Moto Guzzi 1000SP


Posted on December 11th, by Scott in Café Racer. 10 comments

If you remember what the original 1000SP looked like then you’ll appreciate the hours of work that have gone into transforming this Guzzi into a work of art. Built by Italian Filippo Barbacane from Officine Rossopuro who spent 4 months creating this bike he calls the TTre. Filippo and Officine Rossopuro have become synonymous with creating some of the best looking Moto Guzzi’s in the world.

The first thing that had to go was the original bulky fairing – which even wrapped around the 60 hp air-cooled 948cc v-twin motor. Some of the other work included adding 45 mm Tarozzi handlebars, cone-shaped exhaust from Megaton, Marzocchi front fork, Brembo brakes and the rear suspension is made from two Asatek springs. The well-proportioned tank and seat have been custom made by Officine Rossopuro – creating some aesthetically pleasing lines. Lastly, the bike was finished in a classic cream and brown paint job by Carrozzeria Melideo.

    Beautiful job! Love the unusual tank and paint. It could use another 20 horsepower to go with the smokin good looks.

    Beautifully done – not controversial at all(!) compared to the "top ten?"

    Indeed a special tank.

    There is something slightly wrong with the stance IMHO. It leans too much backwards, as if the shocks are shot. It should have been a little higher at the back. Very nice otherwise.

    Agreed, that's a handsome little demon. I wouldn't kick it out of the garage.

    Looks like the odometer shows 85000+ km… certainly not since this rebuild. Original instrument?

    I've never owned a cafe style bike, but this one makes me want to build one. Pure class.
