Sweet .. love the rear-sets and swept pipes. If it were me, I think I'd have dropped the clip-ons a bit lower into the fairing cutaways ...
I used to love caff racers when I was a lad :) Had a DBD34 for a while but no room for the girlies on the bucket seat ... it had to go ...
BTW - Goldie pattern silencers make a really fine noise on a big thumper like a 500 single or a 1200 twin :)

the clipons are bit higher for little more comfort. the seat is compromise between cafe racer style, and dual seat option to take the bitch, erm wife for a ride :P
pipes are "normal' lafrancoini's and widely used for guzzi. loud and good :P. ow, i never use aircleaners on my nikes, i rather chance pistons than airfliters every 15 thou km.

thank you all. i always drove italian bikes. mostly ducati though. but this on, engine aint realy stock, 1000cc cilinders, tuned heads, bigger valves, 40mm dell orto's. lightweight flywheel and crank. high compression pistons and titanium rods. it goes like hell with a shitload of torque and power. and than the only downside of the guzzi design comes in. if you open throttle, the bike makes a weird twist sideways wich is something to get used to. :o
