Return of the Cafe Racers - Tricana Moto Guzzi Cafe Racer

Tricana Moto Guzzi Cafe Racer

Customised Moto Guzzi’s never fail to draw a crowd. This Guzzi Cafe Racers brown flake tank, suede-covered saddle and the perfect balance of satin black and polished alloy guarantee it’s going to spend the rest of its life being the centre of attention.

Based in Coimbra, Portugal,  Tricana Motorcycles is the new kid on the custom motorcycle block. Company owner Jonathan Natario has exploded onto the custom scene with his first Tricana Motorcycles branded Moto Guzzi Cafe Racer. The bike has been popping up all over the web but as yet there’s no website to send you to for more details (hopefully it’s coming soon).

The Guzzi has been stripped back to the bare essentials and its profile has been flattened out to give it a much lower looking stance without reducing its knee down cornering ability. The brown flake paint scheme is an interesting colour selection that will generate some mixed opinions but it shows that Jonathan is a builder who isn’t about to follow any rules. It’s because of this that I’m sure we are going to see some great custom creations rolling out of Tricana’s workshop.
