Sure is nice to look out my back window and see this,I really did hit the jackpot in more ways than apparent. The most rewarding part is being able to spend time with fellow Guzzi enthusiast forum members. I am amazed at the very high level and mastery of varied skills and knowledge and kindness and willingness to share. Cliffrod is no exception. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of most types of older bikes, remarkable fabricating skills and if that's not enough he is a master chef and master sculptor. Watching him carve granite and learning how he sets up and approaches the various facets of a sculpture was an experience I would never have had if I was sitting at home and I am so glad I was afforded an opportunity to do this. Watching him cook is just as amazing.Now to the bike. I couldn't have found a better deal if I had been patiently looking. I was not thinking of buying another bike, but cliffrod casually mentioned, "there is a nice V7 that could be had for a good price" and that was all it took. He even found a rear carrier at a good price too. I got set up with the whole complete kit.I will need to do a few things with the bike to get it ready to ride. Tires are old and cracked and will be replaced. Change all the fluids of course. A good tune. I will pull the tank and then remove the fuel pump assembly and clean the tank and vent lines and replace the filter if it's a half plastic one. Other than that I will be trying to shed as much weight as possible off the bike. While the tires are off I may seal the rims to run tubeless. Also it needs a good clean and polish.I am now heading south in the direction of Savannah and will be back to Florida for a few weeks to sort out the new bike and a few other things. I am open to detouring to visit other members along the way, those are the high points of my journey. Just let me know.
Just so no one is misled, I went right back to being a incompetent peckerhead as soon as you left….
We are here in NM in the East Mountain area (about 20 miles east of ABQ). Have some very nice roads in the area. Plenty of room for the van.GliderJohn
Very cool- love seeing the progress. Were you able to resolve the tank cover fitment without big complications?
