    I think “Hell” for a beautiful Moto Guzzi motorcycle is to be hacked into one of these unrideable, god-awful crap design, cafe racer junk piles. Especially for an engine as utterly fantastic as the Daytona/Centauro 4V.

    What is the obsession with this crap anyway? I just don’t get it at all.

    Boiling it down to the essence of Motorcycling -
    Tank, motor, wheels and a “Seat” if you have to...
    Ah the Magneto days when you didn’t even need a battery !

    Indeed some are “Not that attractive” ( can you say Ugly) ?
    Between “One Motorcycle for All” and the Frankenstein contraptions put together in some “Shed” there is going to be some variation in what might be generally accepted as Nice/good/attractive , and the abortion that should not have seen the light of day...

    You probably don’t have any love for the Mad Max mechanicals ...

    One problem with putting a 4V in a Tonti frame is it will TWIST itself apart and you'll have a cracked up frame! Looks cool though unrideable after a while. The reason they made a Spine frame.

    What happens is you end up sliding, grinding, rolling in, all ground up BUT almost dead. ASK me how I know.
    Hey, on that note, Mike the Bike is racing at the airstrip in Maine this week for a record high speed run. 141mph is what he's beating.

    Two years ago, Me and the Honda went over the car “independently “ I did a perfect backward layout into a slide then finished with a 720 ( 960 ? ) corkscrew, dazed and confused , staggered to my feet and asked the guy running towards me “ Can you help me move the bike off the Road ?”
    He did , then I bummed a smoke off his Girl and waited for the Circus to arrive.

    Everything was intact, but the next day it seems I now had some black guys legs ???

    I gave That guy 50$ to take the bike home in his truck after I borrowed a “ramp”to load it up, then went to the ER for the night.

    It’s All fun and games until some Dumb @#$& turns left in front of you !
