We’ve long been fans of Venier builds, with quite a few creations from their New York-by-way-of-Italy shop hitting our pages over the years. Here’s a build that might feel as good to ride as it does to behold. Intended as a comfortable two seater for long hauls, this custom used a 1999 Cagiva Gran Canyon as the donor bike, along with its original Ducati 900 engine.
To make it a true Venier creation, the body work was stripped down and replaced with lots of custom fabricated parts — like the aluminum handlebar and fenders, mufflers built by MASS, carbon fiber engine covers, and MotoGadget speedo and indicators. The seat retains the original design with a fresh upholstering in leather.
A few things stayed the same, like the Marzocchi front fork, the rear shock by Sachs and a Nissin braking system (which got the benefit of some new Braking rotors). The whole thing was then blacked out in powder coat and given Venier’s signature understated, two-toned stripe on the tank with the Venier logo in gold to match the original rims.
But the best part is, unlike many of the Venier customs we see, this one still happens to be up for grabs. – Shop Now
