Our cars are subject to engineering refinements and on-going development. We therefore reserve the right to change specifications and prices accordingly. This is particularly critical with out sourced components as we are a low volume consumer, and subject to our suppliers increasing their prices.

1) Starter Kit/Body chassis unit (Kit 001):

Comprising:

  • Fully welded chassis, blasted and epoxy powder coated in black.
  • All aluminium components fully trimmed to fit with all holes punched.
  • Upper rear aluminium bulkhead panel with pair of fitted hinged luggage locker doors.
  • Polished aluminium panel fitted to front of scuttle (visible when bonnet halves are raised).
  • One piece aluminium floor panel.
  • All riv nuts fitted to the chassis enabling fitment of removable panels.
  • Pre-formed aluminium bonnet sides complete with 48 louvres per side.
  • Stainless steel bonnet hinge and fittings:
  • 2 aluminium main side panels trimmed to fit, complete with 6 rear 6 inch louvres per side ( beetle-back only)
  • 2 louvred detachable, shaped front side panels.

    3595 (Beetle back) 3695 (Barrelback)
      See photos of this kit at panelled bodywork

    N.B. For the avoidance of doubt, the circle polished dashboard is not included in this kit, as it has always been an option, and is shown within the options list below, or within the MG3 Modular Kit 006 Dashboard and Scuttle Kit.
  • All panels will have trial fitted to the chassis leaving you simply to rivet them into place.

Bare metal wishbones: 250

Gear change linkage: 145 Please submit your splined gear changer for us to weld to a component. This is found on the end of your donor gearbox.


Budget Aero Merlin rolling chassis option:

If you already have a Moto Guzzi donor bike, why not purchase a fully plumbed (brake lines and wiring loom fitted) rolling chassis!? This enables you to roll the chassis around and outside your garage/workshop.

You will receive the following, all fully fitted:
1) Epoxy powder coated chassis (beetle or barrelback) fitted with all bonded/riveted/bolted aluminium panels The main side panels will be fitted by cleko pins enabling you to remove/re-fit for additional build access. You will need to bond and rivet these side panels on eventually yourself.
2) All grp panels fitted (easily removable).
3) Bonnet panels with a total of 96 louvres, pre-formed and fitted, complete with full length stainless steel hinge.
4) All stainless steel brake lines fully fitted, including pedal box.
5) Wiring loom fitted to chassis. (Loom will be left over length enabling you to connect to switches/lights etc)
6) Light weight alloy suspension units, alloy calipers, 19 inch alloy wheels and Avon tyres, mudguard stays, all fitted.
7) Stainless steel mudguards.
8) Steering column, steering rack, steering wheel and boss all fully fitted.
9) Rear propshaft bearing, jig fitted to rear bulkhead. Enabling your choice of  our propshafts (and reversing gearbox) to be purchased and fitted by you later.
10) Temporary light weight jockey wheel fitted to rear of chassis, enabling whole chassis to move. This is removed by you when you fit your donor swing arm

Price: 8995
Other items to finish the vehicle can be purchased from our options list (prices and specifications) or sourced elsewhere by you.

 



It is assumed that you are providing a suitable donor Moto Guzzi bike. If not, we can assist in three ways:

a) a low mileage donor bike complete,
b) a reconditioned/rebuilt drive train,
c) brand new engine/gearbox/final drive.
All of these options are at additional cost and subject to availability.

Full build prices: Scroll right down to the bottom of this section.

Alternatively, and to make things easier if you are initially cost conscious, you may purchase Kit 001 as a starter kit, then buy items 2-8 (as shown below), then from the options list as you require them. This gets you underway with your build.

1) Body chassis unit (Kit 001):

Comprising:

  • Fully welded chassis, blasted and epoxy powder coated in black.
  • All aluminium components fully trimmed to fit with all holes punched.
  • Upper rear aluminium bulkhead panel with pair of fitted hinged luggage locker doors.

We can paint the GRP components only, leaving polished bodywork, or paint the whole car. Allow 1200 to fully paint a car.

A fully built up Moto Guzzi car is supplied with fitted aeroscreens.

Remember, we supply and use new components only  (excepting our refurbished/rebuilt engines/drivetrains), nothing is used.

Our built up prices do not include the costs of an MSVA test, an MOT test and full registration. These published charges are passed on to you at cost. We present the car for MSVA & MOT tests at cost. We cannot control the dates of either tests or registration procedures in relation to a build.

Currently, the following costs apply to meet UK MSVA, MOT and DVLA compliance:

MSVA Test 104, MOT test, 35, first registration fee, 50, VED (road tax for 1 year) 74. The nearest MSVA test centre is a 200 mile round trip (Southampton), and the test lasts for 4 hours. A presentation fee for both tests (including fuel), is charged for at a cost of 250.

We cannot guarantee the year/age related registration that  DVLA will allocate. We endeavour to work with DVLA in obtaining an age related registration number, or a new number, generally, however the final registration number is down to DVLA's discretion and guidelines.

For MG3 cars using brand new components throughout, and/or one fully reconditioned unit (engine/gearbox), we can obtain a new registration should you wish, or, an age related registration number. 

We reserve the right to increase prices even once quoted, should our suppliers do likewise.
