A 1000S from Michigan

Trying to tip toe around this, and still have it part of the discussion. On a very well known auction site, there is a beautiful
1991 Moto Guzzi 1000S. Looks like it was originally from GT Motors.

The owner has very good taste in Moto Guzziís.

Does it belong to anyone here.

The seller popped up on Facebook a couple of months back and was asking questions that led me to believe he didnít know what he had. Pure speculation on my part but Iíd guess this seller inherited a group of machines and is liquidating. Again based on my perception of his reaction. If Iím way off, itís not the first time. This is not to throw shade on the sale/seller in any manner. 

Does look like a lovely bike.

So I took a second look and there is a sticker in the usual position.

Just another point of reference: On my 1986 Le Mans IV, bought new from Larry Klein in September 1986, the GT Motors stickers are on the rear below the license plate and at the bottom of the right fork leg. Square corners, too.  :laugh:

I still have the bike but it's such a shame we don't still have Larry.

By the way, I'm in Michigan, not far from where the auction bike is located. I'd be happy to take a look at the bike on behalf of any list member.
