Title: Show me your Guzzi - Not Safe for Dial Up
Post by: guzzi_sean on October 18, 2008, 12:53:30 PM
Its time to put corporate shenanigans, dealership woes, and market prognostications aside for a little while, and focus on that which brings us together.  Moto Guzzi.  Everyone here has an expert opinion when it comes to their OWN bike(s), so, show me your Guzzi, and tell me about it.  Let's associate a bike with the name.

I'll start:

Its a 2000 Quota 1100ES.  I've owned it since new, purchased in 2001.  It's pretty much stock except for happy trails bag mounts and Givi bags, and a Sun rear rim.  Only thing wrong with it is that it doesn't have enough miles.

Here's mine, a 2001 Jackal;

The screen, rack and bags come from an EV. It has heated grips, twin fiam horns, footboards from Harpers. The seat has been rebuilt and with the Airhawk is now good for a tankfull several times.
The cush drive has been altered so it works as per the Danish Guzzitech site. I have run an extra earth from the regulator and fitted new relays. It now has a TomTom Rider 2 Satnav.
I have done 33,000 miles on it from new, but 8,000 of that was this year, since I retired i have been riding more.
This year I did a long European trip taking in 3 Guzzi and 2 other bike rallies. The rallies were in Belgium, Norway, Netherlands, Montcom SW France and near Hamburg Germany. Total mileage was over 5000. I love the bike, I want a new Guzzi as soon as I can arrange some finance, but I don't think I could sell the Jackal unless I knew for sure the buyer would look after it.
This year (firmly holding a piece of wood as I say this) it became the most reliable bike I have ever owned, n damn near 50 years of riding. The Jackal has for 7 years, always got me where I was headed, the previous most reliable were two BMW's each I kept for 7 years and both had to be recovered, one twice.
Virtually all my riding is to bike rallies, this year I have done 12 so far.

I've shown her off before, but since you give me the excuse...

1979 1000SP: Found her in 2005. Carbs, brakes, forks, electrics redone, new dash, Raask handlebar, Harper seat and rear rack, air shocks, Hannigan Classic sidecar with electric camber installed. She is a work in progress, and my best friend...

With Firth Design Group Piranha fairing:

This is my 99 Bassa, I would not consider myself a cruiser guy. My 12 yearold son never liked long rides until a ride on a borrowed cruiser. I worked part time at a Guzzi dealer when the Bassa's came out & loved the bikes. With the need to go fast in the twistys a Guzzi cruiser was the only choice for me. The Bassa is fast becoming my favorite ride & my daily bike.
I have added fully floating 5.5mm rotors. HyperPro fork springs, YSS shocks.
The Harpers floor boards have made longer rides less painfull. Best of all my son likes riding now, more riding time for dad. ;D

Bill, That is one sweet rig! I have always wanted a sidecar rig but never seem to have the extra cash. Maybe I will put one on the
Bassa after I buy that Cali vintage I have been eying.

I don't have the extra cash either; and my car is an MG Midget. Between the two, I often find myself light in the wallet, but smiling a lot...

edit: I like that Bassa, but tell us the plans for the project...

here's my pride and joy- a '00 jackal, on her first day home. note the presence of the tourquemada seat, the oddly bent (to me) handlebars, and the existance of the charcoal canisters:

(http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb167/paulinrochester/08-19-2007091734pm.jpg)

that was october 2000. i seem to be one of the few who poneyed up for the second front brake.

this january, there was an extraordinarily nice day, so we went for a ride (the guy in the backgound elected not to come along):

(http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb167/paulinrochester/100_1593.jpg)

the russel seat, the lower handlebars, and the set back peg mounts ( i'm not sure from which) all make this, to me, the best bike i could have.
not to say i would turn down a 1200 sport, mind......

This is my first Guzzi, a 1999 EV.  I bought it last Christmas with 15,000 on the odometer, after a friend dropped it off and suggested I "Test ride it for a few weeks".  After sorting out some electrical problems it has been a great bike.  I turned 20,000 miles Friday, so it hasn't been a high miles summer.  The bike has a Corbin double saddle, Givi Maxia box on top and a pair of 42 liter Kappas.  That big wart on the side is a 1995 Motorvation Formula II sidecar  :D

The project started as 850T, my plan is to not make a copy of a V7 sport or a 750s. I took what I think are the best features,  colors & built it to my tastes.
950cc, balanced rotating mass, ram clutch & flywheel, megacycle x10 cam, delorto 36mm carbs, new valves, guides, seats, port work.
dyna ignition, reworked wiring harness & modern fuse block. 
I hope to have it on the road soon.

At the 2005 West Virginia National

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3073/2793986883_8b556eff12_b.jpg)

Just after the Wisconsin Rally this year.

