Guzzi cafe racer

The place where Ash will doubtless post most of his pictures !
It's here to push the most worthless piles of rust & all trikes out the back of the scrapyard to make room for new rubbish.

I like Guzzis, and I like cafe racers too but for some reason I'm not too keen on this. Whadyafink?

It looks wrong because it's based on a custom styled bike, with some mismatched flat-track bits just stuck on.

oh dear.. :o thats a few Calis that have been sucessfully 'cafe'd' however on the smallblock customs the standard tank sits at an angle so needs a bit more thought put into it..

It looks like it started life as a Nevada. While it isn't pretty now, it's cheap and a different tank and seat combination might make all the difference and turn an ugly duckling into a swan. Mind you, I know Guzzi tanks can cost a bit.
