Created from a 1981 Moto Guzzi Lemans mk2, we present the Airtail.

The entire motorcycle, engine and gearbox was completely disassembled and vapour blasted prior to a forensic inspection of all original parts.

The original instrumentation has been completely restored and housed in a bespoke dash, incorporating 1940 Merlin Spitfire aviation warning lights and main switch.

The frame has been delugged & Airtailed - an idea proposed by the client - to provide a refined minimalism, ensuring all electrical components are hidden from view. The completed 950cc engine features a polished, lightened and balanced crankshaft, in-house gas flowed cylinder heads and and all new valves. The motor now breathes through a pair of 40mm Dellorto carbs with accelerator pumps. A lightweight R.A.M. clutch and flywheel were also installed.

On the bars, drastically reduced switchgear is made possible with our in-house custom loom utilising an M-Unit control box.

Precision paintwork is in Italian Red gloss and a satin finish Old English white, with a hand painted Moto Guzzi logo.
