  1. Ciao Guest, Happy 2019! Note all of our products and custom bike builds are now on our sister site; GTMotoCycles.com. You may need a new username and password to get into the new GTM Store system - pending and past order info is available there. NOTE: We are not Amazon, we are a tiny one man operation. Thanks for your patience on orders. GuzziTech is now back to our origins; Enjoy the Guzzi Community Forum and Resources here. There is zero tolerance on personal attacks and off-site links to other Forums or competing products. Note there's decades of Guzzi hands-on experienced help on this site, all whom give endless amounts of their time for free - be courteous. For those who are new here, the owner of this site (Todd - GT-Rx®) has been immersed in Guzzis since 1999. He's raced and wrenched for two-thirds of his life, both Pro dirt-track and road-race, and contributed to Cycle World Magazine from 2000 until 2007. He began Guzzi dyno performance modifying and fuel tuning in 2001, and has been wrenching them full time since 2007. His GT MotoCycles workshop has been open for ~4 years in Orange, CA. We do not have a phone number for this site or GTM, we're online only... do not ask us to call you.

    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.
