A few pics of my bike projects.
« on: April 06, 2013, 05:52:47 PM »
First off is a basket case Moto Guzzi Le Mans that I bought in a million bits, it looked like this when I got it.
 


Like this when I'd finished
.

Another basket case that I resurrected, only got a pic of the final result.


Yet another.


Still got his one, had it 15 years and gave it a full rebuild about 30,000 miles ago, still going like the clappers.


As you may have guessed, I like Moto Guzzis.

Wonderful restoration bike.

My basket case was a 1960 Mach 1 Ducati single. It came in several boxes of crud from different sources. It is my avatar. It was a great GP replica racer.

So many engines to build and yet so little time.

Never owned one. But, those Guzzi's had presence, in my eyes........  :headbang:

Nice machines!  :thumbup:

Still drilling holes... Sometimes, in the right place!

Still modifying bits of metal... Occasionally, making an improvement!

Guzzi's are nice. Something special for sure. I walk to the train station and there has been a new (I assume new as I have never seen one before) Guzzi parked on the side of the road. Will have to snap a picture of it.

They've got a unique character.  I borrowed a newer ( 04ish) LeMans for a day a couple years ago.  Fun bike.
