GuzziTech Unveils GTM02
Todd Eagan had a Moto Guzzi back in 1999, and after putting thousands of miles on the bike, transformed it, making it better in both aesthetics and performance. Eagan wants to do the same for you. His company, GuzziTech will transform your bike, but only if it’s a single-sided swingarm Guzzi manufactured from 2006–2017. After paying Eagan a pretty penny ($17,500), he’ll build you a base GTM02. The first group of GTM02s are already ready to ride at the GuzziTech shop in Los Angeles and we’re eager to see these bad boys out on the road. Looks like a lot is happening in LA – might be time to take a ride to the west coast. If you decide to head that way, check out our list of Top West Coast rides
