Moto Guzzi Le Mans 1

"Born from hell and love." 

The Moto Guzzi Le Mans 1 by Moto Borgotaro. Here's a close up and personal interview with builder Peter Boggia about the development of this bike thanks to the crew at Union Garage in NYC. Sit back and watch while Peter explains his design approach and some of the custom work done to bring the Guzzi up to a modern standard of technology and performance. A well thought out, extensive build and a great piece of film work...

"This seven-minute short follows the build-out of what Boggia calls his finest work, a recently released Moto Guzzi LeMans dubbed “Apollonia.” In doing so we get some insight into Boggia’s design influence and his deep-seated love for 70s era motorcycles and trashy Italian cinema. And the veteran mechanic’s salty and sincere personality shines through, too." - Union Garage

"Strip away as much as possible, leave it in it's barest form and let the design speak for itself. Everything else is just silly. What should be looked at the form of the bike."
