If you remember what the original 1000SP looked like then you’ll appreciate the hours of work that have gone into transforming this Guzzi into a work of art. Built by Italian Filippo Barbacane from Officine Rossopuro who spent 4 months creating this bike he calls the TTre. Filippo and Officine Rossopuro have become synonymous with creating some of the best looking Moto Guzzi’s in the world.
The first thing that had to go was the original bulky fairing – which even wrapped around the 60 hp air-cooled 948cc v-twin motor. Some of the other work included adding 45 mm Tarozzi handlebars, cone-shaped exhaust from Megaton, Marzocchi front fork, Brembo brakes and the rear suspension is made from two Asatek springs. The well-proportioned tank and seat have been custom made by Officine Rossopuro – creating some aesthetically pleasing lines. Lastly, the bike was finished in a classic cream and brown paint job by Carrozzeria Melideo.
