Moto Guzzi Le Mans Cafe Racer by Kaffeemaschine

View all 6 Photos

A bond of sleek and masculine, this rides got the confidence to keep things simple. Elongated exhausts coast down either side, stainless steel polished in a sexy copper tone. With a gorgeous leather saddle and covered handle bars it might just be one of those rare occasions of love at first sight.

It was a project request for a “pure cafe racer”, in which the brilliant Axel Budde of  Kaffeemaschine said yes please.  His eighteenth Moto Guzzi remodel comes from an old Le Mans MK II. The all over sanded semi-matte aluminum parts are handmade, the tank and fenders brushed. He added careful touch ups to the worn 1970 Italian black frame. Performance upgrades include HTMoto tuning to 1000cc capacity, electric ignition, Morad rims, improved suspension, Ikon back shocks, FAC internals in front forks, and a completely rebuilt brake system with modern cylinders, stainless hoses, and a new rear caliper.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she’s taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it’s a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
