‘75 Moto Guzzi 850T – Cycles

Imagine, if you will, a object that represents the mix of Japanese and Italian culture. do you think that would like? As an obvious starting both nations are formidable and industrial designers, so you’d to expect something that was to within an inch of it’s

Both countries are totally and obsessed with food, so assume that the object show a love for the finer in life. And both have a appreciation of aesthetics, so you’d the thing would look a dollars. No coincidence, then, today’s bike is exactly a … Italianese mash-up takes the best from it’s parents.

Meet Revival’s  ‘75 named ‘Beto’.

“This is a 850t chosen specifically it was the only Guzzi that with the twin-leading rear brake” says Alan Revival’s chief resucitator. made it the least desirable 850 at the time it was made, but the best for the parts stash I had in the shop to what is ostensibly my personal bike; specifically the authentic OEM TZ front dual twin-leading or four-leading shoe drum that I’d been … to put on a little different. The brake the entire build.”

“A long-time friend who is loyal to commissioned the build and trusted our scheme with the drum off we went. We found a donor in Tennessee that was in pieces, but a title.

We immediately decided to add an 2007 Suzuki GSXR front fork to the drum brake, fully this illogical combination be ludicrous to most, but utterly in its intention to combine the best of the period this bike was during and some of the finest technology of modern machines. challenge alone was a complicated Using the factory Suzuki front axle was a problem required us to machine the factory hub to fit and sourcing of super thin bearings to accommodate it all safely.”

“We then heavily gusseted the frame, the lower frame rail, gusseted the added an Ohlins rear shock and Then we completed shaved and cut the rear Guzzi twin-leading drum to match the

We then decided that a one-off integrated unibody alloy tank, and tail would lead the cues and the rest just of followed from there.

So much love went this bike and it’s great to be able to say that the powder-coating and leather seat was elsewhere, the rest is all us.

“This was not only build to look it was built to perform. We recently it to Jay Leno’s Garage and after Jay rode it he that it was by far the best handling and ever ridden. It stops on a and it carves corners with the of them.

It’s been over a thousand miles now and ready for many more.

There’s an LED alloy with hand-formed headlight and brackets. We’ve also got a and M-lock which replacing all and fuses, one-off gullwing style alloy an integrated gas tank, seat and and a dropped lower frame

“There’s one-off pegs, and braking system, a one-off exhaust with CNC-machined header and (you guessed it) a one-off CNC-machined cut frame tie-plate. All cables and the was handmade and there’s a hidden LED system. We also polished and everything.  Oh, and the handmade by Ginger at New Church Moto.”
