Nothing New, just rounding out my CARC collection. 50k miles comes with all 3 bags. I'm pretty excited about it. Back in 2019 I foolishly traded my Norge for an MGX-21, and have regretted it ever since.

The search is over, parts found at a used Honda parts outfit in Canada.
Someone at one of the places you guys recommended gave me a couple companies he deals with and the one in Canada had both brackets, in great condition.
Im supposed to find out Tuesday what the shipping cost is. I can get the parts for 100.00, the shipping will probably be about that, hopefully not!
Thanks for the responses guys. 👍👍👍

If an EV frame they are notorious for letting in water on steering head, mostly lower bearing. Steering dampener from Guzzi is a joke but I've never needed much if all in order on bike. I didn't see he had lowers on, got to look better. That combo should be rock solid at speed.

Did you run a hotwire to solenoid? It should turn motor unless Batt or starter is no good. If you can't turn motor by hand, disassemble to find out why!

Id be looking for a good used one.

I agree - complete good used lower "yoke" with stem. Mark @ Moto Guzzi Classics likely has some 562-986-0070.

I am pretty sure that modern catalized urethane paints are resistant to brake fluid.  Old lacquers and enamels are not.

He has the lowers on. There is a reason that, virtually every bike Guzzi made with a fairing, or that could be reasonably expected to have one mounted, came with a steering damper or was at least provided with mounts for same. The quality of some of the supplied dampers is another, separate issue.
YMMV
