I'm not sure I understand the knobby tires on a bike with 3 inches of suspension travel and 4 inches of ground clearance??

I wonder if it actually goes.  The battery appears to be well hidden.

Pretty decent model.  Spokes, rear shock spring and throttle cables aren't to scale.

Yeah I had to look really close.

Looks like they kit-bashed the Tamiya(?) Centauro kit that was out a few years ago. I have one of those kits untouched in the box still.

I don't get the tire choice either. But add small hugger style fenders and it could be real fun to ride. Aesthetics? Doesn't matter if I like them or not. The fact someone spent the time, money and effort building a custom Moto Guzzi is good enough for me. Congratulations to them.

For Ken or Gumby? What scale is the Tamiya kit? I have a Tamiya Mike Hailwood replica kit NIB.

I kinda favor these two:


That one was customised by Moto Strada who were my local dealer, in Shipley, West Yorkshire. They built some beauties. I stopped by whenever I was out that way, on bike or in car, to see what they had in the showroom. Sadly they fell out with MG, and have now moved out into the Dales, where they just do custom bikes of all makes.
If they were still a Guzzi dealership, and were still in Shipley, I suspect that I would have ridden, and perhaps bought, a V85 by now. Fortunately, there is now no dealership near enough for me to be tempted, and anyway, the money from selling the V7ll has largely gone on Moon hifi.

  Looks like what I build but to higher cost for more refinement. Change to rear fender and street tires. Not all of us ride long distance or in the rain, :wink:
I ride junk, some of it actually goes fast
