Simpatico is fitted with a 500w brushless rear hub,with a 36v battery. All electrics are hidden inside the tank.
A modern day version of a Moto Guzzi motoleggera 65 1946-1954.
I purchased and mounted the original forks to a Guzzino.

Tank etc is all made from fiberglass,a little etching going on also.

Build thread is here.

I seem to be having issues with the internet etc. Some photos are loading starange and internet keeps cutting out.
Last 4 days I have just been rushing to finish by the deadline.

Hope to add more of what has been done on this build.

:bigsmile: I only have piles of stuff to work with... No choice. You always have to think outside the bike with parts ideas etc... But on the downside is,you can't walk past some trash or a row at the hardware,thinking what can I do with that.:crazy2:
I believe it is a illness:21:
It is now way to expensive to ship bikes etc from USA now.

I know what you mean In Canada we don't have a lot of the cool stuff thats in the States either and shipping is expensive here as well .
Not a lot of double bar stuff I'm mostly building English style 28 inch 700C pathracer stuff with fat tires .
I've never entered anything with an American built frame just too hard to get your hands on one.

If it's an illness don't get better :thumbsup:

I did manage to get a higgins and my 39 hawthorne over when shipping was real.
It's time to get the higgins up and running.

It certainly does,we work on seasonal work here,so summer is hectic.
So now that the voting is open to what ever you feel like,it's the same as the winter build,so hopefully temps and rain stay mild to build. But saying that we have had a huge temp drop,feels like Autumn here...
Killer bike G-Matt,a sweet ride...

Not here still in the 90s
Killer job on your bike as well . We had a close running race together. It was back and forth . I thought you had me at the end . You kept getting votes & I got none at all on the last day . Some how I held on to
3rd congratulations on your 4 place finish.
