    Our friend Fred dropped off his Radical Guzzi carb’ed 1400 Tonti for service and fitting a new handbuilt aluminum tank.

    That's a wicked looking bike. Must have cost a small fortune. Any performance figures?

    Yea it looks nice but I would much rather have the one Todd is building. It’s a whole lot better bike.

    I don’t want to denigrate Radical Guzzi’s build, it is a unique bike but looking at what Todd is putting together there is no comparison. Todd’s build has a braced Tonti frame with a single sided carc rear wheel with 6 speed transmission. It’s also my understanding that Radical does not balance the crankshaft to match the larger pistons so the motor is not going to be as smooth. If that’s not the case then I stand corrected. You would really need to see Todd’s build in person to appreciate the attention to detail. It is a work of art. I wish I could afford to buy this first build. It’s going to be a unique monster.
