Moto Guzzi SP by Kaffeemaschine

Kaffeemaschine’s number 9 build is based on a 1978 Moto Guzzi SP. To begin with the build the stock Moto Guzzi SP bike was totally stripped. The engine, transmission and drive train was rebuilt new with 1000ccm cylinders/pistons, a lighter one disc clutch and wider intakes with 36mm Dellortos. The stainless exhaust and aluminium parts are handmade. The frame of this custom Moto Guzzi SP was shortened and modified to carry the seat pan.
The tank is from a Moto Guzzi LeMans 2 and the wheels are XS Performance with stainless spokes. According to Axel “ I wanted to build a relaxed bike with a moderate seating position and therefore decided to leave the original integral brake system- this means the foot pedal brake operates one front disc and the rear disc – very cool. That goes well with the elaborate, fully adjustable suspension- Wilbers suspension in the rear and a Yamaha fork, which I modified a lot to maintain the classic look.”
Electrical modification on this Moto Guzzi SP includes a Motogadget instrument fitted underneath the tank. The space within the frame was filled with a “glove box”, a bag behind the side covers, built by Axel’s upholstery specialist Alex (, who also did the beautiful seat, too.
