My V7 Sport with similar components also has space as indicated in the picture. Just went and checked to make sure. Thatís how it has been since I got the bike long ago.My understanding- The top stem nut has a sleeve body that passes through the top triple tree to tighten against the rest of the stem assembly to secure/lock the assembly after removing free play in the steering stem. Once the top stem nut is tightened, the Allen head bolt on the triple tree clamp (at rear of triple tree) is tightened to secure it to the sleeve body of the top stem nut. If there is extra space, thatís not a problem.This specific top triple tree is not intended to be tightened down onto the stem assembly, only tightened around the sleeve body of the stem nut that is tightened as needed, just like the triple tree is secured by similar clamping fashion to the top of each fork tube. Some bikes, like a 750 Ambassador or 850 Eldorado, have top triple tree that is secured by tightening a through bolt into the fork tubes and nut on the steering stem. Others, like the Ceriani style triple tree on our V7 Sport and your S3, have a pinch clamp bolt instead to secure it to the various front end components.Hope that makes sense. Iím confident someone will correct me if Iím wrongÖ. Otherwise, good luck with the restoration and post some pics.
You Sir, have just made my day. I was wondering if somehow there were different heights of nuts and I had thrown away the lower (original) one.I will post more pictures in a dedicated topic in a while, but here is one for now
Thanks, man. Glad I could help. Your bike is looking great.
Thanks, I just realized you're from Spartanburg. I used to work for Milliken and have been there quite often during that period! At the time we hiked trails next to the blue ridge parkway, I remember how I would love to ride it on my bike one day! Cheers
When I was on YouTube just now, this video just popped up in the queue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOQPH0ggOh4It shows an SP1000 custom in EU, apparently built and then being ridden by a man named Jen who seems to be a big Moto Guzzi aficionado. Any chance youíre the same Jens?
It isn't me, but it could as well have been, love the Rory Gallagher tune!