It's a 2001 V11 Sport that I bought in 2004.  Stock AFAIK besides the Teckno bags and two bent rims that will be fixed this winter if the money works out.  Used to have heated grips but I replaced them with some softer grips.  (I wear gloves anyway)  Want to do a lot of upgrades in the future (part of why I'm here) including but not limited to pipes, seat, HB bags, and paint and powdercoat work thanks to years of living on gravel roads.  But I have been very satisfied with her stock so far so I'm not in too big of a hurry.  Currently at 30k miles most of them put on by me and looking forward to a lot more.  Planning on the 2010 National if I'm not broke by then.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3131/2795193073_07fd621fd1_b.jpg)

And this is my other Guzzi.  '98 EV wrecked in '03.  Messed me up worse than the bike.  Hopefully both of us will be back to 100% or better some day.  I'm either rebuilding it or pulling the motor and making a cafe project with it as I miss my old 850T.  Of course my limited mechanical knowledge, youth, and profession are holding me back from completing this so far.  I have no pics of my older Guzzi or my Yamaha scanned on the computer yet but stay tuned.

My first Guzzi. 2001 Cal Special bought new from Wilson's in fresno who dropped Guzzi a few months after I bought it. It's going on 40k and has been dead reliable. Wilbers shocks, Mistral muffs, Guzzitech crossover, Jet hot coated headers, modified airbox, custom mapped PC3, Givi windscreen, HB bags, etc.



(http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/9307/dscn1714wf6.jpg)

87 Lemans 1000 that I picked up about a year and a half ago. Suffered several electrical gremlins that all were all failed crimp connections. Seems to be reliable now.
Basically stock with K&N's, Dyna 3, Corbin Seat, and Guzzitech crossover. Sure would love to find some Ago reatsets for it and some Lafranconi silencers.

Not much to tell really. It's my Guzzi. Been through thick and thin. It has taken me places I never would have seen otherwise and managed to leave me stranded when least expected... but only a couple of times. It is after all a Guzzi. It has the most character of any bike I've owned and It'll reside in my garage until I can no longer throw a leg over it. Then I'll pass it on to my son. Kind of payback for having been a teenager at one time. Besides, he likes it. I guess we're both gluttons for punishment. Like all great motorcycles the Goose gives more pleasure than it takes.  ;D

Title: Re: Show me your Guzzi - a V65 Lario
Post by: Trevor G on October 19, 2008, 12:31:29 AM
Here's my running Lario.

Bought in 2002 with 47,000 km and spent a lot of time fixing all the little niggles.  PO had sprayed WD40 on the brake disks to stop them rusting - the only problem with that is it also stopped the brakes from working.  Lots of other things to do as well.

Did over 10,000 km but is currently not in regular use, pending exhaust valve replacement.  Don't want to destroy a cylinder head now, do we!  ;-)

Could only get standard V65 mufflers at the time, but they will now clear the bags I purchased from the US via eBay recently.  Don't believe in spoiling a good bike with bags but...

Handlebars are swan neck touring rise, instead of the factory clip-ons. 

Cheers  ;-)

Beautiful shots, all, but Guzzis are best appreciated at speed. That usually means they are all alone at the frotn of the pack, as my Eldo so often finds itself. Phots of such are few, unfortunately.

Here's mine packed up for the trip to the Indy MotoGP last month. Did 850 miles the Thurs before the race with a 100 mile run into the speedway Fri. morning. Then the Mon after the race I did the whole 957 miles back to Newport RI. Blown tailight bulb Thurs night was the only thing that went wrong.  Presently looking for an 850t or Lemans to kill the craving for a vintage Guzzi.                                                                                                                    (http://img129.imageshack.us/img129/51/picture3032ee2.jpg) (http://imageshack.us)

Does anyone else think that is the most wonderful color scheme out?  (Apart from the black rocker covers?)

Is it a factory scheme?

Maybe I like it because that's how the 500 Nuovo Falcone came out in australia.  I bought one...

Except for the red frame, it's the factory V7 Special paint scheme. I did the frame red because of the civilian Nuovo Falcone. Most people like the (wrinkle) black valve covers (the ribs are polished and the Moto Guzzi script filled in red) - the instrument housing and generator belt cover are painted to match. Mostly, I was just sick of polishing... ;D

Are you kiddin'?  Man I don't care!  I grew up on a farm!  My dads bike stayed clean very little.  He took great pride in polishing it and it did look fantastic glimmering in the sun.  But with seven miles of gravel to the next paved road it was kinda pointless to wash it too much.  By far my favorite color scheme for the california line.  Of course I'm biased.  Unfortunately my parents got divorced a few years ago and mom took the goose.  I have no idea where it is.  She won't give it to me cause she knows I'd give it back to dad.  ::)  Oh I miss that bike so.  I hope beyond hope it isn't rotting away in a shed somewhere.

Kev, Thank You, Thank You ,Thank you.  For posting this picture. I had one of those moments of "Eureka that's It" after seeing it and I feel kinda dumb. I was trying to figure out how I would get 3 bikes (3 when the V7C comes in ) and a little 49cc scooter in the garage along with (to keep the better half happy) a behemoth Kia Sedona. The light bulb just went on in my dim brain. Thanks again !

Yes it is a 2 car garage.

Hi Kev m!

Nice photos and collection! :) :) 8) 8)  I thought you had a Road King (?), but I see that's a late model 1200 (?) Sporty there instead! 

