This 1981 Moto Guzzi Le Mans CX100 was acquired by the seller five years ago and modified as a custom Cafe Racer. It is powered by a 1000cc V-twin coupled to a 5 speed gearbox. It was torn down and rebuilt and now features polished alloy bodywork, clip on handlebars, Tarozzi rearsets, Marzochi shocks, Bitubo fork cartridges, 36mm Dell’Orto carburetors, and Ducati sourced Brembo brakes. The engine has been rebuilt with big valve heads, higher compression pistons, straight cut timing gears, and larger 36MM carbs. Now showing only 475 miles on the rebuild, it is offered with all build receipts and a clear Colorado title. The tank is an alloy replica of the original that the seller discovered under several layers of weathered paint, while the alloy tail section was custom formed by a craftsman in Germany. The seat is upholstered in a carbon fiber print vinyl. The wheels are stock 18″ Le Mans cast alloys. The seller mentions that the frame is painted satin black and was not modified to fit the custom alloy parts. The Le Mans CX100 was a US only model designed to replace the Mk1 850 Le Mans. Introduced in 1979, it used the milder 1000SP engine with a lower 9.2:1 compression ratio. The seller addressed this lack of power by adding higher compression pistons, big valve heads, straight cut timing gears, and replacing the 30mm Dell’Orto carbs with larger 36mm pumper units. Brembo Gold brakes with braided lines were sourced from a Ducati, replacing the original Moto Guzzi linked brakes. The suspension features Bitubo fork cartridges and Marzocchi rear shocks. Other custom touches include Bub ceramic coated Conti replica pipes, Bub high capacity oil pan with an external filter, and Tarozzi rearsets. The headlight bucket was sourced from a 1954 Puch with a veglia speedo and LED warning lights installed. Clip on handlebars with bar end mirrors were added and all of the original Moto Guzzi switch gear retained. All electronics have been relocated and are now hidden under the tank and a new wiring harness was constructed using modern ATC fuses. The odometer shows 475 miles added since the build was completed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzOcaqNIUi0 The seller has provided a walk around video as well as a cold start video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1hvWo62Fr8
