Italians sure knew how to build two and four stroke 50cc motorcycles. Grown men would race tiddlers like this for 24 hours at a time. This one started life as a rare tipo T2 SS motor without a home - so a frame was built for it, in a home workshop, in Tuscany. I love 2 strokes - rev 'em up and go go go - and this was one of the best I've ridden. That green door within a door surrounded by peeling yellow ochre render is also one of my favourite all-time Tuscan locations, and reminds me of warm sunshine and good times. More on the Maserati in issue 1.

Like all the best bespoke motorcycles, David McMillan's Moto Guzzi V7 Sport-based racer was built to one man's scheme and is constantly evolving - but don't be misled by the licence plate. This is a genuine racer currently in use on the road, and I was lucky enough to have a brief ride last year. I've ridden a few Guzzis over the years and this is up there amongst the most ferociously fast. Full story on the bike in issue 1.
