Where’s the Battery?

Recommended Posts

I found this site with profiles of cool Guzzi cafe racer custom builds, https://www.returnofthecaferacers.com/category/moto-guzzi-cafe-racer/ .

At the risk of exposing myself as a total ignoramus, I am wondering where the battries have gone on these bikes? Is there a type of stealth battery replacement that builders use to eliminate the bulky standard battery under the seat, or are these hard-core bump-start bikes? Is that a common approach or aesthetic for custom cafe racers?

I think they bung them either under the gearbox or in the seat hump?

No kick start, so they can't use a capacitor. I'd say in the hump mostly, but all available room is considered. The lower the better, so under the trans is not a bad idea.
