    The orange one is another typical Hipster machine but I actually dont mind the 2nd one. It looks reasonably proportioned and rideable. I’d go with a more tradition Bikini Fairing and seat though.

    If you're in the mood to modify a Guzzi, give me a something along the lines of a cool naked standard. It also needs to be for 2 riders in my case. I'd love to see an updated Breva 1200...or even a heavily "breathed on" Griso (needs a tail that'l sit a pillion with a little comfort.) Someone breed those two and see what you get!!

    *and I don't want something that looks like a Norge!

    Oh the second one is rideable enough, no argument there, its just that the whole 'Cafe' thing has just been 'Groundhog Day'd' to death. One thing you can say about this one is at least it doesn't use the obligatory early LeMans tank and uses the one off an SPII, Mille GT, T5 which at least makes a bit of a change. The rest of it is just entirely yawn worthy.

    Outside the short rear/seat the orange bobber looks pretty stock. Has stock airbox but but fueling probably sucks with those pipes.

    That Cali-14 with dustbin fairing...abomination

    Yup, you're absolutely 100% correct. I so love the idea of some over made up white boy model sitting astride a deliberately obsolete motorbike platform wearing a fairing that was outlawed in Motorsport for safety reasons the year after I was fucking BORN that I stand in slack-jawed, panty-wetting admiration of their weird tyred monstrosity and whatever demented message it is supposed to convey to people in the second decade of the twenty first century!

    When you have worked out a treatise that can explain to a layman, (Me f'rinstance!) how slavish homilies to failed engineering projects from a period when your grandfather was young add anything to the general improvement of the human condition, or even have any relevance to the more selfish and hedonistic pastime of motorcycling? Please! Send it to me! Preferably on a roll that is soft, strong and very, very long, like the better types of terlet paper.........

    Your welcome.

    You want 'Art'? This is fucking 'Art'



    Paul's six speed Daytona that predated the 'Nuovo Hi-Cams' by years. Even now when I look at it a little bit of wee escapes!

    It was a labour of love, built with passion and the best shit that was available at the time. As a personal expression of what Moto Guzzi should stand for it is unsurpassed in the last twenty years, and I include our own 1400 Griso project, of which I'm very proud to have been a part of, in that.

    These whey, masturbatory, excuses for motorbikes and their *Creators* need taking out the back for a damned good kicking.

    Forza Guzzi! We don't need them!

    Figure Eights

    These "artisan builds" and their creators should be entered in an old school figure-8 demolition derby that continues until mechanized movement ceases. Then, a vintage bulldozer pushes the remains into a ditch!
