Fat Tracker: Untitled’s Stripped-Down Moto Guzzi V9






It’s been a busy year for Hugo Eccles of Untitled Motorcycles. His Ducati Hyper Scrambler appeared on Jay Leno’s Garage, and his ‘Supernaturale’ Moto Guzzi custom won the coveted Design & Style award at the Quail Motorcycle Gathering this past June.
Moto Guzzi must have been paying attention because they recently commissioned Hugo to customize their V9 Bobber as part of their ‘Pro-Build’ program.

Untitled Motorcycles have an unusual cross-continent split: Hugo runs the San Francisco workshop, and Adam Kay the original London setup. They?ve been around since 2010, and feature regularly on EXIF and in the original bible of the modern custom scene, The Ride.
Hugo started by stripping the V9 Bobber down to the running chassis?frame, motor, and wheels?to see what lay underneath the panels.

“The V9 has a lovely Tonti-style tubular frame,? he says. ?The rear of the frame, where it supports the engine, suggested the outline of a racing number plate. That’s where the idea for a fat-wheeled flat tracker started.”
“I decided to customize the Bobber version because I like the fat-wheel look, and I wanted to retain the original 16” cast alloy wheels. The shaft drive also makes swapping the rear end tricky.?

Hugo mistakenly thought it?d be easy to find cool 16″ rubber. After three weeks of searching, he finally located a set of Heidenau K66 all-weather tires. “They’re actually scooter tires, but rated to 112mph and 639 pounds?so they’re adequately spec’d for the bike.” Identical 140/70-16 tires are fitted both front and rear, and are interchangeable?in keeping with the flat track theme.

Hugo has cleaned up the V9’s frame, removing redundant brackets for the stock battery, airbox, and ABS. He?s also moved the rear suspension mounts forward an inch to accommodate longer Hagon 420mm (16.5″) shocks, and added a custom rear hoop to continue the flow of the frame and create a seat bump stop.
The Guzzi’s air-cooled 853cc motor is engineered for torque so it’s well suited to dirt. “I really liked the idea of creating a tension between the large transverse v-twin motor and a small body perched on top,” he says.

Hugo designed a chopped-down, super-slim monobody that contrasts with the width of the V-twin cylinders. It’s inspired by the 1960s Hanna-Barbera character Magilla Gorilla?a large ape with a tiny hat?and takes cues from the lines of the Guzzi’s frame.
Help came from Nate Diepenbroek, a fabricator near UMC’s San Francisco workshop. “Nate and I worked together on the UMC-038 Hyper Scrambler, and we have a good working relationship,” says Hugo. “I create the design and the rough buck?usually from cardboard, foam and bondo?and then Nate and I work together, to translate it into metal.”

Diepenbroek used the original tank tunnel but ended up moving the side-mounted f...
