    My first Guzzi, Jackal, bought new in’99, is due for a refresh after @240k (s)miles of service, as well as my back with twin shocks... so it’s going under the knife. Design inspiration at the bottom; 250 GT.

    Agree with that!
    I'd rather have a GTM than a Motus but gonna have to wait until after the house is built.

    Thanks Pat, I agree, which is why I’m doing this.
    Picked up the tank and frame today (below), and my design inspiration included.

    A little porting and freshening up of our 1151cc heads for the hot rod Jackal 3.0 / GTM-01.5 project. Still can’t get over the size of the valves.

    Love the logo with the Italian and USA colours. Very subtle and classy.

    Thanks, I think so too. It’s a simple watermark of my logo, as all of the bikes will wear the winged badge logos (no stickers). And France isn’t red, white & blue... ;)

    To keep it period feel, thinking the Monza cap... but I did have to slip the Tenni green tank on for fun. The whole front end isn’t the one I’m running on this build, and the blue is protective tape.

    The colour of that tank is absolutely Beautifull & yes the Monza cap sets it off just right. Also the touch of the
    Burt Munroe type tribute in the background is fitting
    Just reading the full thread & so impressed with even the amount of Work ( let alone thought) you pout into the Jig!
    Trout said it before & I agree - don't know how you do it all - full credit to you mate!
    I could never afford something as awesome as one of your awesome creations, but at least I have finished wrenching my own & creation of a 992 Sport & start riding ( pics on Spine Forum).
