    This is my 1997 Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport, which was painted by the factory original in a black metallic paint. This bikes paint looks more bronze than black when the light hits the bike in an angle.

    I should have held out on the Twin and gotten the Bobber. I've loved that bike since it came out.

    They are both nice bikes , the Street Twin is one I love too. Certainly a bit more practical than the Bobber. I'm working on making mine bit more practical , to the disgust and dismay of many. But I enjoy it in its raw form as well. Just , at times , you need to be able to carry more than just your wallet. :D

    Yeah, I have an old tank bag I throw on the Twin if I need a little more carrying capacity, mostly for when I do longer rides. If I'm taking a passenger or a longer trip, that's why I have the Tiger.

    Still, it's a gorgeous looking machine. The thing that does it for me is the drag bars and the fat front tire. Those are the two things I lust after. If I can get a wider front on the twin, I'd like to do it, but I know it'll require a bit more than what I could find out of a catalogue.

    You definitely captured the bronze in the last picture. Beautiful color!

    I need to buy me a better camera one day, since the iPhone does take pretty good pictures, but a good camera captures the details and depth so much better. Either way, the pictures below show of the different color changes depending upon the light and view angle pretty good.
