The stock model Moto Guzzi V7 Stone is actually a rather good motorcycle, it weighs in at a fairly light 179kgs and that v-twin produces 50hp and 42.7 ft lbs of torque.
Nick Huber is a talented chap, we’ve featured his work on Silodrome before with a story on his beautiful Ducati 900 GTS a few months ago and so it was with great interest that I opened an email from Nick last week containing pictures of his newest creation, a Moto Guzzi in the spirit of the early ’70s Moto Guzzi V7 Sport.
This Moto Guzzi Mark 1 Le Mans was featured on Silodrome last year, after discovering that the bike was now up for sale on eBay (via Pipeburn), we decided to feature it again for all those who might have missed it the first time, and for all those who might want to sell the Prius and buy it.
Kaffeemaschine is probably the single best Moto Guzzi custom garage in the world today, it’s run by a talented chap by the name of Axel Budde, a native of Hamburg.
The Moto Guzzi V7 Racer is, in some respects, a testament to Moto Guzzi’s history. It’s based on the Moto Guzzi V7 Sport from the 1970’s although the design and styling queues of the modern bike make it’s heritage glaringly obvious to any long time fan of the brand.

Moto Guzzi produce some of the most café racer friendly motorcycles in the world today, this Guzzi, built by Kaffee Maschine, looks almost like an official concept motorcycle with the level of precision and remarkable fit and finish employed throughout its design. The bike is based on a Moto Guzzi Le Mans 3 and has…
Luca Bar is the head designer at BAR Design, he is well known for producing stunning and unique motorcycle designs, largely based on pre-existing models from various manufacturers. His work with the V7 Moto Guzzi is greatly appealing to me, it seems to blend just the right amount of retro with more than enough modern engineering to keep even hard core super bike fiends happy.
Filippo Barbacane of Officine RossoPuro is one of the top (non-chopper) bike builders in the world today, his work with Moto Guzzi bikes runs that slim line between functional motorcycle and modern art and this bike “Ottanta” is no exception.
