    As with the other build photos I've seen, it's like a striptease in reverse. Gets better the more you put on .

    Progress update pic. Redoing the seat, as I don’t like the leather color with the stunning paint.

    Agreed, the seat looks washed out. It's far too pale.

    I think I have been staring at that pic for about 5 minutes now.
    Well Done even with that seat.

    That seat style is so slick, can't wait until the new color.

    Todd love the two valve build like you and others think the seat might need a little color tweaking but overall this is a beautiful build.What might the weight be expected to be? May have to talk to ya about one of these.

    Hope to do a real photoshoot and video soon. Turned out better than I had hoped, and man it sure is an impressive runner. Dyno time soon as well. Expecting ~95 rwhp @ 416 lbs with 1 gallon of fuel.

    Guzzi Americas gave us a nice ping on social media... “Check out some of the amazing and unique bikes that were on display at this weekend’s Quail Motorcycle Gathering.”

    How is it you can eliminate the cooler? I would love to eliminate the cooler on my B11.

    Love this bike. Can see how its powered and what's powering it. Bet it rolls nice Todd.....

    The fork on there the lowers have to be magnesium. They look like my first set of racing forks by Rock Shox Mag 20's. 1992 I think it was.

    Guzzis didn’t have coolers for decades prior to incredibly stringent emission requirements. Fuel it correctly, and you don’t need the cooler.

    Thanks and if does incredibly so. Ported heads with opened intake and exhaust makes for a snappy throttle. I’ll post a video soon.
    Nitron sealed cartridge forks are lightweight alloy. Shipped from Japan where the Kashima and TiN (Titanium Nitride) coatings are done. I chose mag colored lowers and nitride black tubes. They have other colors including gold and black lowers and tubes.
    We are dealers for Nitron (Store tab above - though I don’t yet have the forks online, they are available through us).

    Hold on. So you’re saying that my reflashed Breva 1100 with power commander, open air box, y-pipe and GuzziTech muffler can survive without the cooler...............well then, I have a project to complete now. Would you recommend a thermometer dip stick or is that just being paranoid?

    Yes, and the Cal Vin used the B11 motor as well, no oil cooler.
    Do not use an oil temp gauge, not only will they make you paranoid, but they will break in time and drop the dipstick into the pan. Just use common sense as to how it’s running.

    My GTM-01.5 Jackal made it’s Rock Store debut on Sunday. Drew quite a crowd the whole time parked. Still makes me smile after 20 years!

    Bloody Awesome Todd!
    A real credit to you - would make any Guzzi owner smile - it looks spot-On from every angle :p
    Just proves theres impressive oomph to be had from a 2 valve - I still get that smile on my dial when I take my 1100 Sport out.>:)
