Is it my poor eye sight or does the front fender seem to be awfully close in to the frame, like pushed back? I know my eldo has a lot more room than what that appears.

Boy, does that bring back memories. Go back 35 years, add a stock seat and take away the side covers. Make the paint a blue-green marine enamel brushed on, and take away a lot of rust, and you have my introduction to Guzzis. Oh, and no snow - San Francisco bay was a hundred yards away.
That's the combustion chamber of the turbo shaft. It is supposed to be on fire. You just don't usually see it but the case and fairing fell off.
