850T project
« on: December 19, 2021, 11:21:59 AM »
Been on the site for a while always watching for an older Guzzi to cafe,liked the look since the early 80s,yep i'm old.Have a 13 Stelvio i've been running now and have one bike to redo this winter before the cafe becomes a reality with this 75 850t,started stripping off what i call some of the ugly and now looking for an idea for how to move the sidestand back some,new lower rails or cut off and weld a tab farther back,anyone have some lower bars and clutch cable ,would like to ride it with lower bars ,not sure if i want clipons or just a lower bar setup before the build starts,any links to other builds would be appreciated.The little Bulldog is growing on me







Never argue with an idiot, people watching can't tell the difference

That will look really nice with a freshening and without the doodads.  Good score  :thumb:

Convert lower rails have a great sturdy side stand. Also, I like the low bars on the early Spadas.  I think they are the same as on the v50ii. You have a great T to work with.
