So Chiefrider, was this just an interesting thread? Are you working on a project? Fattening your photo file?

I think it is a Zagato Guzzi, based on a late model V7 Sport.

Google "Zagato Guzzi".

The guy started with a 1000SP, if I'm not mistaken. Not much of the original bike left. Swingarm conversion to monoshock. Hand-formed alloy tank and bodywork.

Any Tonti-framed Guzzi could be used to build a bike like this. The bodywork is available from a couple of sources.

It's a very cool take on the British-style cafe racer...

Got me- I just picked it up along the way and stored it in my computer.
Have a photo shop print it for you?

OK, Uncle Ernie, you got me on the shrink's couch...A persistant daydream of mine is to open an Indian motorcycle motor rebuilding service when I retire (still a few years away). My first intention was to fish for an appropriate logo, which would be that vintage image of a cute girl on an Indian flathead V-twin. Think WWII Aircraft nose-art, classic pinup style illustration.

With that in mind, then I thought...why limit the thread to just a girl on an Indian? I am certainly enjoying the stuff that is rolling in!

Keep those photos coming in, folks--it's all good!

This is a great looking photo, but the more I look at it the more I wonder if its faked.
The perspective & sizing does not seem right, though I guess its taken through a long lens which can distort things.
I know its old, but trick photos have been around a long time.
Any photo experts?
