Italian-Americans often seem to be more Italian than actual, you know, Italians. Maybe that’s why Moto Guzzi, Europe’s oldest motorcycle manufacturer in continuous production, have named as many of their bikes after American places as Italian ones.
This is one such bike, the Daytona 1000, as built by previous bloggee Angka Utama. Powered by a V-Twin producing around 100bhp the Daytona was a quick bike in its day, and was produced during the ’90s when the brand was under DeTomaso’s ownership.
There’s more to see of Angka’s excellent Model Team recreation of the Moto Guzzi Daytona 1000 at both Flickr and MOCpages – click the links to go for a ride.
