Nice! Any way I can can get the width of the stripes on the fuel tank and side panels? I'd like to paint my V7C to match the pattern.

The 2015 International Bike Show has come and gone. My 74 V7 Sport was on display in our Canadian Vintage Motorcycle Group Display.

The Sport gathered a lot of attention....

These lovely young ladies took a particular interest in it ;D



Women of taste.  Yet not a one of them was probably around in 1974.  I am going to restomod my 74 V7 Sport and will use this thread as a valuable reference.

Those look great, Jim, and somewhat familiar!   ;D



By the way, I haven't taken the time to sort out how to mount the gas cap yet, so would appreciate your sharing any thoughts you might have once complete.

Cheers,

Nice work Shaun!

The gas cap slides over the tank tangs, the spring loaded tab on the underside of the cap folds back and the cap slides over the tangs.

Cheers

As I was throwing a coat of wax on my '14 V7 Special (50* here today), it pissed me off that Guzzi didn't continue the 750S - type stripes up over the top of the tank.  If you're going "retro", do it right for shit sakes!

Thanks, Jim.  I think I understand what you are describing, but might have a couple of questions when I get to that point.  Can't wait to see how yours comes out!

Guzzi is doing a great job on the new line of 750's but I would like to see a new V7 done up with all the original styling queues of the 750S, black shark gill mufflers, the 'right' paint job on the gas tank, spoke wheels with Boranni or Akront rims, swan neck bars, chrome fenders a big all chrome headlight and the monoposto seat. The 750S is such a classy looking bike and 'adopting' the original high end touches would really set the new bike apart.

Yes chrome plated cylinders on the S3, I am sending the original cylinders to be coated and matched to new pistons and rings.

It's time to find a good home for this V7 Sport. Other projects await and I can't keep two V7 Sports. This bike is finished, it starts from cold immediately, idles smoothly.

I am going to list it here for a week before trying fleBay and batting off Nigerian 'entrepreneurs'.

My asking price is $13,750.00 I can arrange shipping anywhere in the USA or Canada but buyer pays shipping costs. Across Canada is likely under $1000,00, as far south as Florida will likely be $1500.00

I have a clear Illinois title, all receipts of parts and machining.





















The bike is registered as a 1974 but the ID tag says it is a 1973





From this post you can see that everything has been replaced or refurbished. The original block was long gone so a new V7 Sport motor was built up with an original crank, rods, cam and NOS gears, Gilldorni cylinder kits and rebuilt heads. The block was re-stamped to match the ID tag.

The only item not 100% correct is the rear wheel is a standard Record rim, not a Record Cross, front rim is a NOS Record Cross.

The European type Aprilia cast signal lights are used rather than the Lucas.

The motor needs to be broken in, I have flushed clean oil through three times.

If interested send me a pm and we can talk. Have many more pictures upon request.

Here is You Tube link to the bike being started from cold this afternoon. It had not been started in over a week.

Thanks for looking!

Jim