How do you like it, (now 6-speed / rubber-mounted, etc.), compared to the Road King? 

I also like their retro-looking "Nightster" model, but I sure hope they bring that 1200R model to the USA. :)
Title: Re: Show me your Guzzi
Post by: JJ on October 21, 2008, 01:24:31 PM
Kev m -

Thanks for your perspective on the BT's and the CORRECTIONS on the Sporty's.  I also agree with you assessment on the Road King overall. :)

For two-up, long-distance riding / sport touring, the Road King is a very versatile motorcycle and hard to beat, overall.  

The 96' cubic inch motor and 6-speed is nice.  8) 8) 8)  However, they are still a bit "portly" at 770 lbs., but you don't really feel it at all, once you get moving.

Over the last 15 years, I have owned Beemer's and Guzzi's and 4 Big Twin Harleys:  '88 FLH-S, '92-FLH-S, '95 Road King, and now my current '07 Road King.

 I upgraded to 6-caliper Performance Machine brakes up front, (stock are 4 calipers), which improved stopping power >30%.  

I also added a Stage-1 Screamin' Eagle kit - slip-on mufflers (not much louder than stock) and a restrictive air-cleaner.  This is what the local police use on their Road Kings around here. About 8-HP more and you can feel it on the freeways.

The new '09 Road King has the new improved frame (as you have posted and talked about) and standard ABS brakes. You should check this out if you are thinking about a new one.  :) :) :)  Here are my three current bikes:

'07 Harley Road King FLHR
83 Moto Guzzi 850 Le Mans-III
78 BMW R100RS "Motorsport Edition"

I don't know exactly the brand name of the pipes, and I could not see any name stamped on them.  They sound great and are not really that loud, though I imagine that would be a matter of perception.  I have some oringinal competziones that are so loud I wont even put them on.  I got the bike from a friend of mine, he picked it up in Naples and had some Italian friend restore it for him.  The blinkers are called Cat Eyes and are aftermarket sold here in Germany.

That fairing ended up in the bin a couple of years ago  as it was a bit battered :-\ The clocks were sold separately.

The whole instrument setup is completely different to the standard Cali, plus indicators, headlamp, ignition key switch, indicators, mirrors, handlebar clamp, front grille are different and maybe more things that I've forgotten.

     Hmmm, I've put over 100,000 miles on in the last 7 years in the Tampa area. Ping me off-list and I'll show you around.  Guzzidad@aol.com

I will do that shortly...but in another thread.  I don't want to clutter up this awesome thread with my spam. 
Andy - yes, I will build another once things straighten out.  I still have a LM1 and a couple of Ex-racebike V7 Sports tucked away to fill the void.  I know that you can tell how tough this is for me because you have known this bike for a while.

Here is my 1973 Eldorado.  Only 167K miles. Bought it from Gene Jones in Eldorado Arkansas in 1996. Restored by me from the ground up in 2001.  Sadly, I've only put 13K on it in the last 7 years, but I rode the heck out of it for 5 years (until the EV came along). 

(http://www.wildguzzi.com/pics/mygirls.jpg)
Here is my 98 EV with my girls on it (in 2001).  I totaled it in 2003 on my way to the pilgrimage to Italy, Tx.  Rebuilt it that winter and put it back on the road in the Spring of 2004.  Have put 83K on it since I bought it "new" in 2000 when it had only 3K on the clock.

Purchased from a guy in PA right?

If so, I've got pictures of it from back when it was Gray.

Nice looker BTW...

Kev
Grey? For some reason I thought it used to be red! :) I am not picky when it comes to buying a used vehicle- it is hard to find what you need in any color, but this bike looks good. I am a fan of minimalistic design and I Warrens idea of blackening out various grey/ bare alloy/ steel/ chrome pieces sits very well with me.

These are our first Moto Guzzis and the Nevada is Carols first bike ever.
I personally wanted one for a while when I was younger back in Phoenix (I spent some years there in the '70s). Tho motor cops had some Eldos and the I believe, T3s, but alas, it just wasn't in the cards. Then came real life, kids, and everything that goes with them including being broke. Let's skip forward to the present. When we shopped for a bike for my wife (we had been riding a Yamaha set up well for two which I still have), the weight and other dimensions coupled with the engine size of the Nevada brought us to our local Guzzi dealership. It was there that all coveting of the old cop bikes in Phoenix returned.
These bikes really run and in no way am I disappointed with our purchase.

Paul;
I think your "Daytona" looks even better with the new muffler.
Is it street legal?

Your bike looks a bit like the MGS01, doesn't it?

I think I know what Guzzi ought to do with its rumoured 1400 cc engine ....
Stuff it into the MGS01 or the old Daytona
It would sell like hotcakes on looks alone. Lots of people don't need 170 hp

I love the video you did with this bike, It just captures "it"

In pieces for ?

Thanks...

