I am certainly biased, but the Call II skunk is still the classiest Guzzi ever.

LOL Kidding.  That is a steal for anyone wanting a magic carpet ride...... All kidding aside, I'd be looking for at least $6K for one that clean with those upgrades. That would be quite the blessing for a forum member, but I think you are shorting yourself unless there are issues with the Cal II platform I am unaware of.

My thoughts exactly. I actually saw this bike a couple weeks ago and it's all that.

OMG, THAT  price for THAT Cal II Auto, now why didn't I think of just fishing here casually for a Convert? Or a 1000S? Congrats, Gusable, you just bypassed the deficiencies in the Convert platform (short swingarm, ineffective engine breathing, possible sheet-metal flywheel, non-existent charging system...) and stepped right up to the best you could get (apologies to Convert owners, I've owned several). Except the Convert has a MUCH more comfortable saddle, but hey, you can deal with it....

Put me in 3rd, behind Gusable and spmoto, should either change their minds.
I can bring cash and pick up at your earliest convenience, when and wherever that may be. :cool:

For the record ran it by Deb and had no idea she was as attached to the Cal II as she was, and she was totallly against us getting rid of it.  So guess we're going to hold on to it for bit more.  Sorrry for any confusion, but happy moto wife, happy life.

I’m telling yuh, we should stop buying bikes and trade them amongst ourselves…some regional location you can ride into, park your Guzzi, walk around checking them out, and try another….

“That’s great Sarge, I’m using Sam’s SPNT for awhile…”

“I’m wondering if there’s another Breva w bags on it…”

“Steve brought one in last week when he borrowed the Sporti..”
