Moto Guzzi O2

Marco Matteucci is a photographer and graphic designer, he is also a motorbike enthusiast and for the last three years has been on a motorcycle building adventure from his Workshop in Italy. This beautiful masterpiece started as a Tonti framed Moto Guzzi V35 TT from 1985, but was stripped to its bare essentials, cleaned and lovingly fitted with bespoke details such as a chopped rear end, wafer-like mudguards, a short exhaust, a stylish hand crafted leather saddle that hides the less aesthetically pleasing wiring and battery, and a tail light incorporated into the seat. Black powdered wheels and elegantly sized knobbly tyres add a whiff of mean to the baby blue color scheme.
