This Beautiful Chromed Cafe Racer Was Once A Wrecked Moto Guzzi 1000SP

When it comes to crafting a custom motorcycle, many builders will seek out something that’s free of too much complication in order to simplify their workflow. That being said, when someone does decide to save a bike from the scrapyard, the results often speak for themselves.

Take this 1981 Moto Guzzi 1000SP by France’s Shiny Hammer for example. Prior to customization, it was little more than a write-off wreck, with its frame out of alignment and its front wheel in the engine. Now, however, it’s a stunning chrome cafe racer boasting some seriously impressive metalwork. Up front, it features a hand-built fairing and tank that are perfectly proportioned to the rest of the build. Complemented by a Peugeot Ludix scooter headlight, a set of lowered forks, and some completely hidden cable routing, it makes for an incredibly clean cockpit. Elsewhere, you’ll find further custom details, such as a swooping front fender and short truncated tail. While they’re a bit unconventional, they look perfectly at home in this application. Top it off with a set of 36mm Dell’Orto carbs and some stainless steel exhaust, and you have a bike with one hell of a survivor story. Click the link below for more.
