Black and White Moto Guzzi Le Mans 3
What's black and white and bad ass all over? Take a look at this killer build from Moto Guzzi specialists, HT Moto in Germany. HT Moto aren't the kind of workshop to do anything in halves. There's not much on this '82 Moto Guzzi Le Mans III they haven't tweaked, replaced or…
With 30 years of experience working with Moto Guzzi’s Hartmut Taborsky of HT Moto knows his way around the Le Mans platform. HT have also been active in the race scene for many years so performance is a big part of every build that rolls out of their workshop. The ’82 Le Mans 3 arrived at HT Moto with an incredibly low 6000kms on the clock, but that wasn’t about to save it from a full tear down.
A balanced and lightened crank was installed along with an HT Moto 2 spark per cylinder set up, ensuring maximum fuel combustion. A 92mm bore increases the Guzzi’s power output to 90bhp at 7600 rpm with an 11.0/1 compression ratio. 40mm Dell’Orto carbs with velocity stacks feed fuel into the cylinders and exhausts are expelled via a custom made HT Moto stainless steel system. To handle the extra power bigger valves, springs, cam and a specially modified clutch and flywheel were also added to the Black & White.
