One of the only down­sides to gor­geous cus­tom mo­tor­cy­cles is that they are of­ten one-offs. By the time you’ve seen it on these pages or on­line, it’s mak­ing its way into its owner’s hands never to find a home in your garage. baak Mo­tor­cy­cles, cus­tom builders from Lyon, France, think that this should change.

This V7 Scram­bler is built from a Moto Guzzi V7 base bike that they mod­ify to give it a stylish dual-sport twist. One of the most strik­ing el­e­ments of the bike is cus­tom high­line ex­haust made in-house by BAAK that is said to sound as good as it looks. The front-end is cleaned up con­sid­er­ably by a Bates head­light and mini speedo, mini-in­di­ca­tors and a cropped stain­less front mud­guard.

To suit the scram­bler name, the V7 is a fit­ted with a wide scram­bler-style han­dle­bar and off-road tyres. Com­plet­ing the look is a smat­ter­ing of leather goods in­clud­ing a tank strap, a new sad­dle and sad­dle­bags plus leather fork gaiters (re­ally). The cost for all this is €6600 (ap­prox. £5500), which in­cludes parts and labour, plus your own V7 as a donor bike. For more info visit

Pretty, but costs £5.5k on top of a V7 Leather sad­dle­bag is very French ‘Leather. Fork. Gaiters.’ Let’s say that again...
