Moto Guzzi V75 Corsaiola, Remade in Italy [Photo Gallery]
Corsaiola, for this is the name of the remade V75, took home a trophy last month, at the Biker Fest, BikeEXIF tells us. Small wonder, anyway, as this is one of the tidiest and most noble V75s we saw in quite a while!
The '89 V75 was among the forefathers of the current V7 Guzzi family, but back then the bike was loaded with plastic panels which - let's face it – looked horrible. A skilled Photoshop and CAD user, Stefano Venier stripped the old V75 to the bare frame and started re-building it according to his vision, with a custom rear chassis, a hand-fabricated tank, new fenders and side panels.
A new seat was also made to follow the new, immaculate lines of the bike, furthermore enhanced by the elegant Mistral exhausts. The engine received a complete overhauling and a light silver paint job, while the polished wheels and the frame got a flat black finish for a perfect contrast with the few chrome accents and the white tank.
The Venier Corsaiola is as clean as it gets and a wonderful example of old motorcycle building restored to greater glory.
