This 1981 Moto Guzzi CX100 has been highly modified and the result is an eye catcher. It would be easy to call this a restomod, but it’s almost unrecognizable when compared to the original LeMans.
The Daytona bodywork and gauges are a long way from the original and much more sedate LeMans look, but the real modifications are underneath. The front fork is Suzuki GSXR along with Suzuki wheels on both ends, with the Moto Guzzi hub machined and welded to fit the rear wheel so the bike retains the shaft drive. Ohlins provides the rear shocks.
The engine has Raceco ported heads with Dyna ignition sending spark to dual plugs, gear driven Raceco cam, high compression pistons connected to a Falicon crankshaft and a set of Keihin CR 41mm flatslide carbs. Exhaust is a stainless 2 into 1 unit with a carbon fiber muffler. No numbers are cited, but that’s an impressive parts list.
As a Guzzi owner myself, I love the look of this bike, Guzzi engines always stand out and seem to compliment a wide range of body styles. The graphics on the bodywork are not to my taste and look a bit dated, but the overall appearance is top notch. The suspension and performance upgrades make this custom into something totally different than the bike that rolled out of the factory, and overall, this looks like a real deal. Very nicely done! It’s for sale on eBay.