Yeah, I wanted to give the frame some fresh paint, fix a few other minor issues...  I just haven't had much time to get it done, and with the pending move, I'll need to 'finish' later than I wanted.

here's a link to that vid btw.. ;)

My Centauro. Saved it from an early grave. The original owner rode it hard, never titled it, and wrecked it a few times. I got it legal, and did all the paint, repair and pretty up work myself.

In action last weekend in the mountains of north GA before heading down to Barber for the Vintage races. Wore out a pair of shoes dragging the toes in the mountains.

84 SP 1000 Cafe project. GSXR front brakes, Ducati front master cylinder, GXXR rearsets, custom batery box, modified BUB pipes from the Centauro and many other modifications. Coming along nicely, and should be done in a few months.... Now that I learned how to post pics, I will put up more as it progresses.

There never has been a roller coaster built as fun as that road. I stayed in a cabin right there in that curve. It is fun just to sit and watch people go by on the deck. For anyone planning a trip to the area, that is the place to stay...

My girlfriend shot a video riding with me further north on 129 while riding deals gap. I was chasing a few friends and the sound is pretty fair. I want to post it on youtube or something, and put a link here so everyone can see it. She did a pretty good job considering the moving around going on in all those curves!

If the weather cooperates, I plan to ride it to the DeKalb breakfast this Saturday.  If not, I'll ride the EV instead.

And you can always come up and take a peek; or we could meet for a cuppa.

Hi guys

I've been lurking here for a while, but this thread has prompted me to show you my Le Mans.  It's the first guzzi I've ever owned or ridden, so it's all new to me.  It's replaced a Ducati 888SP which I owned for five years, so it feels a bit strange at the moment.  All the same, I'm liking its lazy manner and the rhythmic beat from its exhaust.  It's had a full ground-up restoration.

Steve


ps.  Apologies for the missing photos.  Imageshack having problems??

Tell me about your run-in with "The Man".

Where were you?  What were you doing?

Left the Cliffhouse at a nice pace going back through Jasper.  Was with another rider on a Harley bagger.  We followed all speed limits and laws in Jasper.  Once outside of town there was a car in front of us at a speed of under twenty or so miles an hour.  So I looked over at Harley rider and said, shall we pass?  It was double yellow, but very straight for a while.  No oncoming traffic.  As soon as we passed the car and I shifted into third, the cop was on top of us.  He explained that we doing seventy miles an hour (no way in second gear does my bike do seventy), we passed a car in a double yellow and we were endangering lives.  We had to sit in the ditch for a good hour before he told us he wanted to lock us up, but they didn't have room in their jail.  He also wanted to take our "machines" away so we would never mis-use them again.  So he gave us each a ticket for all three violations and sent us on our way.  I admit we were speeding and passed in a double yellow, but in no way were we unsafe.  Did I forget to mention that right before we came down the side of the mountain into Jasper a group of guys on Ducati's and Jap sportbikes tore that town up?  They were wheeling through the whole town and if the front tire wasn't up in the air, the rear was smoking. 

It's no big deal for me.  Just an experience since the county has no record of my ticket.  They said "sometimes tickets are lost".  Weird huh?

Left the Cliffhouse at a nice pace going back through Jasper.  Was with another rider on a Harley bagger.  We followed all speed limits and laws in Jasper.  Once outside of town there was a car in front of us at a speed of under twenty or so miles an hour.  So I looked over at Harley rider and said, shall we pass?  It was double yellow, but very straight for a while.  No oncoming traffic.  As soon as we passed the car and I shifted into third, the cop was on top of us.  He explained that we doing seventy miles an hour (no way in second gear does my bike do seventy), we passed a car in a double yellow and we were endangering lives.  We had to sit in the ditch for a good hour before he told us he wanted to lock us up, but they didn't have room in their jail.  He also wanted to take our "machines" away so we would never mis-use them again.  So he gave us each a ticket for all three violations and sent us on our way.  I admit we were speeding and passed in a double yellow, but in no way were we unsafe.  Did I forget to mention that right before we came down the side of the mountain into Jasper a group of guys on Ducati's and Jap sportbikes tore that town up?  They were wheeling through the whole town and if the front tire wasn't up in the air, the rear was smoking. 

It's no big deal for me.  Just an experience since the county has no record of my ticket.  They said "sometimes tickets are lost".  Weird huh?

I was told by the P.O. never to take this bike into Canada as it is wanted by the RCMP  ;D

Its time to put corporate shenanigans, dealership woes, and market prognostications aside for a little while, and focus on that which brings us together.  Moto Guzzi.  Everyone here has an expert opinion when it comes to their OWN bike(s), so, show me your Guzzi, and tell me about it.  Let's associate a bike with the name.

I'll start:

Its a 2000 Quota 1100ES.  I've owned it since new, purchased in 2001.  It's pretty much stock except for happy trails bag mounts and Givi bags, and a Sun rear rim.  Only thing wrong with it is that it doesn't have enough miles.

That Quota is awesome.  I'm not too familiar with the Guzzi heritage.  Tell me about year, engine size, etc.

