George Dockray sends in some pictures of this beautiful Moto Guzzi frankenstien Cafe.
I noticed that you like Guzzis of the hot-rodded sort, so I thought that I would send you some shots of one that I concocted that might described as “what happens when you heat the garage”
It’s a mixture of various components – ’75 frame, ’78 engine, 80’s-ish gearbox, 2001 clutch, ’95 forks, 80’s wheel hubs. The tank & seat is from Manel Segarra in Spain. Pain color from a 2002 Guzzi V11 “Tenni”. Fairing is a re-pop of a Magni. Instrument panel, exhaust, battery box, electrical system / wiring by me. Used to work on rebuilding wrecked airplanes so hence the riveted structure and airplane-style wiring.
Took 2 1/2 years to build and as much fun as you can have with your clothes on ………………………..
Thanks Much George! Another Beautiful Guzzi!
I stumbled across this bike again by accident over on ADV rider. This same bike was the subject of an earlier post HERE! Anyone know anything more about this beauty?

Merci Beaucoup Jean Francois!
Not sure how to catagorize this bike. Cafe?… not really. Streetfighter?… sorta. BADASS? Damm straight.
I stumbled across this very radical build pic on a message board. It was billed as an XS650 based custom. I’m not so sure though. Either way there’s a LOT of love in this build. There is no other info available. If anyone can fill us in it’d be much appreiated.
