We got the Goose new in NZ.
Gorgeous work and beautiful parts but it doesn't look right to me.
Nice machine but proof that the headlight can sometimes be the most difficult thing.........
Does sort of look like it was a last-minute parts box grab...rest of bike is very nice IMHO
Agreed on the Guzzi, needs a big chrome headlight, and a rear subframe, mudguard and tail light
The Norton on the other hand, in my opinion, has the wrong Brake Disc, Headlight, Mirror, Seat, Seat base, and then there's the butchered rear subframe and the mess under the tank, including the red barrels.
The engine/trans/primary looks kind of lost in that frame, as if it was made for another engine, like a Vincent. It looks really long. I know Commando heads slant forward, and Atlas heads backwards, but just looks weird with all that space in there.
A Shorrock blower would fill that space nicely..
With a turbocharger in between! That oughta turn that 3-piece crank into a few more pieces.
I'd still take it!
Shorrock blower in a cafe… Like this ?
With a supercharger and flat slide carb
Certainly a gorgeous machine and an excellent modern interpretation of the classic cafe single. But you're right, why the gap under the tank? With all the work that obviously went into the build, that seems like a huge oversight. Why not build the tank to fill the area? Or, get creative with the oil cooler and place a smaller one on each side under the tank, shaped to fill that gap.
Not a cafe, but check out what this guy did with the radiator on his retro-mod. More details here www.flickr.com/photos/motersickle/albums/72157651307977078
The fabrication details of this build are pretty tough to beat.
I know! Did you check out his Honda Elsinore build as well?
He left room for a DR BIG engine...
or the 1800 even?
Well...you don't see that everyday!
