Moto Guzzi Le Mans cafe racer

1984 Moto Guzzi Le Mans III cafe racer
This is one of the coolest cafe racers we’ve ever seen, period. It’s a 1984 Le Mans III that was extensively rebuilt in 2005 with new cams and upgraded Dell’Orto carbs. The headlight is from a 1938 BMW R71, the valve covers are from a 1967 V7 Sport, the knee guards are from a 1973 LAPD bike, and the gas tank is from a Mk 1 Le Mans. There are Tommaselli parts all over the place, including fully adjustable clip-ons and control levers, plus an Agostini rearset and a Lucas replica tail light. The lucky owner of this motorcycle is a designer called Nir Kohav, and there are more Peter Z Jones images and full specs of his bike here. Yes, we’re green with envy.

    One item for correction regarding the Moto Guzzi. The valve covers are from a V700, not a V7 Sport. The Sport was not manufactured until 1971. I do agree they are beautiful covers and very different from the later models.

    Stunning bike! Very delicious details, especially that seat! What is its manufacturer? Or is it custom?
    Cheers!
