    So thrilled with how it turned out. Both in looks and function.

    From the perspective of inspiration you nailed it.

    The bike looks amazing! The only thing that is bugging me a little bit is the rear light placement. It reminds me of Porsche's placement of mandatory "Dole lights" on 911s when the brake lights were mandated by the DOT back in 85 or whenever. They had them mounted in all sorts of weird places especially on the cabrios-
    I absolutely love the color of the tank. It is perfect. The seat might accent that color better in a super super dark matte grey- the brown doesn't really work with the rest of the palette to my eye- but that's personal preference and no one ever accused me of having perfect aesthetic sensibilities!

    Chapeau Todd! Well done.

    Thanks! I chose the Ferrari-esque LED light and placement based on the style of the light, and the fact that all of the tail lights were simply bolted to the sheet metal of that era, and in the end, a nod to below.
    As to seat color, I tried one other light tan (posted earlier in this thread), and was very unhappy with it. I considered the Ron Burgundy (bottom image), but settled on the middle image after considering using alcantara suede. My seat maker is also a horse saddler, so I went with the construction and color of the most popular used. It is impressively good in person as everyone comments on it. ;)

    Looks like your custom shaping the exhaust pipe tips.

    As I've been known to do for decades. ;)
    Already resolved.

    Hi Todd, by exchanging the old shorter twin shock swing arm for the longer CARC version does the front to rear wieght bias change noticeably?

    My Jackal had the longer swingarm on it, so next I have a C11 in the shop, I’ll measure and weigh both with my dual axle scales. My bet is no.

    Thanks for the reply, and out of all the Guzzi's produced this type would have to be my favourite!

    Maybe next year!

    I love it, but would not be able to license it here in Canada, not that I can afford it at the moment anyway.
    Does not look like there are any front or rear turn signals. So not road legal.

    Thanks Scott! I'm impressed with it too. She's a strong runner as well.
    Wait until you see what we're building in the shop right now to show; Mind-blowing-ly good, and painfully expensive, but will be fun to look & hear (and ride of course)!

    Yes, a few things about my builds that may make them tough to own for some. It has front and rear turns (mPins), which aren't seen until turned on (either side of the headlight and rear plate), then they are incredibly bright.

    :clap:
    My heart pounds just thinking about it! If I am correct, the word “super-charger” comes to mind. If so, I’m dying to see it and hear it!

    Please oh please oh please! :clap: :D :clap:

    I figured you did have something installed. i just know that up here in BC, Canada, our insurance/registry monopoly makes it crazy tough to register anything that is not normal. I actually ended up giving away a 2 stroke 197? Minsk motorcycle as they would not even inspect it to see about registry. No chance at all.

    Based on current flow data, below is the projected numbers for the 1151cc motor, and the 1380cc motor will follow.
    Red is HP, blue is torque. Units on left would be hp and lb.ft., bottom is RPM
