We’ve recently been introduced to what we’ve come to consider one of the coolest café racers to lately arrive on the custom motorcycle scene. Originally a Moto Guzzi 1000 SP powered by a 60 hp air-cooled 948cc v-twin motor, this bike is now a veritable café racer, but still reminiscent of the late ‘70s, early ‘80s period.
Built in four months by Filippo Barbacane of Officine RossoPuro, this 1000 SP is now a better bike from all points of view: its aggressive new stance with the Tarozzi bars and foot controls make it an eye-catcher wherever you ride and the engine gets Le Mans 1000 cylinder heads and custom Officine RossoPuro exhaust system for a sportier sound and more power. Also, the suspension have been redone and the when it comes to the braking system, it all comes down to the custom Officine RossoPuro brake rotors and Brembo calipers.
The sad part about this Moto Guzzi 1000 SP café racer is the fact that only one has been built so far and it found itself a good home at Mario Natale in Belgium, but two other such machines are in the works, so go to Officine RossoPuro for yours.
