Bunker Custom Cycles is an Istanbul (Turkey) based workshop run by two brothers Mert Uzer and Can Uzer. The whole motorcycles building thing started when the guys realized that instead of looking for the bike they like and not finding one they can just as well build one with their own hands. That was the beginning of BCC (I’m sure many other workshops and businesses have a similar story ;-)).
No doubt, 2012 Moto Guzzi V7 Classic has a very decent design to begin with. That was exactly the owner’s thought. His intentions were to keep those iconic Moto Guzzi lines but make some changes in proportions and improve performance to give the V7 some freshness and novelty – to keep it up with time if you will.
The front end of this Guzzi was rebuilt to look more like a Scrambler’s one: Renthal bars with Bittwell grips and analog ACEWELL mini speedo above the 4″ headlight fit this style perfectly. To make the overall design clean and neat Bunker Custom Cycles replaced stock turn signals with Bullet items and got a minimalistic LED indicator for the stop light.
The side panels were replaced with two stylish aluminum pieces. As you can see, the rear end was changed quite a bit and the original seat wouldn’t have been a good fit for the new look, so the team mounted a new comfortable leather covered brown seat that smoothes the line between the tank and the rear section.
The wheels are shod with Golden tires and the new footrests allow for a better grip which is very beneficial for country trips. The headers are wrapped with thermal wrap and feature Mistral silencers. Also, for better performance a power commander was installed.
This Moto Guzzi V7 by BCC is one of those builds that at first glance haven’t gone through many changes, though the new style is amazingly definitive.
