Interesting project! That's the first time I've seen a "polizia" fairing meant for a Loopframe Guzzi mounted to a Tonti guzzi.
I have just spent the last 2 winters going over every piece of a v7 sport, and I must say that your top triple clamp modification resembles one for a real v7 sport very closely.
Fun project! I look forward to seeing the completed bike. I've got one question, however: How do you have the frame powder-coated without taking the engine out of it? Far as I'm aware, to powder-coat something you have to spray it with paint powder after cleaning and treatment of the metal surfaces and then bake it until the paint-powder melts and fuses into a tough, bonded finish. I don't know how you can do that without taking the engine out!I had my 850T frame, center stand, and swingarm powder-coated red once upon a time when I 'Sportified' it. It required a complete tear down, stripping to the metal, etc, and then a complete build up and reassembly. Came out great looking with a very very tough finish. I wasn't going for a full "V8 Sport" lookalike, however, just the ergonomics for the 850T since I liked the bike pretty much as it ran already and wanted something a bit more unique. :-)
Thanks for the kind words Ramarren! You are right about the powder coating. I had the engine removed and frame/swingarm plugged to get it coated, and installed the engine again before I took the picture. I've heard great things about the toughness of the powder coat finish! Your 850T sounds quite unique! Do you have a picture of it?
Nice work. Where did you get the fuel tank? I'm doing a similar project on a V50. Got my tank on eBay from India. fairly poor quality, but is going to do.
Looking good, watching this now!
Your bike looks really good, excellent progress! I did almost the same thing with my �85 Lemans, and used Cal III forks to get the front wire wheel. I went with the 70s short swing arm to get the rear wheel centered under the rear fender. I used an early rear wire wheel and laced up a matching rim for the Cal front wheel. Your 40mm swan neck mounts look a lot like the Verlicchi ones I found used for my bike, well done, you. I removed all of the Lemans foot pegs and controls, and went with the early style more forward parts.I really like the stainless front fender on your bike. I�m going to do that to mine so it matches the rear!Here is the link for my bike if you�re interested.http://wildguzzi.com/forum/index.php?topic=88567.0
