Tell us about your bike

We are proud to present our 1981 Moto Guzzi Le Mans 3 « La Monica »

This is my personal bike that i have decided to completely modify into a one of a kind cafe racer style bike.

The goal was to do something that has never been seen before but stay in a sort of classical cafe racer look.

Everything started with the research of some interesting tail lights that are not mounted on all the bike you can see everywhere.

As i love vintage cars i started looking around in what could be found and usable on a motorcycle.

When i saw these 1959 Cadillac replica taillights a knew straight away that those where what i was looking for!

The whole design of the bike was based on these lights. I tried to marry Italian class with a spirit of vintage American cars and vintage cafe racer racing spirit.

All modifications and work have been done at the shop except the triple treas made by a friend and the seat made by « skinnass custom leather ».

We decided to call it “La Monica” because we have a thing going on with all our friends that always give women names to their motorcycles. Since this is a beautiful and “sexy” Italian bike the first name that came to me was Monica as “Monica Bellucci”.
