Recast’s Blacked-Out Moto Guzzi California 1100 Is One Mean Machine

Belarus’ Recast Moto are no strangers to the custom motorcycle industry, creating a handful of highly-lauded bikes that catch the attention of any enthusiast worth their salt. Following hot on the heels of the company’s revered Moto Guzzi Nevada 750 build, which was unveiled in 2017, the bespoke bike builder is back with an updated platform called the California 1100 — a more robust version of its smaller brother.

The Moto Guzzi California 1100 touches on a variety of the 750’s shortcomings, including its size — which was too small to support a number of the riders inquiring about the bike. To remedy this, Recast has implemented a larger base and engine, alongside a modified rear tail section, rear shock absorbers, and a shortened front fork for a more aggressive orientation. Hidden electrical and fuel components have been tucked underneath the cycle’s requisitioned CB750K gas tank, working alongside a pair of hand-made front and rear flaps, Hendenau K60 tires, and gold titanium nitride peripherals to bring the California a seamless look, overall. You can buy this bad boy for yourself if you’ve got $20,300 to spare.
