Guzzi's SHOCKING MPH!
Ben & Eric Bostrom Bros take this Guzzi for a surprising ride.
The Cafe Racer TV "Guzzi Build" starts with Big Beefy forks.
....the "Before Shot" T3 GUZZI Build
"My modest beginnings are like most...a dirt bike, into 80's MOD scooter scene with 50/60's Italian motor scooter...then a need to go faster and farther...hence motorcycles.
My background in Photography / ART&DESIGN has helped me see that I can be more than just "the photographer" that rode a motorcycle to the studio. I have been in several movies, magazines, and TV. I've had the privilege to work with the late photographer Robert Cameron. He showed the world to look "ABOVE" for the answers with his series of photographic books. You must work hard for people to see the art of life...this includes the craft of motorcycles, and living in the now.
I used to be only known for my photographic career, but through motorcycles I found a direct connection to my clients needs and vision.
I LOVE to make my friends "bucket list" come true. Therefore I found a new education. Years of frustrations with motorcycle shops, machinist, painters, plating, parts, etc... always working on a budget.
I forced myself to learn more about how to turn wrenches & wheels. In-turn I contracted "The Disease" as I call it...early on from 12 years of age. I continue to photograph as I always will, and still love riding.
"Cafe Racers", European Motors, Customs, Brits, Italian Scooters, "Rat Bikes", American Classics, and ALL things vintage, yes,... and my love of Porsche Cars... you name it!
Inspired only by people who had already done it!
"There is NO monetary gain in something you love."
This is my life, and has been a passion for over 30 years. It's hard to believe that it's been this long...but, can't wait for the day to ride "cleanly" through a corner with my son Liam, and now expected baby girl (THANKS to my beautiful wife ALISSA ...I LOVE YOU). I'm giving my best, and I want riders to experience some of the fun I've had... Vintage Motorcycles and ART are the CONCRETE foundation."

*Grrrr Cover - City Bike Magazine: I know, I did the pose as a joke...and it's GreyDog Moto not Gray. I'm no tough guy, I assure you..
Must they make these "new" bikes so complicated?
OTHER CAFE RACERS
(Other builders who have done excellent jobs! I'm a big fan...)
This 1969 BSA Rocket 3 cafe racer is at least as fast as it looks.
CAFE RACERS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE UNIQUE
The entire concept of the cafe racer started out as a very personalized, totally unique, hand-built motorcycle that expressed the owners' own tastes. Strangely, most classic British cafe racers are Triumph motorcycles and/or Norton motorcycles. Not so strange, I suppose, when you consider that Triumphs were by far the most common & widespread of all classic British motorcycles; and Nortons just begged to be 'cafed'. In fact, Norton built some of the first factory cafe racers. But if you want to talk
Triumph cafe racers,
or Norton cafe racers,
we have other pages for that. This section is devoted to all Classic British Cafe Racers that AREN'T Triumphs or Nortons. Which makes them even more unique. Enjoy....
1970 EGLI-VINCENT CAFE RACER
This drop-dead-gorgeous Egli-Vincent is actually an all-new replica in an original 1970 Egli frame, and thus titled as a 1970. The engine is brand-new & tuned to Black Shadow specs. Menani hubs front & rear (the front is a 2-sided TLS unit). WOW!!.

1969 BSA ROCKET 3 CAFE RACER
This awesome 1969 BSA Rocket 3 cafe racer is one of the best put-together custom bikes I've seen. First class all the way. The engine has been breathed on by Charlie Barnes of Triple Tecs & is just about as full-race as you can take on the streets. Over 7 pounds was removed from the crankshaft alone, before being rebalanced. It also has a 5-speed gearbox. Lots of subtle polished brass accents, including screws & bolts, even the chain!
