I would call Harpers, and Moto Guzzi Classics.  Harpers still has LOADS more parts than what they show on line.  For harder to find oddball stuff it is still best to call.

You can send it to the Netherlands and they have software to fix it to all 0's Place called Carmo or some such name.
You could buy a new dash.
Do a search this has been discussed extensively.

General Discussion / Need Parts for 91 1000s

Hello All
My rear turn signal bracket and license holder broke.  Part # 14 46 84 70.  Does any have a spare or knows where online that may have the part. I have already looked on Harpers, MG Cycle and Stein Dinse.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you

   Update on the Electrical problem. The wiring harness was replaced a now the bike starts and runs with the dash disconnected. With the dash hooked up it demands that I enter the code. The Griso service code is 12425 and the default user code is 00000, none of which works. Still getting incorrect code message. Any ideas on finding out how to extract the user code? My other Frankenstein CARC bike which was put together by the same shop  has a user code of other than 00000.

Here is mine based on a 98 EV 1100. Not as straightforward as one would think but easier when done on an external fuel pump Guzzi like the 98 EV with the P8. On that note, mine is for sale of anyone is interested...

Paint removal is a real challenge! I have had some luck with soda blasting using high pressure, at least 80psi constant but it can still be tough to get paint off. There is a commercial stripper available for removing powder coatings that I have bought from Eastwood Automotive, it will remove anything but the fumes are terrible and I would finish it with soda blasting.
I did clean a Ducati bevel twin motor once, out of the frame and I sealed over any openings with silicone left to dry for a couple days. I then used fine glass bead at high pressure followed by soda blast to soften up the surface sheen left by the glass.

I felt completely useless to society when I retired!  Itís hard to get used to!

I definitely never had that problem. FDR did me some big favors creating SS and supporting the unions, so I feel obligated to fulfill his vision of aging with dignity. :laugh:

If you need to fill hours and feel useful there is always volunteer work. If I did, I would hook up with a museum that restores old  mechanical stuff.

you are correct. only special models like Scurra and rosso mandello had the single disc.

Add Tenni to the list.

Definitely consider heading far north to Wyoming and Montana for epic riding!!
Chief Joseph highway
Bear tooth
Lolo pass to Lewiston following Lewis & Clark trail
Going to the Sun in Glacier

Of course you could do those next year also on the way to the National in Oregon too!!

BTDT a couple of times and would do them again. Some of my very favorite motorcycle roads..
