Uniquejeans and custom bike celebrate 50th anniversary of Moto Guzzi V7
"In celebration of the50th anniversary of the Moto Guzzi V7 and new Vanguard jeans,we designed a one-off custom bike which bridges between thefirst V7 Guzzi model and the Guzzi bike from today. We changed the stance of thebike and created a slight forward leaning angle for more sexy proportions andracer look.
The design is a bit retro fitted and some details throw you back a coupleof decades. Yet the overall design keeps the connection to thecontemporary donor bike, which gives a feeling of timeless mix.
The custom cafe racer tail section and the "bikini fairing"underlines the racer style with a touch of vintage form language.Furthermore, we integrated keydesign elements of the new Vanguard V7 jeans into thisexceptional bike, such as the special denim blue, quilted leather on theseat matching the leather patch on the jeans and V logo in the rear light, justto mention a few.As a special feature we designed a custom 2-into-1exhaust system with solid roar and it announces the approach of the head turnereven from a distance.
The bike got built by the Wrench Kings with great attention to detail.In essence, the Vanguard Guzzi V7 has a super stylish andclean look with a mix of timeless classic and modern elements, and itfits perfectly to Vanguard Clothing."Wrench Kings -bike built:"After we agreed with the design in collaboration with Gannet Design andVanguard Clothing we started the build. As usual we start the build by cuttingthe rear sub frame, it gets disassembled, lowered and shortened. Than thefitting part starts with the new front fairing and the new rear end.
The tank of the bike is original but, we needed to customize the tank so wecould fit the Monza cap and place the type plates of the bike with the Vanguardlogo and information. As seen in the design of Gannet the rear light with the Vanguard logo is cutout of the rear end, hand crafted.Most of the bolts are blue anodized in the color of the buttons of the V7Vanguard Jeans. The pattern of the seat is also processed in the jeans. Thereare many details and components used in the jeans, which can be found back inthe bike."
