This Weeks Cling On Girl

Yep! A Moto Guzzi V8 with machineguns...

That will unquestionably get you through traffic!!!


USA V8 vs. Europe V8

The Moto Guzzi V8 is a motorcycle marvel! A masterpiece so unique, complex, and expensive to maintain that it was only used for racing from 1955-57.

The Dr. Giulio Cesare Carcano build water-cooled, 500 cc V-8 motor with dual overhead cams and a separate carburettor for each of the eight cylinders, weighed only 45 kg and produced an unprecedented 78 hp at 12000 rpm!?! The motorcycle proved capable of achieving 280 km/h, speeds that was not reached again in Grand Prix Motorcycle Racing before 20 years later. Wow!!!

Until recently I had never seen a race bike with a V8, but then I was introduced to the Michigan Madman E.J. Potter! His homebuilt motorcycle, “The Widow Maker", had a Chevy V8 in an old Harley Davidson frame! What a nutter!!!

Typical American... Bigger is better right?!? All muscles and no brain, pedal to the metal attitude. And I am sure the Chevy V8 bike doesn’t corner very well?

Well what bike is best? Does it matter? Both bikes would make my heart race if I had a try. And that is the point right?
