Old School Moto Guzzi Cafe Racer – huge grin factor – not a slow bike. She’s a bit of a beast!
One of the nicest Cafe’d Moto Guzzi’s around. Draws a crowd wherever she goes and a blast to ride, great handling with plenty of power.
(check MCN review of the original V1000G5 which is what she’s based on, you’ll be pleasantly surprised)!
Built in 2013 by myself while I lived in Germany so conforms to the strict TUV system for anyone wanting to return it to foreign soil. Imported to UK March 2017, currently with UK V5 & fresh MOT.

Built using the V1000 G5 frame and engine with a mix of Guzzi parts mostly new & some reconditioned in an attempt to stay true to the Café Racer ethos. Everything else aftermarket is of high quality, I don’t cut corners on quality.
Engine is stock, stripped, checked, re-gasketed & painted, believed to have around 40,000km on it, there’s no sign of wear on the inside. Extended sump added bringing the filter to the outside and aiding cooling. I’ve put 5000 dry miles on it since 2013. The engine is a powerhouse, a workhorse, reliable and full of Torque. This is not a slow bike and not for the fait hearted, it’s an absolute joy to throw around the countryside and good for 130mph (accurately tested with a specially calibrated speedo). Always kept well maintained and has never let me down!
Dellorto PHF Carbs, jetted and adjusted for large diameter bellmouths and straight through Lafranconi Competizioni pipes, (legal in both Germany and UK due to it being an 80’s bike) I have the noise test doc from the Germans, they sound awesome, low down and dirty for those that don’t know the Guzzi noise.
