Raven Motorcycles... (Un guzzi di traverso)

Se la vedessero a Mandello del Lario.....

Notate qualcosa di strano?? :)

Handbuilt Raven Motorcycle from Asheville, NC.

2011 Raven 750 -1971 Moto Guzzi engine, Norton trans and primary, Honda 350 fork, swingarm and wheels. Frame and cycle design by Jeff Gundlach in Asheville, North Carolina. This bike was designed to build in numbers and sell. There is also a single cylinder in the process of construction along the same basic designs as the twin. Interested parties may contact Jeff. Email is:

Aggiornamento : risposta alla mail al proprietario " Dear Simone,
Thanks for showing the Raven in your blog. It's good to hear from someone that gets it. Crazy is an excellent way to describe the bike. The machine is great fun to ride.
As ever, Jeff"

Goldammer " Trouble "


Trouble is a V-twin single cylinder. A lot of unique things about it. Small details like I placed the shock and spring inside of the neck of the frame. I was headed to the AMD Championship and it was in the height of the long wheel bases and fat tires. I wanted to go there with something worthy of backing up the BTR-3. The bike was such a contrast to everything else that was there.

Trouble was an exercise in minimalism. There are lots of unique things about this bike. The shock and spring are inside the neck of the frame. I wanted to go to the bike show with something worthy of backing up the BRT3 and I wanted to create a bike that was such a contrast to everything that was out there at the time. It was at the height of long wheel bases and fat tires.

I enjoy mixing modern design and materials to capturing the board track era.
