REVEL IN THE DETAILS. NCT’s Immaculate Moto Guzzi T5 Street Scrambler
Your average motorcycle is made up of around 2000 individual parts. And any customiser worth their salt will have to consider each and every one of those before they get to a finished custom bike. Some will gloss over these details, but we think it’s fair to say that Austria’s David Widmann and his NCT Motorcycles is not one of those builders. And with the release of this Moto Guzzi T5, his latest build, he’s proven it. Like a bit of attention to detail in your customs? You’ve got it.
It’s been a while since NCT finished their first Moto Guzzi, but luckily for us they thought it was a good time to present their second T5 Guzzi build. A custom project for a client with very high standards, tool time wasn’t started until they had agreed on a clear concept and design. “Once we’d ticked that box, we started stripping down the bike,” says Dave. Then NCT team member Manuel Tilke, their resident chassis and sheet metal specialist, reworked the frame by cutting off the rearward excess and rebuilding it with a jaunty upturn above the rear axle.
