The Project C2 is a limited series motorcycle that uses the full potential of the California 1400s wonderfully designed base. With the California 1400, Moto Guzzi created their most impressive motorcycle so far, but its powerful engine still begs to be used in a more exciting setup. Venier has reimagined this bike with an artistic obsession over the finest details and a cunning minimization of components, setting some parts into traditionally unused spaces.
The C2 features one-off mufflers that were custom-made by Mass Moto. The engine was retuned by our trusted mechanic. Other than the Tarozzi rear set and clip-ons, everything was handmade. The original speedometer was integrated into the headlight bucket and the taillight has been beautifully recessed into the back of the seat. The rear turn lights are mounted on the frame. The front turn lights are made by Moto-Gadget and are mounted on the ends of aluminum billet grip handlebars. The culmination is a unique work of art that accentuates the power and beauty of the underlying California 1400 build and yet it is so different that it can be considered an entirely other creation.
