Santiago Chopper – TRIBUTE TO THE ISLE OF MAN – GUZZI OF MAN
Santiago Chopper_Guzzi of Man Motorcycle
Two years ago I did my first Guzzi cafe racer, and I fell in love with the Guzzi sport. It was something very different and the mechanical aspects of this Italian bike are incredible—the power and torque of this engine are so cool. The customer saw an article about my Guzzi Memphis in a French magazine, and he contacted me to build this bike. He gave me total control over the project to create something original … and a very nice budget too!
The bike will be delivered to the French Riviera; let’s call the bike Guzzi of Man.
