This brand is not in my area of expertise so I’ll need help on this one. Beautiful build though!
I read the article on this bike and while it’s a cool project I think it really skewed things a lot having the owner / builder of Mule Motorcycles essentially create this bike. I’d wager that it’d be a little tough for even a good amateur to put a bike like this together for $8500. Not without falling into a LOT of lucky deals on parts. It’s stil a cool ride though.

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?
