Eldo Police Custom
1974 950cc Eldorado Special

    I started this bike early this year (2008), but due to the enormous volume of business that Zydeco Racing has experienced, it is still not finished. I won't have time to do a blog type record of the build, but will try to put up some of the more interesting photos and some brief explanations of the construction of this bike.

    If it does not seem clear exactly what I am building from the photos, that is because I haven't decided entirely what the finished bike will look like. Since I do sell Moto Guzzi parts as part of Zydeco Racing, I have collected a lot of different options, some of which will become part of another project or will be sold.
