Moto Guzzi V10 Centauro Cafe Style

I've become a "Cafe Racer" junkie, just love the bikes they turn out on the show.

I was checking out my un-built bike kits and came across Tamiya's 1/12th Moto Guzzi V10 Centauro kit#14069.

Proceeded to eliminate parts and brackets, made a wooden buck for the tank, seat and fairing. I cast the seat, tank and exhaust pipes in resin. Then vacuum formed the fairing in clear plastic. Fabricated a couple of mirrors and stuck a R&M 1/24th fuel cap on it.

Here's what it ended up looking like:

You did a really good job on this. I'm a cafe style fan too.

Suggestion, on your next one mount the mirrors in the bar ends.

Superb Curt. That first shot could've qualified for "Real or Model?"

Cool bike build of one of the badest bikes around........I say that because if you have ever rode one, you would know what I am talking about. Not this very bike, but the maker. Just received my 1/6th V850 California, now popped by Italeri, was orignally done by Protar.

Kit + ship $300.00, 770 parts, plastic, metal and vinyl........complete working engine, clutch, trans, brakes, levers work what they are attached too. I have built this bike before and it is a very, very demanding project.......but when completed, the center of attention by anyone who spies it. Biggest problem is once they see the brake/clutch levers work, they want too keep fooling with them..... :angry:.

Nice job and I will watch for more of your work.
