    No idea on that, they were just sitting outside that shop and I happen to be next-door buying parts for my bike... They looked cool so I took a photo....

    I agree they're cool looking - except for the tires.
    Maybe they were the only tires they had around that fit.

    I'd probably last about an half-an-hour on those seats...

    Shocks and fenders are a good idea too... those bikes aren't finished.
    Stock shocks on the one are probably 40 years old, no shocks on the other, and leading axle forks do not a good cafe racer make. These are hipster bait for the uninitiated and the non-rider.

    I finally, after I bought this bike two years ago, have this 1997 Sport issues sorted out. I rode her yesterday for an hour, and she did great.

    This will be my upcoming winter project. This 1994 MG 1100 Sport was Moto Guzzi's R&D bike. This color combination was never put into any production runs, so I am going to build me a matching tribute bike.

    Does this qualify as bike porn??
    Jeffy here had just retired and said he wanted to burn his suits and jump over them on an old bike at a friend's ranch in South Dakota. He started out with a sarong tied around his waist. As he was getting warmed up to hit the ramp, the sarong got caught in his chain and tore it off. Undeterred, he made his jump and I caught. Later, I had it blown up and made into a poster which was put up in the ranch house bathroom.

    Should be interesting to see if this makes it's way back to him....

    WELL....this story continues. El Jeffy, the guy in the photo, just got out of the hospital after a triple by pass. He is one tough dude. Many people have written about his ridding escapades, including Peter Egan. I'm hoping he's strong enough to do some riding come August when I get back up to SD.

    The Motus is just beautiful! What a shame the fate they realized.
