Hamburg-based workshop Kaffee Maschine has created the custom motorcycle the ‘KM”17, b ased upon the classic moto guzzi ‘Le Mans MKiii′, that is hand-made bodywork with a vintage ‘Jaguar’ blue finish.
Moto Guzzi Le Mans KM17 now has the same minimalist stance, timeless finish, and performance capability that have grown to be signature of the company. Its engine is based upon the italian heavyweight Moto Guzzi ‘1064cc V-twin’; with bigger valves, a balanced crank, ported heads, and a hotter camshaft, for added power. An electronic ignition system, plus a pair of 40 mm carburetors make use of the upgraded hardware, and are fitted to the handcrafted matte black exhaust pipe.
Kaffeemaschine has widened the ‘le mans’ frame to accommodate the heavy V11 motor, and then finished it in black powder. On top is the supple handmade brown leather seat, forming a balanced relationship with the Jaguar blue fuel tank. Between the handlebars is an aftermarket Motogadget ‘Chronoclassic’ speedometer. Also adding to the timeless aesthetic are the handmade brown leather grips, with turn indicators sat either side of the modified vintage Magura handles. The ‘KM17′ weighs in at 182 kilos. It has been equipped with brake system and has also been replaced with all-new parts.
