Two French custom motorcycle fabricators and their beautiful creation a custom Moto Guzzi Le Mans have got our full attention. Sebastian Guillemot and Matthew Menard of FCR have at least two things in common: a passion for motorcycles and the desire to succeed.
I guess these are the two core ingredients which fit perfectly in the world of motorcycles. Their FCR workshop comprises of a 60 m2 showroom and showcases some beautiful machines that were made entirely by them. According to Sebastian “ FCR is operated by two members, we have created this workshop to build decent and appealing bikes with a high finished quality. Our customized motorcycles have style and panache and they are an absolute pleasure to ride.
We participated in the championships of France Dragster and we finished fourth in 2011 and our Dragster was shown at the Paris expo Porte de Versailles. At our FCR workshop we can do it all from fabrication, paint and metal work which includes conception fabrication of the frame and full exhaust. We also specialize in fairing fabrication or other pieces with composite materials (fiberglass, carbon, kevlar) and all the assembly.”
Today’s featured motorcycle this custom Moto Guzzi Le Mans was built for Mcube Vintage shop. The idea for the build was to design a Café Racer using this Guzzi with a different color and bodyline to what we usually see. The base for this build was a California T3, which has been heavily modified to create this great bodyline. The engine was reconditioned with Mikuni carburetors and was fitted with a Lafranconi competition exhaust system.
FCR custom Moto Guzzi Le Mans features Tomaselli handlebars, V7 sport rear light and footrest. The fabrication work includes a custom fiberglass fuel tank and front and rear fender. All the electrical was re wired and relocated. My personal favorite on this Custom Moto Guzzi Le Mans has to be the fuel tank and the classic light blue finish color!
