I realize that these were fugly when new, but I prefer all the OEM parts left on.

The T5 has 16" wheels front and rear. I wonder if tires are available? If it's like the Ducati Paso, tires are unobtainable unless you find leftovers in a warehouse somewhere.

sporty 16" tires are available. I put Avon Azaros on my 750 Paso. Bridgestone Battlaxx 16" also available front and rear. I think one of the less costly manufacturers also make 16" tires.

I go with a taller aspect ratio when buying tires for 16" rims.

That is the T-5 with the wooden dash...

If that ad is legitimate, and the bike is truly a "turn-key" Guzzi as described...how can on go wrong for $3K? :thumb:

It's only a couple miles from my house, so if anyone is serious about it, I could probably go check it out.
