Guzzi Raceco project.............. It'll be a Beast !

Here are pictures of Peter's (Pennsylvania) Daytona project. He bought it a few years ago,as it is, waiting for time and money (apart from his 1100 Sport also has a Cali Jackal cafe project) to get it road ready and, as is always important, wants it to be right and not rushed. He's loosely tried the Kawasaki seat unit on it and even trimmed down a little, it is still too big. His thoughts are to try a Honda RS250 item.
  Look at the pictures and read some of the spec that I have listed. It really is going to be one hell of a bike !
   12 + years ago I had a go on one with 120bhp at the back wheel albeit on unfamiliar tiny B roads and you could feel that was quite something,but 142bhp at the back wheel..........arghhh ! 
  Bear in mind that factory figures that people quote when selling a Guzzi are crank figures and you can easily take off  20+ bhp for a rear wheel figure.
