New Guzzi special underway from John W at MOTONERO

This is the current Guzzi special being built by the capable hands of John W at MOTONERO Motorcycles, and it's going to be very nice. John buil the Guzzi cafe' racer that we featured fully in Issue Two of the mag, and we have another of his bikes coming up in Issue 5 soon.

We really like the way he mixes in modern components like the Ohlins remote reservoir shocks and Paioli USD forks, with an old school approach to the look of the rest of the bike - but John just always gets the lines right, whereas so many other Guzzi specials fall flat. 

This one also features 41mm FCR Keihin flatslides too, so we're expecting it to travel fast.

Keep an eye on what John's up to at his blog:  MOTONERO

Elvisly essential workshop timepiece

Purchased for 20p at our local car boot sale. Bargain. And it works. Wonder if the signature is genuine?
