My favourite pic of a girl on a bike ever (or perhaps the only one, most others tend to look cheesy). When I first saw it, I thought she was an actual rider but turns out she’s just a model like most any girl-on-a -bike-photos. Apparently the guy who built the bike ended up making a replica for none other than Ewan McGregor.
The said Zagato Guzzi is my take on the Brit style cafe racer but with MORE SPEED & MORE RELIABILITY !
Im not a pro bike builder per say, but ended up building a replica for Ewan McGreggor of Trainspotting & Star Wars fame. My bike has been built funding & time permitting over the the past 14 years of ownership with one-off, second hand/vintage, + a few High tech bits.- I actually started with a complete SP100, but there's nearly nothing of the original bike left.
The oil filler- as you will appreciate, is to combat very user-unfriendly original hiding place, is made using a Kawasaki oil filler cap that uses its original thread in a new threaded tube welded into the rocker cover . I first tried a non-screwing Harley (rubber bung) oil tank chrome cap , but it kept coming loose. Then I looked into making up one from scrtach, but this much more simple & has a fin (so you can un-do it by hand) that matches those of the cover. The German Guzzi parts SteinDinse do one too.
OB1 was built in a year using new parts & much more money ! OB2 is the bike Im working on now