Thanks ;D  This is a 2000 Quota 1100.  I believe it was only imported into the US in 2000.  A 1000 cc version had been in the Moto Guzzi line up for several years before, but I don't believe they were imported.  Maybe someone more knowledgeable than me can correct me if I'm wrong.

Its definitely a love hate motorcycle, you either love it or you hate it.  She certainly had teething pains, but she's pretty well sorted know and has been incredibly fun to ride this past season.  There's lots of great Quota information on Greg Bender's website if you want more...

Bad luck.  There aren't but about two police cars patroling that county.  One county deputy, one State Trooper.

There have been A LOT of crashes over there the past couple of years, so they tend to lecture anyone they talk to...

HWY 127 is a bike magnet and sees most of the mishaps.

Newbie post here.  I've only owned my '04 Breva v750ie since the end of February; but previous (first) owner only put 1200 miles on it.  I purchased it from local M-G dealer, RPM Cycle (http://www.rpmcycletx.com/) in Farmers Branch, TX, where it had been traded toward a new Triumph Tiger.  Currently still stock except for engine guards and SAE power cable that were on it when I got it.  Currently getting back into riding after effectively being away from it the last couple of years and trying to figure out how to reconcile my need for a practical commuter/short distance tourer with my very strict ideas about motorcycle aesthetics (i.e. I think most windshields, panniers, topcases, etc. completely ruin the looks of a bike).  These pics were taken the day I picked it up:

My 2004 Breva, apparently the only silver one Guzzi ever made - everybody else seems to have red ones, with the occasional black one thrown in.  Pretty much stock, other than the obvious accessories, the seat, and a few odds and ends, not visible, intended to make it more comfortable, more practical, or safer - no go-faster tweaks, it can go faster than I can as it is.  A simple, sweet, well-mannered ride, everything I want in a motorcycle (well, apart from the seized gearbox ....)

My '81 CX100. I built it from a basket case. A couple of mysteries: Why the Eldo valve covers? I love 'em, and have no idea why the p.o. had them. Note the LMI tank. That generic aftermarket bikini fairing has been removed, with a LMI fairing taking its place. I've replaced the clip-ons with low tubular bars, and am in the process of swapping out the cast wheels for spoked Borranis. The bike runs great, and will be at the National in June.

Hey Bill,
What happened to your other front brake on that EV ?
The wheels were swapped with a 2000 Jackal before I bought it last September. I traded my T and a couple of grand for it. Mph tweaked it before I left for the Gaggle. Great running machine, I've added a few items for touring (seat, highway pegs, bar risers and a Laminar Lip. I just have a few more try out adjustments with the Lip. I kinda like the single front brake myself. 
See you down the road.

Ex: dealer demo bike which I traded my Breva 750 in for after 2 years of ownership because my dealer kept letting me use this when mine went in for service and I became addicted!

Great bike, comfortable, torquey, plenty fast enough and copes well with the British winters.

I've added an MG screen, hot grips (+ handlebar muffs in the winter), MG tank bag and upgraded the horn to twin Stebel Magnums.

Now, if I could find this hot dog trailer, posted recently by Comendatore, I would have a great photo op. ;D(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-A615_49FF1E1A.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-A615_49FF1E1A.html)(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-02C4_49FF1E1A.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-02C4_49FF1E1A.html)

Better part of the last half of my summer was spent working late nights on this, trying to figure out why the alternator wasn't charging...ran every test my dad and I could think of, plus everything in the Guzziology and from here.  Had to take a break when I went back to school for the winter and managed to snap a banjo  :o  ... replacements are in though, and I finally figured out that we'd wired up the rectifier wrong :-[  so with any luck I'll be out this weekend!

My bike is a '09 Moto Guzzi Bellagio. They were introduced in Europe in mat black only in 2006. For 2009 there have been some revisions including a new color scheme as you can see and a lower rear ride height. The engine is available on the Bellagio only and is 935 cc. I believe that the bike is not imported into the US. I cannot understand why as it is a peach of a bike which goes great, stops well (double front discs) handles better than many so called sports bikes and of course is drop dead gorgeous! The "power cruiser" styling would, in my opinion, be perfect for the US. Go figure! Anyway I'm glad that you like it!  :)

Whacky!  What is that fairing?

It is off of a 2001 Suzuki Marauder VZ800...Really well made, with excellent fairing stays.

(http://gpbikes.com/inventory/images/01vz800marauder402.JPG)


The best part was that the fairing was originally Red, and I did not have to paint it at all...

The color match to my CX100's Red is almost perfect... 8)

Here's mine, started life as a 1976 T-3. I bought it in 2002 and made it look like the one I bought in 1974 and wish I hadn't sold.

Born in March of 2007, I've had this Norge in the slower Silver Colour since August of '07. Have not made peace with the seat so it only has a little over 33,000 miles.

Search the archives for Zoom Zoom's comments about the Russell Day Long he installed on his Norge. Absolute love.

Greetings from Finland,

here's a pic of a '92 Cali III that I bought a week ago. PO had re-painted tank / side covers and also re-painted Anniversary leather seat (D'OH!); both will be sorted out during next winter. 80.000 km and well taken care of.

