Thanks Sam,Restoring an old klunker is completed one part at a time ;DThere are so many great people willing to help on this web site, no matter the obstacle someone will have an answer the missing part or the technical know how to keep you going. The first Sport I built last year took twice as long and was twice as difficult, but the help from good people like Rolf in Norway, Joe in Chicago, Charlie in Virginia, Mark at Moto Guzzi Classics, Gord and Rick at MG Cycle and of course Curtis Harper, anything can be brought back to life!
Need to figure out how to clean and polish the hubs then they will get laced. Yes one step at a time.
Now if I could just find that reproduction decal for the electro-valve???
These stock fuse boxes with their European style fuses are sub-standard in my opinion, I much prefer modern blade fuses. I turfed the old fuse panel in my Eldorado and installed a modern compact blade fuse box next to the battery on my Eldorado. If I were keeping this bike I would do the same and keep the original style fuse box for safe keeping if I ever decided to sell it.
Ed Walton, may he rest in peace, before he passed away gave me lots of good advice on restoring my loop. He said to keep the tension on these fuses by stretching an "O" ring over the two brass clips.
Can I buy that seat seperately? Could always use a spare... ;D
Of Course I will sell the seat separately, asking $14,000.00 (will throw in the bike with it ;D)CheersJim
Does Katie come with it? ;DBeautiful work, Jim (as always). Anyone would be proud to make this bike part of their stable.Cheers,Shaun
If you think old Guzzi's take some maintenance I would hate to think what a young 'Katie' would take to keep purring. In my case I am too old to know what to do with such a pretty young thing, guess that's why I prefer my beauties to be 40 or over. :BEER:Cheers ;DJim
We have been having unseasonably warm weather, +7 C and its sunny so I opened up the garage door, poured some fresh premium fuel into the tank, flipped open the chokes and crossed my fingers. 1st attempt at starting the V7 Sport, the electronic petcock snapped open, fuel filled the bowls, a couple cranks and it roared into life ;D ;D ;DThe Sport warmed up quickly and I was able to flip the chokes down in about 30 seconds. Adjusted the idles and it purred real sweetly. After a few minutes the break in oil burned off and it just sounds great. Tomorrow I will re-torque the heads, check the valve clearance and replace the 1st run oil.It is so satisfying (and a heck of a relief) when a newly rebuilt engine starts for the 1st time.CheersJim
Congratulations, Jim. Well done!Shaun
Jim, is the S3 next ? Not that I care or anything ....Luca
