lovely bikeI think those dyna coils are 99percent likely to be junk now.Great coils, but the manufacturer specifies that they must be mounted to the frame at both ends, this is to aid heat dissipation....Looks like your PO took the easier cable tie route!Brackets off 80s jap bikes can be fairly easily modified to fit the guzzi frame behind the side cover, If I had a smart phone I'd snap you some pics of how I did it...And... is that a 16 front wheel? Make sure you run the updated air pressures. FWIW I prefer a 16 wheel on the later lemans
You asked about tires.....I have Pirelli Sport Demons on my 1985 Lemans 1000. They work a treat!
Ended up getting a a pair of Battlax BT46. Literally the only set I could find.
I'm running Dunlop GT501's on my '87 LMIVSE w/16" front but they're near the end of their useful life. I'd like to replace them with a matched set too but when I was looking last Fall everyone was out of stock on the fronts. If you don't mind, I like to know where you were able to find your BT's. The Dunlops were originally installed by the PO so, I replaced them with the same several years ago but never liked them because the rear wheel would loose traction when I'd roll on the throttle while midway through a turn from a stop..every now & then.Thanks,ArtPS - FWIW, I also put the ign coils & headlight circuits on a relays.
Hey Art. Now that the BT's are on the bike, and the feedback i received I feel pretty good about them. Haven't had the time I'd like so they haven't been tested yet. Hopefully this weekend. I found the set here:AmericanMotoTire.co mFree shipping to Indy from Phoenix. Had them 48 hours after clicking 'complete purchase'. Astounded. very fair price, too.As for the bike, let's face it, feeding a thread like this is but one more way in which I'm no 'ChuckInIndiana'. And truth be told there's not much to show.
Here's the photo album from my restoration. Check what I did with the coils- the bracket was for a H-D Sportster, I'll have a look to see if I can find the source. The photos are in no particular order...https://photos.app.goo.gl/CsYxL1e8Nly9Nial2
Thats a beautiful bike, PA.I recognize the Bub headers/crossover. What are the silencers?
The exhaust is BUB end to end. A lightly used eBay acquisition I jumped on. They sound great but I think they throttle the top end a little. I'd like to find something a little more modern for comparison. BTW in no measure a stock engine, where these pipes would be outstanding.

Nice job! Hey Kidsmoke... so I ordered the tires from AMT yesterday morning, they showed up here a few hours ago!Art
AMT is my "go to" supplier for tires. Unfortunately, the tires I needed this time were out of stock there. Had to deal with Chaparral (non-existent customer service) and JP Cycles (sent an old tire).
Yeah, I was disappointed that my BT46's from AMT are kind of old (front, 103 weeks & rear 63 weeks) but when I was looking last Fall everybody was out of the fronts and I wanted a matched pair so I put off buying jsut a rear. In the past I rejected anything more than 8-10 monthes old, I guess those days are gone for the time being. Anyway, these tires have to be better than the 12+ year old skins on the LMIVSE now.
