    The next step was marrying the shock mounts. Check. Next up, frame tubes to join all and hang the tank. They will go around the Rotrex Superch-urbo.

    A little more progress to show (for those not watching our landing page)... our fully custom hand-built frame will be the foundation of all of our builds. A little Tonti, a little loop, a little Spine and a little CARC.
    It can be fitted with any CARC motor (1100, 1200 8V or our big bore 1380 8V), and can utilize the stock alternator or Rotrex blower option. More as we go.

    My X-Fire exhaust has a nice snarl and bark. Build GTM-01 : 1380cc/425 lbs/140+ rwhp - the bike is far from finished, but getting close. The correct tank and custom seat to come. I will be doing a big unveil soon.



    Comments on my attire will be deleted. I don’t need lectured on gear as I am not riding; I’m in a parking lot.

    Like the way you think Todd
    nice marriage of tonti frame heritage and "modern" Guzzi engine and all.
    I've had a few round barrels 750 , 850 , 1000 , V50's and now the 2005 Breva.
    The breva does fantastic job of taking me and the missus across australia. but its "heavy" "soft" and "tall" for someone with ducks disease.
    I love my Breva 1100 - but have often wished it was all in a tonti style frame. ... I guess frame kits may be on the radar too ? cos that is something i'd love to do , and if i can lose 50 lbs or more in the process ? - the bike not me !
    Guzzi should be both light weight and go like stink !

    Thanks. The old Tonti is such a smile maker with that low CG, and the old bikes were pretty light too.
    I’m with you on the CARC bikes, acceptable but portly.
    If I offer frames, it would be many years down the road, as I hope to sell as many complete bikes as I can build for now.

    Anticipation sucks. That's what they really say.

    I can't get over the finished look of the products you put out Todd. Your attention to detail is exceptional. I look at a lot of the customs that come out of other shops and they often fall short in fit and finish or performance, or they are awkward or uncomfortable looking. The 2 into 1 pipe I bought from you was a work of art. All curves and bulges in satin stainless. I remember you talking about the prototype having the wrong angles. It didn't perform any different, it just didn't please your eye. I guess maybe that's something you have picked up from working with Italian design all these years. Beautiful, elegant form that translates easily into performance. You have the eye of an artist and the mind of an engineer. A rare combination these days.