Before I had a '97 Centauro and an '82 Monza so not completely a "Guzzi virgin"...

At least for me I hardly ever see a number of them out of storage at the same time.  Like you only when cleaning up.  Gotta do the garage eventually.  Dreading that.  Strange in the sense of not being a normal thing not in the sense of "weird".  On a normal basis only one or two out of the garage or patio.

The old red Ambo is a bike I had ridden as a rat bike from '80 up till '89 and when I had about 8 months off and a bug up my butt to do something with it. It went from rat bike to "Peoples Choice" at the '89 Euro West Rally in Prineville Oregon. At the time if there was a show called Pimp My Bike then I'm sure they would have devoted an episode to me. Sold it back in '04 and then last year wanted to be back on a bike so I picked up the V7 Sport from MG Classics... hence my user name "Goosed Again". Found that I really was more of a cruiser guy (plus I like to tinker) so I just got the Eldo off Fleabay about a month ago and boy am I happy to be back on a goose!(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-C8C6_4A3EA1CD.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-C8C6_4A3EA1CD.html)(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-C45C_4A3EA1CD.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-C45C_4A3EA1CD.html)(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-CFEB_4A3EA1CD.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-CFEB_4A3EA1CD.html)(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-3767_4A3EA1CD.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-3767_4A3EA1CD.html)

FInally found a picture of my bike.  I had to sort through 20,000 digital shots of my kids taking pictures of themselves while doing silly hand signs to find this one.

Something I need to rectify.  The number of pictures that is and not the kids.

Stock except for the Shadow exhaust.  It has a unique, deep note that no other bike matches.

Yea, tossed it up there to finance a bit of property up in Oregon just outside of Jacksonville. Great bike but I really don't need 2 plus like I said "just more of a cruiser" guy these days.

Last time i checked with oil no fuel 189 kg

The stock wheels are so so heavy that makes a huge difference,and the MV fork although its 50mm is much lighter then stock.

Getting rid of the injection system also helps ::)

Hi all, new here,
My Nero, "4:20". Plenty of mod's, most unseen. Ride it most every day as a "commuter" 9-10 monthes a year in N. Illinois. Just did 772 miles in just under 25 hours, avoiding all highways, till the "end burn" home, an absolute f#@*ing blast!!! I bought her sight unseen (pictures only) 3 seasons ago, having never ridden a Guzzi. I just KNEW it was for me...It's been more...

This may have been the costliest thread ever.  Too many ideas as to what to do next.  Windshield, seat, the complete horsepower upgrade (Lafranconi's, air filter, etc)

Not the purdiest bike in the thread, but the purdiest one in my garage. :)

Love at first sight:

Here are a couple of new additions to the garage.  The bumble bee California 1100 carb next to my Quota belongs to my Dad.  We've been riding together quite a bit lately, its nice.  We've been catching up on some maintenance items, only some of it in restaurant parking lots.

This next one I just pulled out of the local auto salvage yard for next to nothing.  Its an 84 LeMans III, and in pretty good shape considering.  I call her madame trash heap.

Red forks cause I didn't take the time to get them off for painting when I did the rest of the bike  :)

Maund will do a seat for any bike.  Just send him yours and he'll redo it in just about any way you want, any color combo.  Browse the pics section to see samples.

I’m Jos, 46 years old and live near Amsterdam, Netherlands.
I Registered last night as “FastFriend”
Reason:  my last name “Vriend” is “friend” in English language and I guess you know what “fast” sounds like ;-)
I found your forum by Googling V11 sport, like to check it out!

I bought my fisth Guzzi last februari, (driving Honda motorcycles since 1991)
It’s a 2001 V11 le mans, bought it with 104K km and put on 3K now (of which 2 in France last June, nice ride!)
It has some adjustments made by the last owner (exhaust, power filters and electrics) mechanically had its maintenance by a dealer and optically a little neglected (it has this bumper sticker “for intensive users only”)
Planning on some adjustments (superbike handlebars and naked look)

I like to visit the Midwest, have done that 3 times now, just last year with my 16year old son, and in Seattle we met a guy whith this bike (Coppa Italia colour sceme)
He came from Italy and borrowed this bike from a friend in California. I never dreamd that day of owning one myself.

That should be a 12 to 15 hour run...

I stayed off any major highways, opting for purposefully getting lost on a lot of little cool roads with small towns. Also includes gassing up and stretching, meals/a few road pops and 3 1/2 hours sleep. It wasn't so much of a run, as a time to let the mind unwind...Here's Pikes Peak Observation deck just before, and at sunrise...almost a religious experience...

A little Spam on the side, but...

Do you need a copy of the factory Parts Manual for your TVR? It's a 2500M, isn't it?

I made a copy from when I had my TVR, converted it to a PDF file and burned some copies to disc. PM if you'd like one.

