot. A reverse megaphone on a 2 stroke is a new one on me though.
