Moto Guzzi V7 Vanguard (1)

Yes! Another cool build from our friends at Wrench Kings! And it’s another beautiful Moto Guzzi V7. It’s a project commissioned by Vanguard Jeans and the Kings worked closely together with Gannet Design from Germany. Moto Guzzi V7 Vanguard (2)

Ulfert Janssen from Gannet:

“In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Moto Guzzi V7 and new Vanguard jeans, we designed a one-off custom bike which bridges between the first V7 Guzzi model and the Guzzi bike from today. We changed the stance of the bike and created a slightly forward leaning angle for more sexy proportions and racer look.The design is a bit retro fitted and some details throw you back a couple of decades. Yet the overall design keeps the connection to the contemporary donor bike, which gives a feeling of a timeless mix.The custom cafe racer tail section and the “bikini fairing” underlines the racer style with a touch of vintage form language.

The custom cafe racer tail section and the “bikini fairing” underlines the racer style with a touch of vintage form language. Furthermore, we integrated key design elements of the new Vanguard V7 jeans into this exceptional bike, such as the special denim blue, quilted leather on the seat matching the leather patch on the jeans and V logo in the rear light, just to mention a few. As a special feature, we designed a custom 2-into-1 exhaust system with a solid roar and it announces the approach of the head turner even from a distance. The bike got built by the Wrench Kings with great attention to detail. In essence, the Vanguard Guzzi V7 has a super stylish and clean look with a mix of timeless classic and modern elements, and it fits perfectly to Vanguard Clothing.”

Wrench Kings about the project:

“After we agreed with the design in collaboration with Gannet Design and Vanguard Clothing we started the build. As usual, we start the build by cutting the rear sub frame, it gets disassembled, lowered and shortened. Then the fitting part starts with the new front fairing and the new rear end. The tank of the bike is original but, we needed to customize the tank so we could fit the Monza cap and place the type plates off the bike with the Vanguard logo and information.As seen in the design of Gannet the rear light with the Vanguard logo is cut out of the rear end, hand crafted.

As seen in the design of Gannet the rear light with the Vanguard logo is cut out of the rear end, hand crafted. Most of the bolts are blue anodized in the color of the buttons of the V7 Vanguard Jeans. The pattern of the seat is also processed in the jeans. There are many details and components used in the jeans, which can be found back in the bike.”
