Needs knobbies but points for the brown grips.
Yes! Any mention of Moto Morini is always welcome!
After four decades, the 1980-81 500 Sport remains my definitive benchmark for motorcycle aesthetics.
Do you have any info on this bike. Can't tell it's a street bike or race bike.
Edit: Ah, found it.
178 HP Turbo Buell by Hazam Motorworks.
While we are looking at Harley cafe bikes:
Harton CR1200 from Stile Italiano. https://www.returnofthecaferacers.com/harley-davidson-cafe-racer/harton-cafe-racer/
Lightly modified '87 Cagiva 650SS. One the best of the Pantah series.
Must have spent some time brushing the sand out of the tread.
Is that like cutting the extruded nipples off the tires before a photoshoot ?
I love that era of Triumph (the iconic tank badge for one thing) ... the scoop on the drum brake is big enough to throw the steering off.
Nice looking bike!
Seems to me the swingarm could use beefing up, if for no other reason than to be consistent with the other enhancements.
The big scoop would let lots of air in, if an equal amount of air could get out the back. Kinda like running dual quads on a 440 wedge with a single 1-3/4" exhaust.
(huh? what's he talking about? just how old is this guy?)
Could the other side of the drum be perforated with drilled holes to allow cross flow?
Air in on the right side and out on the left side.
Swing arm came with the frame kit, I have one, though had mine made to take the older Ironhead engine.
That would do fine. Then you even might not need the scoop at all.
