Very nice! Are you going to stick with the square slide Dellorto's?

Seems like I have that effect on bikes :)

Tempted to make a try with some Keihin flat slides, but I guess I'll make do with the Dell'ortos until the season ends...

Don't feel bad, I make my CL350 look like a moped.


Very, very nice bike, by the way.

Man, you really nailed this one. The proportions, small details, everything, just go together like they were meant to be.

Your Guzzi looks way bad ass! Makes the BMW look wimpy. (I've got 2 airheads.) I'd love to see dual under-seat mufflers on it. That would use that up-swept space under the tail section well. But that's a subjective aesthetic.

Well done!

Well - if you live on a small island with more marinas than malls, it's perfectly normal

And a big thank you to all of you for your comments & feedback!
This is a project still very much in evolution, and I very much value your feedback.

I will for sure keep you posted as this projects goes along, and once again - thanks for the valuable feedback!
