Based in Philadelphia, former college professor turned custom bike builder, James Loughead fell for Moto Guzzis at first sight. He tells Bike Exif, "Late one evening, a friend of my father’s arrived riding a black Moto Guzzi V7 Sport, He’d flown in from England, bought the Guzzi in New York City and was headed west. Armed with only a map and a small tank bag, he was beginning a three-month odyssey that became legend in our house."

That odyssey spurred James' interest in motorcycles and desire to tour himself. Years later, he's teamed up for a one-off build sanctioned by Moto Guzzi USA. He's calling it the Wayward. It is incredibly sexy. Hats off, James. Another Hammarhead Industries banger.