Hi,

Some earlier older photos of my 86 Le Mans 1000.. now has round headlight & Givi fairing , going strong after 16 years of ownership & a couple 100 000kms. Just serviced ready for the run to Moto GP at Phillip Island. Also picof 4 pots conversion off early Sport 1100 converted to original 270mm discs... best mod I've made, she stops well instead of "sedating slowly" like when I 1st got her. A different slant on Aussie home brew capabilities ;)

Post by: IceBlue on October 26, 2009, 05:45:36 AM
Hi Kev
Thank you for the kind words.
To put it brief, she is a blast.
She does not have the top end power of the Lario. I'll fix that later with the 8 valve 750, I'm rebuilding.
She is rock solid on the roads, and handles great. She will do 110Mph, but is a blast @ 75-80Mph.
She has a flat torque line like the V7C/Nevada, and can go on and on and has enough power on both the highways, freeways and in the city.

I bought her in Holland for 500€. The PO was fet-up with her, as she had blown the big-end.
It later appeared, that he had run her dry of oil.
I bought her to sell her again and make a buck.
I found out that she was rare - only around 300 ever made.
Then I took her for the first ride after having replaced the big-end and bearings - and that turned everything around.
SHE BECAME A KEEPER.
Hard to explain to the wiphy, but she is now a highly valued member of my small block collection.
My preferred ride, although I enjoy all my baby geese.

The V65 is such a wonderfull all round bike.
The V65 mill has a few more ponies than the 48hp of the 750. (52hp)
Torque line slightly more narrow, but still a real fun bike to ride.
Actually - the V65 is by some perceived to be the most efficient version of the small block mills.

Great looking bike Nick! Looks like it just left Mandello!
Great detailing - do you have time to give my geese a workover  ;D :D ;)

Love that bike and setup. Where did you get those great racks that fit over top of the hard side bags? You could carry a ton of gear set up like that. Something like this might lure me away from the 750 club....

You've really got that Breva set up nicely, Dean.  I like the looks of the fairing.  Who makes the topbox and the engine guards?  I know you've mentioned this before but what is your setup on the replacement handlebars and how much height and pullback did you gain?  Thanks.

The top box is a 40liter Hepco/Becker and so are the rack and engine guards. Givi A-760 fairing mounted with the stock Guzzi windshield hardware. The rods were cold bent to match up with the holes in the fairing. The handlebar riser is from Mike Bui down in Texas. The bar clamps are Breva Sport ones and the bars are Aprilla Mana.
It wasn't cheap to do this but that's what I wanted.

About the only thing I want add to the Breva now is a crossover to get rid of the heat from the Catalytic Converter. I will also replace the stock seat with a Corbin one to correct the problem of sliding forward onto the tank when rideing.

Well, the PO had the rack welded onto the original rear rack. yes, it is quite large and carry a lot of stuff. I actually removed it because it was not to my liking for how I use the bike. It is for sale, BTW. It would fit a '98 to '01 EV and probably Jackal from those years. Possibly others as well, I don't know.

Its probably too big for a 2007 Nevada, but will keep that in mind should I ever get Cal EV, which could be my next bike whenever that happens--not real soon. Thanks

Great bikes!
I must be so great to share the interest for bikes with your farther.

My Farther is 80 by now, in his youth he rode a 250cc BSA (he can't remember the model). His has always been a mechanical buff, but we never got to ride together. He never got a bike after selling the BSA. My mom kinda killed the interst off on him, and I only started riding again a few years ago.

Enjoy this while you can.
It must be great music, when both engines are stretching out.    ;-T

This is my latest acquisition, it may be in a million bits but it is a 1981 MK2 Le-Mans with the bits and pieces to make it into a MK1 clone. Claimed to have done about 19,000 miles. and unused for the last 20 years. Main journals and big ends are unmarked as are the Nikasil bores. The gearbox also shows no signs of any wear on the dogs or gear teeth. I'm in the process of renewing the seals and gaskets etc, the original timing chain and tensioner have been given the heave-ho to be replaced with new chain and auto tensioner. There's a new clutch and U/J and it's got forks with adjustable damping. It  needs a pair of shocks, rewiring and new tyres.

All in all I should have a nice enough bike by the time I've finished.(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-9678_4B202257.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-9678_4B202257.html)(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-CB46_4B202257.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-CB46_4B202257.html)

Bought in '87, 48,000 miles.  Others have come and gone but this one stays.  Has some of the usual period mods from RaceCo, and aftermarket.

Currently with Bub header/Emgo "Dunstall Decibels"

Light throttle springs
Removed external throttle return springs
Agostini timing gears

Lightened flywheel/ring gear
FAC dampers and Progressive springs (going in now)

SS brake lines, still integrated
100/55 Halogen w/ HL relay

Used to have built in radar detector, no longer, living in VA
Michelin Macadam (much better life and ride than Metzeler ME33/ME99 combo)
Seat by whoever made it.  I found it hanging at Moto America about 20 years ago.  Still nice.
Other doo-dads I've forgotten over the years.

Nice Guzzi I just can't seem to part with.

I have one other Guzzi, a Monza.  It's a basket at the moment just waiting for me to find (make?) time to finish the cosmetic refurb and get it back on the road.  Needs paint and cases blasted.  Simple stuff.

