Moto Guzzi V9 Scrambler by Moto Studio

Moto Sutdio's V9 Pro Build Moto Studio’s Bruce McQuiston is normally a café racer type of guy. But his hometown of Miami is not really built for café racer living; the roads are less than perfect, and the traffic is dense.

Moto Guzzi Airtail Cafe Racer by Death Machines of London

Repurposing a 1981 LeMans MK2 Death Machines of London, you say? The founders of DMOL feel it should be fairly obvious what they do (hint: its custom motorcycles).

by GT MotoCycles
