  2. Ciao Guest, ALERT FOR Store purchases - riding season is here, so we know everyone wants it yesterday. However, lead times are long and many things are sold out or back-ordered, and there isn't much we can do to rush anything. Always best to buy off Season when things are in stock. Also, there are many seasonal holidays this time of year, both here and in Europe (particularly the Italian August Holiday month), so please be patient! We aren't Amazon. We do our best to get things out as quickly as possible, and we also aren't in control of things like customs & weather delays, etc. Please note GuzziTech and the GTM Store is largely a ONE man operation. Requests for phone calls will be deleted. We are online only. Orders are currently being shipped once or twice a week. You can always sign into the online Store system to check the status.

    Hey Todd, I'm VERY interested. Unfortunately the powers-that-be haven't given me winning lottery ticket numbers. and the Nigerian prince isn't returning my calls.

    Seriously though, the GTM builds look truly stunning, and the performance, sounds, etc, on the video's ..... If I had the money I would definitely be knocking at your door.

    I have no voice left from an incredibly fun and busy day at the Quail Moto Gathering in Carmel Valley yesterday. Fun catching up with so many new (to me) Guzzi riders and long time friends.

    To add it to one of builds when the donor has it, very little. To add it to one that doesn't have it, very.

    We just started our next transformation. Breva 1100 less ~100 lbs and ~2” lower cg = GTM-02.4. Will be for sale.

    Would love to see a time lapse of such a transformation.

    Unbelievable, awesome and beautiful. Todd, does it make sense to use the California engine as a basis for a build or just the 8V?

    Grazie. I can use the Cal 1400 motor (which is a 8V), but it's the gearbox and swing-arm/CARC drive/all related that is critical to these builds.

    " I can use the Cal 1400 motor (which is a 8V)..."

    Ha ha, I would have gotten a big surprise pulling the valve covers to adjust. (I don't know why I was thinking it's 4V). Anyway I've often looked at the beautiful engine/drivetrain on my Eldorado and imagined what a really stripped-down, minimalist version of the bike would be like. Your builds are similar to what I see in my mind's eye, so I was wondering.

    8V in Italia-speak is Quattrovalvole, or 4-valves per cylinder (8-Valves in total - don't ask I say). Your 1400 is the same as the 1200 (1151cc) 4V (x2 = 8V) motors. I agree on your thoughts/vision. Imagine your motor in a 400 lb machine. That is essentially GTM-01, but with cams and enlarged twin throttle bodies. Any "CARC Guzzi" 1100 or 1200-2V, or any 1200-4V (8V) will work as a donor.

    I should have said, I thought my 1400 was 2 vales per cylinder for some reason. Anyway, point taken on CARC. It's a nice looking system but I haven't experienced it yet. Almost bought a Griso, but alas. But your bikes take it to a new level. Even 100 hp in a 400 lb package would work for me :)
