Do you have much riding experience with left foot brakes - right foot shift?
Nice find, treasure recovery is exciting. Do you have much riding experience with left foot brakes - right foot shift? I've been away from that set-up for such a long time the idea of re-adjusting scares me.
Is this how these are? I thought they were 4 speed, just opposite (up vs down for 1st gear)
Great looking project! We seem to be in the same boat, albeit, my boat might sitting higher in the water! I have mine torn down to the frame, the bores are, well,what was expected. The final drive is toast and the tank was lined, poorly and will need to be redone. Bit my chromeis aa tad better, maybe..
Glad to see you finally got a Guzzi Paul!Good luck on it!
Evan will you be at the National rally again this year? I'd love to show you the bike in person.
Unfortunately not, as I will still be in school then. I may have all of August off this year though, so I will be doing a large trip then. If I'm in the area, I'll give you a call, assuming the number you gave me at the rally is still accurate?
WELL SOME PEOPLE CAN WORRY OR NOT ABOUT THE SLUDGE TRAP, I RECENTLY TOOK A PLUG OUT OF ONE THAT HAD 17,000 MILES ON THE CLOCK, IT WAS MORE THAN 3/4 FULL, DO AS YOU LIKE. DonG ;-T
Yes, 920-810-0946 or 920-403-0555 (both end up at my cell phone). I would like to offer you a free place to stay, with awesome food and drink. Whatever your journey, ride safe and we'll meet again soon.
You should consider submitting your bike's VIN to the loop list here: http://www.thisoldtractor.com/moto_guzzi_loopframe_loop_list.php
I will be cleaning the sludge trap. My friend Stephen from Restoration Werks, and Curtis Harper both contacted me with suggestions. Both agreed it would be my best course of action to pull the engine at least partially apart before attempting a test run. Corrosion from sitting in a dirt floor shed was the main concern. Next week I'll have the bike in my shop, and I can soak it all down. I am not doing a complete restoration, but certainly don't want to harm the bike in any way. Feed back from this forum is greatly appreciated!!Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
If you have plans to clean out the sludge trap you will pretty much be doing a complete engine teardown to get at it. I agree. If its been sitting on a dirt floor in Wisconsin for ?? years at a very minimum you need to pull those heads. I would be willing to bet you have some flaking chrome going on. So get to work and have it done in time for the WI rally.
