Officine Rossopuro Moto Guzzi 1000 SP – “Eroica”

By - November 15th, 2013

While some may feel a little tingle after seeing this latest creation from Filippo Barbacane of Officine Rossopuro, the name of this latest Moto Guzzi 1000SP actually translates to “Heroic.” The inspiration behind the design harkens back to the time that bikes were ridden by our heros, laying out on the bike to get speed with their chins just inches from the tank. All told, its the perfect name for a bike like this, with a streamlined build, including the removal of the instrument panel in place of a single analog instrument integrated into the front headlamp. Its body is painted green to match the new bodywork accented with plenty of beautiful chrome and hand-crafted aluminum. The engine is OG, with only 24,000km on the clock – surprising for a 1982 bike, especially with a great MPG rating. So, what’s the catch? Barbacane originally made this one just for himself, but if you’re interested in trying to pry it from his fingers, contact him via his website with the right figure.
