Hi again:

Sometimes bikes take its time to be built and sometimes they come together. Just now we finished the rebuilt of the Big Z, Macco Nº1, and here you have the new BIG Z RACER. We know you featured our Dusty Pearl recently but things are so and we want to show the Big Z Racer to the rest of the world, so it´s up to you when you want to do it. Thanks anyway for sharing.



Fate brought home again the Macco Nº1. Sandro, the previous owner had a little scare in her, so he was told at home no more bikes. Sad for Sandro but happy to get back the Big Z at the garage again.

So we decided that the time of the Big Z had already passed and thought to make a completely new bike, on the same base, in the same spirit, but with a new look and a new style. The idea of a cafe racer was always in our plans, so this baby was born: the BIG Z RACER.

Sober colors, gray matte chosen from the Ducati´s colour chart, and black, as well as many improvements as new handlebars, new floating brake discs, new seat, K&N filters, new grips Beston style black, new lights, new exhausts, new side panels and side number plates, make this Kawasaki Z1100 ST’s MACCO No. 4.

And, by now, it´s for sale!

Macco Nº3, a Triumph Bonneville SE customized by Maccomotors

It was part of a mass mailing but it’s still a nice build. Never really knew where the styling might go with the SE models. This seems like a nice direction. Very well photographed too.





















Here is the Macco Nº3, a Triumph Bonneville SE customized by Maccomotors. We named DUSTY PEARL, and here is a brief overview of its history:

When Juan Manuel, the owner, bought his new Triumph Bonneville SE with standard mag wheels still didn´t hear about bikes customizations. And then he discovered it. He was impressed with the Macco Nº1 an then contacted us to completely change the look of his bike. He wanted us to build an industrial-looking bike and retro at the same time. The first was to change the original rims by spokes rims, and thereafter, all that Maccomotors would provide. So we set to work with the design and we have changed almost everything. One of the most noteworthy contributions in Dusty Pearl are the handmade side panels that left the rear brake pump outside. We love it.

The spectacular photos of Pearl Dusty have been made by the great Sergio Ibarra from agency (please if you publish the photos Make mention of Sergio Ibarra)

Here you have the specifications of Dusty Pearl:

· Rizoma 22 mm handlebars
