Twenty-twenty hindsight is a truly wonderful thing. It turns drunkards into teetotallers, sleaze bags into prudes and fools into geniuses. But for those of us of a more creative bent, revisiting a previous piece of work without the deadlines and lack of sleep can be a godsend. This second bite of the cherry is rare…
Old motorcycles, while they may look like heaven in the fancy studio shots you’ll often see, can be right little bastards in the flesh. Their exorbitant cost, oil leaks, starting issues and inexplicable breakdowns are enough to challenge even the most even-tempered of riders…
This cool little movie was sent to us by Oscar who is a Pipeburn reader from Barcelona, Spain. Oscar is not quite a professional film maker but he shot this piece as a tribute to the classic motorcycle group he is a member of called Squadra Sutge and has done a damn good job in our humble opinions. At 35 years old he is the youngest member of the group that spends most of their time racing, restoring and riding classic motorcycles. The video was shot at the recent Classic Moto event on the Circuito del Jarama, which is a 3.404 km (2.115 mile) race course in Madrid, Spain. The circuit has hosted nine Formula One Spanish Grand Prix with the last being back in 1981 when it was unfortunately deemed too narrow for modern racing.
The bike on the video ‘cover’ is Oscar’s Ducati Darmah which he has converted to a beautiful 900SS replica. You can check out more pics of the Classic Moto event here.
If you have a Moto Guzzi and live in Europe then you have probably heard of Dynotec in Germany. The word on the street is that these guys are the masters at Guzzi engine modifications and restorations. This high spec Moto Guzzi Cafe Racer is their latest project with Ohlins shocks, Excel Talon Supermoto Wheels and a beautiful electric blue powder coated frame. Would love to give you the full build specs but unfortunately I can’t read ze German… Scheisse! There is loads of great pics on their website showing the whole build process. [Found @ Racing Cafe]
