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.
