I like the Ambo of course but Honda has a better dealer network and parts availability...

 There was a 2nd gen S90 passed thru my hands about 15 years ago , hadn't ran in years , no interest in making it do so . passed it along to a friend , who sold it to some guy willing to spend the money . The work was done by a local specialist , was in his shop during the process , he had sourced parts from all over the world , still couldn't find a good high quality piston or ring set after looking for months . Some new stuff was apparently of such poor build quality he refused to use it .

We should probably look to the Mayans for advice on how to deal with shortages of gasoline and TP . Those folks had chronic shortages of both.

If the chrome cylinders have not been addressed on the Ambo then they really won't be within $235 of one another unless you are buying for static art.

The Guzzi is now at $5077 with less than a day to go.

"replacement of the cylinders, pistons, rings, wiring harness, clutch, tires, and battery as well as carburetor and transmission rebuilds."

No brainer. The Guzzi is a real bike.
No trees were harmed by the conveyance of this message, but a lot of electrons were seriously disturbed.

the Honda may have muscle, brain and heart. The Guzzi has all that, but also a SOUL. There's a difference.

This listing has a reserve. BaT doesn't announce when bidding has met the reserve, so we'll need to wait to the end to see if it sells.
