The Moto Guzzi V7 Cafe Racer - We recently completed a light cosmetic overhaul of Carl’s V7. The key modification is the ‘plug and play’ Spirit seat unit and undertray/mudguard which retains the usability of a standard seat unit. Credit to D-Luck’s for the paint and Glenn Moger for the upholstery. Here’s Carl’s thoughts;
"Following my purchase of the Moto Guzzi V7 Racer back in 2010 and a couple of 1000 miles later I decided it was time to put my own mark on the stock bike.
After many hours of research I came across Spirit and made a call to their HQ to discuss my initial thoughts with Tim who straight away understood the vision and the look I was after. A couple of days following the bikes arrival at HQ Tim provided a schedule of suggested works with an individual pricing structure which allowed me to work within a budget and consider additional ideas from their experience and expertise.
Once work commenced I received regular updates direct and even played a part in the seat design although it was heavily influenced by Kevin’s artwork which really helped with making critical final decisions.
The bike is now back in my possession and looks absolutely jaw dropping with the new aggressive stance following Spirits bespoke seat unit which retains the factory release system, redesigned front and rear indicators, special paintwork , a one off custom seat , powder coated parts etc. I still go in the garage with a cuppa and just stare at it !
If you are looking for something totally unique or fancy some subtle changes to your current ride I would highly recommend Spirit, not only for their quality of work and my personal world class customer service but these guys understand bikes and deal with each concept with real passion as if it was their own.
Thanks again guys and all the very best for the future.
A very happy customer.”
