What we need is someone with an inside to the Guzzi factory to talk them into making up some heads. They Shirley ;) haven't thrown away the tooling..
OK, sorry for the necro-post here, but I don't have time to read thru 37 pages
over the last 4 years
to find out if someone has already corrected you, but iirc, you were already 3 years late with the "Surely they haven't..." when you posted this back in 2013!Guzzi
doesn't have anything
: it's all Piaggio, and they sold off tons of parts and scrapped everything possible back in 2010 [again, iirc: I'm old & have bad case of CRS] when they shelved the 2v big blocks and decided "Only new engines going forward." Maybe it was a little later than that: any of the Guzzi dealership lurkers like Dave Richardson, Greg Field, Todd Eagen, etc. would remember when Piaggio had the big "buy it now or hold your pieces" sale. You know all those unobtanium factory parts like the Ti exhaust that are/were only available from the big Guzzi specialist in Germany? That's 'cause they mortgaged everything, including the cat
in order to buy up all the parts they could when Piaggio was blowing them out for scrap!
Your ersatz Ippogrifo is the only one there is ever likely to be, unless there are some more U.S. or Israeli mil-surp engines floating around for a drone platform that was retired in the '00s.. Congrats on the truly one-off ride!
