looks like a 1977 model , over here only the sport had a steering damper, but that might be different for other markets.
Very cool. Are no-title issues hard to resolve in MD?
It is a Sport. I can see the "S" at the right base of the front cylinder. The front mudguard is the short Sport version, and the steering damper confirms everything. The tank paint scheme seems like a 1978 or 1979 model.It appears to be in very good condition overall, all things considered. Obviously, a new cam belt is the first thing to get. Wheel bearings and steering head bearings also should be checked. The rest will be a matter of cleaning and the usual replacements. The nice thing about Morinis is that the factory used top-shelf components for their day. They need very little to keep running well.I would say that you got a very nice deal. Enjoy the restoration!
I hope you have lots of popcorn! Not much will happen for a while, although I might get it up on a lift soon and give the engine a once over and see if it'll run. Definitely will need a timing belt replacement and I'll want to check a long "laundry list" of items before the attempt. If it runs and doesn't make any "funny" noises, then it could happen a lot sooner.
project is coming along nicely!I would be tempted to start it, so you can concentrate on the cosmetic stuff...
wow, you found a sport front fender, those have been not available for at least 20 years
One more thing arrived today, direct from Italy. Engine gasket set. [/url][/img]
Gaining...Maybe I missed it but are you going through the engine in this...?You have me beat on the registration tag too, the V1000 was last on the road in '91 according to the plate on it.
"To Be Determined". I'll only tear into it if necessary. It turns over and has compression, oil looks fresh, shifts through the gears and the clutch works. Once I pop the rocker covers off and drain the oil (to see if there any shrapnel on the filter screen or in the bottom of the case), I'll know if I need to dig in or not. I bought the gasket set mostly for the rocker cover, manifold, exhaust and oil strainer gaskets. It was less costly than buying them individually.
