A hell of a lot of talking and no commitment.
In Oz, some bugger would just get off his arse and say " no worries, I'll get the ute and a slab " and we'll go.
Honestly, how far is it..?

 Funny you should ask , the guy who has it now said he would give it a quick bath and post a pic . Maybe tomorrow or Sunday . This isn't a museum piece , it has patina , but the price is right .

I'm a free agent right now, (read as broke and unemployed) but I'm in for $30. Who will top my bid ? I'll mail a check this weekend.

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.

Bump.  Are we making progress to getting the bike to middle America for the fix up?

Still wanting to see a picture!
The best part of riding a motorcycle is to tilt the horizon and to lift the front coming out of a corner and to drift the back end powering thru loose dirt and to catch a little air topping a hill and... yeah it's all good!

Alright , I have a mailing address for donations towards the project . A check is fine , but please indicate in a quick note what it is for , and give me a screen name also . If you want part of it to go directly to Luap please let me know , this is a group effort .

  Please note this is a different address than we used for CV last year , our Post Office is moving and the old number is no longer valid . Thanks

 Thanks to those of you offering support  :bow:

What about setting up Paypal account and we all contribute $10.00. 50 contributions will solve the shipping problem. Count me in if you decide to go with this idea.
That's the one..!

 Paypal is for you young whippersnappers , plus it leaves an electronic footprint . Some of us are shy or in the witness protection program .

 Besides , how hard is it to write a check and drop it in the post ? :grin:

Dusty, Dusty, Dusty...always I tell you 'Be what you is, not what you is not...folks what do this have the happiest lot!'

you can create a PayPal account with ANY email address...doesn't have to point to you or your location...just an account YOU have access to...

This is not rocket science!    :cool:

Dusty the Dinosaur!  Hhmmm I think we could turn that into a plush toy for the kiddo!

But Chris is right about the PayPal it is effortless!

Since I�m already headed to the shipping store, will drop a check off as well...

 There is an old Mexican parable that goes like this .

 An old Mexican fisherman goes out to sea every morning at daybreak in his ancient wooden boat,  fishes for a few hours until he has caught enough fish to make his day , then goes home to help his family with chores and play with his grandchildren . He laughs easily , and is happy and content .

 One day a wealthy American begins studying the old Mexican fisherman's routine and decides to advise the fisherman on how to be more successful . He tells the Mexican gentleman that he admires his dedication , and if he would only obtain a more modern boat and equipment and work harder for a few years he could then have the time to play with his grandchildren .

 I am the fisherman .

That's some goofy looking money right there,  Dusty.   Dead presidents don't wear glasses.   Be careful with it.  :laugh:

I'm up for a road trip but I have no ute.  If someone is inclined to drive and needs a wingman let me know.
It may interest you to know Rodekyll that not everything revolves around the Divided States of America.
The image of the "President" is actually that of an Australian immigrant that went on to become a highly successful business person and philanthropist.
We could do with a few more like her here on Wildguzzi in exchange for a few freeloaders in for a cheap ride at others expense.
Just sayin'.
Or were you joking...?

 Can we make some attempt at staying on point here ?

 If you don't want to participate , then don't . No one is twisting anyone's arms , this is purely voluntary , in fact the idea of a fundraiser was raised by a member who sees this as worthwhile. Either you agree , or you don't , no need to argue the hows or whys . Understand ?

 I just planted the seed and stood back . The group has watered and cared for the result . Remember , Guzzi4me (Jeff) is donating the the motorbike , Gliderjohn is providing a very nice workshop and his hospitality , GJ's wife will put up with us  :laugh: Motochcuck250 and Flynguzzi are providing their mechanical skills , fubarguzzi will keep us entertained , and the "family" seems willing to help finance the project . Even Marley the dog will assist by wagging his tail and being the great dog that he is . Likely I will just be in the way .

Greetings all!

Finally got a chance to take some pics.















As you can see she is no garage queen! The seat needs recovering but other than that she's in pretty good shape for 99k miles. Note the National Cycle bag mounts. They go with her.

Will also mount this windshield. Had to take it off for storage space requirements.





No snide comments about my junky garage....seems my daughter thinks it's her personal storage space!! Which I guess it is!! At least Laurie can get her Outback in the garage still...

Anyway, thanks to everyone for their interest and support. I do believe this will be a good daily rider for someone and thanks to Dusty for co-ordinating this. This Guzzi community is like no other!

Ride safe and often,

Jeff
