Hey AC,Was thinking about your project since seeing it at the Meltdown in may, and your progress by the time of the Guzzi lunch at Greenhouse....You've got a huge tank there to work with, and judging from the seating position and intended use of the bike... it doesnt seem like you are going to need 4-5 gal of gas capacity for extended long tours or marathon rides (or endurance racing attempts )Since you are going the street-legal route, and will have a lot more electronic do-dads and wires and such than the original bikes... it seems you could block out a 'false' section or box in the underside of the tank to stash that stuff along the frame tubes and hide it from view by fitting the tank over it to preserve the look of a race bike. Seems like 3 gallon tank capacity would be more than enough for this rig?Just a thought, love this project, will be followingChad
This is such a cool project! You are taking this Guzzisti thing to an extreme!
I checked both frames and the center stand bumper is located in the same place for both.This is the V700
Very good progress, aluminium welding is not easy. I have only done it with TIG, I could imagine that it is difficult managing the heat with a torch. Keep the updates coming! It is going to be a great looking bike!
As the taillight and license plate fitment is resolved, the rear fender will be shortened. Probably will start by trimming it just longer than the license plate and turning a slight lip or bead on the fender. I also need to work the front of the seat to better fit with the frame top tube & along the other tangent frame rails. The gap is unsightly, but also concerned about bending the seat pan. Mounting arrangement needs address, so this will all be done together.With all the concerns to address resolving fitment of seat-frame-taillight-frame, this seat may ultimately serve to be the pattern for the next seat. For now, it's good to have it in hand to use..
I know your trying to copy a older bike, and Im really not sure of the details of that bike, but adding a small triangle filler to that front edge would look good. Doesn't have to fill the space, just a little bit of filler to sweep a little curve down to let the eye fill in the space a little and connect.. Great work!! I loe tin work, but have little or none in the skill department.
