- Based on a 2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Stone, the Tractor 02 is inspired by one of Venier’s previous projects, the V75, in which he transformed a ‘90’s era Italian police-force NTX 750 into a militarily-styled scrambler.
- The Tractor 02 sports a more aggressive, off-road worthy look compared to the V75 thanks to a pair of Continental dual-sport knobbies wrapped around the wire-spoked wheels of a V7 Racer.
- He ditched the stock valve covers for a set with a more vintage look.
- Venier shortened a set of Renthal handlebars for the 02 and fit a Legendary-Motorcycles GPS Speedometer and small, black LSL headlight.
- Venier’s New York-based client wanted the Tractor 02 to be comfortable for a rider and passenger, so he lengthened the rear frame and hand-made a custom seat slightly longer than stock.
- The minimal front fender and tail section resemble those used on the V75, though the 02’s front piece sits much closer to the tire, creating an almost seamless union of smooth and coarse textures.
- In terms of aesthetics, Venier is decidedly anti-flash. He decided to go with a combination of two glossy greys, separated by a gold pinstripe to accent the gold Venier Customs logo - one of the boldest uses of color on any of his builds to date.
- The tank is the same Venier designed for the V75, a set-up that incorporates the fuel-pump and which Venier describes as “my ideal Moto Guzzi Scrambler tank.”
- Venier’s love for Moto Guzzi runs deep, and there’s no shortage of projects in the works.
