Guzzi Le Mans 1100 Cafe

The phenomenon of the cafe racer, in the true sense of definition, is a bit lowered and motorcycle enthusiasts who do not follow the fashions of the moment are turning to motorcycles with a strong character that give great satisfaction to driving.

This Guzzi Le Mans comes from a Franck ROUSSIN our reader who offers us his special, where the main objective is to improve the starting point  by taking inspiration from Guzzi di Ghezzi, a specialist on twin cylinders from Mandello
