When the team at WrenchMonkees got their hands on a 1974 Moto Guzzi 850T they immediately started pointing out the bike’s café racer potential and ended up transforming it in their Copenhagen workshop until the overall result was worthy of their standards.
The original 60 horsepower engine and transmission were kept, but the custom motorcycle builder brought in their own rearframe, seat and fender, while the aluminum racing tank was supplied by WBO.
A nice finishing touch is given by the deep green paint and matt black detailing signed by Cay Brøndum and we also must mention that the wiring is entirely hidden from sight, which makes this custom motorcycle both functional and clean looking. Specs after the break.
Looking at the stock Harley-Davidson Sportster XLCH and at what the crew at WrenchMonkees could do with it, you won’t find many differences, but the fact is that this hardtail is now the result of a mix between the HD motorcycle and Husqvarna parts in an attempt to stand out the off-road side of the original machine even more.
The source of around 60 horsepower is a 900cc V-Twin engine supplied with gas by an S&S carburetor, while the megatron dual exhaust is a WM creation. The hardtail rear frame (probably this bike’s most distinctive part) was also built by the Copenhagen-based custom motorcycle builder and together with the Borani style rims with Pirelli rubber, gives a scrambler look to the attractive thing.
What sets this custom further apart from its American DNA is the Husqvarna CR tank with its European style, but also WM components such as the fender, seat, headlight and taillight as well as the custom paint.
The WrenchMonkees Sportster XLCH is priced at just under $21 grand (DKR 105.000). Read the specs after the break.
What you see here is a Honda CB750 Four café racer designed and built by WrenchMonkees, a custom motorcycle company in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The 85 horsepower, inline-four engine was entirely rebuilt, while the wiring, wheels and bearings have been completely replaced. An excellent final touch is given by the custom paint and satin grey finish on the forks, triple clamp and engine covers, while the headlight mesh is a nice thing to have on a bike like this too.
With a listed top speed of 112.5 mph (180 kmph) and a $30,000 (DKR 186.800) price tag, this WrenchMonkees creation shouldn’t stay long on the floors of the Danish Museum of Arts and Crafts and the Rojo Artspace in Barcelona, where it is currently exhibited. Read the specs after the break.
