Cafe Racer Miss Memphis built by Alan Bernard and Mike Lima from custom-studio “Santiago Chopper”. The design of the motorcycle used by the military emblems, that brings us back to the history of Moto Guzzi and in particular the inception of the Italian brand’s logo.
Giovanni Ravelli (one of the three founders of Moto Guzzi) was killed in plane crash just days after the war. His partners Giorgio Parodi and Carlo decided to dedicate Guzzi in the memory of Ravelli. Giovanni interested in aviation and aircraft, so it was decided to use a winged eagle of Italian Air Force decorations. Recasting Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport 1997, American customizer delved into the topic impact of aviation on the Moto Guzzi. Not to mention the longitudinal engine layout, which resembles the first aircraft engines.
