Moto Guzzi 850 Custom – Sport conversion by Moto Borgotaro

Moto Borotaro started of with a rusty old 1976 Moto Guzzi 850T and worked there magic to produce the Sport Conversion and boy what a motorcycle it is! It’s stunning, so clean and so well put together with the cheeky gold ascent pieces placed perfectly throughout the bike. This has to be the finest example of a Moto Guzzi 850 Custom I’ve ever seen. It’s subtle and understated but it still grabs your attention, the more you look at this bike the more of the beautifully finished details you see.

Starting with a full strip down and clean then off to the powder-coaters for the frame. The motor, front-end and clutch have all been freshly rebuilt and restored to near perfect condition. I love the the updated YSS adjustable rear shocks that Moto Bergotaro have  installed on this bike. Factory rims laced with stainless steel spokes  have been polished up like-new and fitted with fresh Avon Roadrunner tires. The V7 Sport front fender and reproduction tank have been painted battleship gray to complete the bodywork and result in one fine looking Moto Guzzi 850 Custom.

I can’t wait to see what’s next from Moto Borgotaro, there shop is in Brooklyn, NY and specialise in restoring and servicing vintage motorcycles. They said “We are in business because we believe in the value of machines that are designed to last forever, and that a properly maintained vintage motorcycle can be just as fun and reliable to ride as a modern bike—and thoroughly more rewarding to own.” I think I have a thing for Moto Guzzi 850 Custom as I noticed that I have posted alot about them in the past few months.
