    A new California 1400 motor in a cafe racer setup with serious forks and wheels and check out that HUGE flipped-back-under-the-bike exhaust!

    Oh yeah Baby! I want one, badly!!! :clap::):happy:

    If anybody knows of any other pics of this sweet toy, please share!

    Wait just a minute... Todd, is that you? LOL

    That thing is freaking gnarly! With Todd's airbox, exhaust, and fueling mods it'd probably be wicked quick.

    Hey Scott, funny, yes... that's our friend Stephan of Radical Guzzi. I am in the early process of building my own version with the CARC system/monoshock. I'm merging a BB Tonti frame to a CARC rear end (ala Bellagio)... largely because the Tonti frame is super light and strong, and my abused back won't allow twin shocks any more, no matter how much money I throw at it.
    I have a 1380cc 8V motor with a custom cam already built sitting on the bench, ready to go. First build is normally aspirated, second will have a supercharger/kompressor.
    Plan is to build them to sell, in a AMG fashion of pick what options and colors, etc.

    I'm going to have to make a sign and hang it on my garage wall that says, "All my mad money went to Todd..." LOL

    "in a AMG fashion" - Ha! In my dreams. Champagne taste on a beer budget... But I will love to see the progress!

    I do love this custom build, only for me, I'd have to change to classic wire spoke wheels or at least, a really awesome set of alloy wheels. Those solid frisbee wheels just suck. I always hated the Fatboy wheels like that.

    Yes, my wheel option list will be Kineo tubeless spokes, Marchesini forged or BST carbon.

    Me too! I've always wanted to be able to custom create my dream hooligan bike like this one above. If things go well economically over the next year or so, I just may be putting Todd to task! Hope springs eternal.