Didn't imagine until about 2001 that i would be a Guzzi man.
First ride was a Centauro in yellow, coooool. Loved the flatish wide bars and the whole "presence" of the 4 valver. The tempter was the 400 km ride on a lemon green V11 Sport - wow what a message that thesse Guzzis have something different.
Then in 2007 with my trips to the local Italian bike shop with my Aprilia I fell for the lines of the Griso. Rode a red 1100 then last year rode a black 8V 1200 - stunning ride. I believed then that a well ridden Griso on a gnarly back country road would not be disgaced in most company.

The bike I bought is a 2006 Griso 1100 (2V/cyl) 30,000km new! Only mod so far by previous owner is the custom reverse cone muffler which has a nice bark with a little back cackle. Will hopefully kit with a small screen or bikini, and when I go on tour, some leather luggage. Any comments on latter would be mucho apprecio!

I feel a little in awe with my stocker late model with so many beautiful examples here from the early seventies on. Hopefully my Griso will age as gracefully as the other Geese on this thread. ;-T

I like both your bikes - but since I have a special love for small blocks, your V65 caught my attention (besides you riding gear  :D ). Never seen one with a Cal. tank before - b'cause that's what it is right? Could you post more  :PICS!: I like to see it with a seat on it.

Cool riding gear  ;D :D ;)

First off that’s my wife on the griso, it was cold that day (at least for her). The tank was off eBay but it's not going to work with the stock seat, I am going to do something custom for that anyway. The side panels also don't fit with this tank so I will make something new. I made the tail light and welded up the holes from the original on the fender. The exhausts are for a Lario mounted with some fabbed brackets. Wheels, frame and most other parts are powder coated 50% gloss black, the rest is a Toyota pearl white. The front turn signals are attached to bar that I machined and polished, the headlight is a brit bike knockoff. The bike had 23,000 well cared for miles on it but had been dropped and the last owner started to take it apart.

This really is a cool V65. FWIW to V7C B/N750 riders here, it has 52hp on the crank - slightly more than the 750cc - although slightly less torque. I'd love to see it as soon as you have the seat and panel issues worked out  ;-T Perhaps one of the two V65C seats and panels may work for you, if you don't customize a solution for it. The V65 is a real cool small block carrying must if not all of the qualities of the 750cc engine  ;-T  The tank seems more and more to me to be a V65C tank. Too small to be a California tank. Tough to see. Did it fit right on? If so it's a V65C tank. Then the V65C panels and seat should snap right on with only minor mods.

I've owned 3 Guzzis in the past 33 years. Bought a T3 in London in 1977 and toured UK & Europe for two years, then shipped the bike tp New York for a 4-month ride in the States, before returning home. Then bought an '83 SP I, which I owned for 19 years & rode msotly round my island home of Tasmania.. Current bike is a Breva 1100. Hoping to get away to " the other island" for a few weeks "soon".(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-12BB_4B7B21E0.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-12BB_4B7B21E0.html)(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-0A9E_4B7B21E0.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-0A9E_4B7B21E0.html)

Hi Brian

Rubbed shoulders with your future king Frederick when he sailed in a world Dragon championship in Tasmania a few years ago. Mary makes headlines in papers & magazines here every week. Would liked to have visited Denmark on my T3, but it was an expensive country to visit back in the 70s when we were travelling on hard-earned English pounds.

There's lots of things I don't like about the new Breva - mainly its lack of handlebar & footpeg adjustment compared to the old bikes, plus it's soft suspension & bad manners at crawl speeds in traffic. But a wonderful engine.

What do you ride now ?

Cheers%3Cdivclass=%22msgbox%22%3ENofilesuploaded!%3C/div%3E%3Cbr%3E%3Cbr%3E

Hi Greg
My preferred ride is my 750 Targa - same mill as the V7C/B750/N750 etc, Just now I'm working on  Lario - could end up as my preferred ride. It has a few noticeable qualities.

I also have a V75C on the drawing board - an old small block C model, but with the 750 mill. That would be for touring.

My monster block dream is a Centauro or a Cal EV or III.

Denmark is an expensive country I agree - a Guzzi here is the basic price * 2.5. Basically you pay for 3 bikes and get one..... :-\  ...all taxes. But then a lot of other stuff is free ;D  Mary seems to enjoy it so far - but why wouldn't she - the royal family are our government authorized jetset - and they are popular at the same time. You can be proud of Mary  :)   She is together with the royal family a highly effective and profitable and noble representative for Denmark. She is in Canada just now with the crown prince for the Olympics. In spite of their privileges, I do not envy them their job - it's basically a 24/7 engagement of their time.

Ciao
Brian

Hey Jamie - Nice bike.  That oil question will open a can of worms........do a search and you can read for weeks.  Is this the same Red and Gray one we have seen listed the past few weeks?  FWIW I use that V-Twin Mobil 1 20w50 in my V11.

Johnr: sorry for delayed response, been off air for a few days.

My island home of Tasmania (26,000 square miles - a bit smaller in size than Ireland) lies off the south east of the Australian mainland. We get a bit pissed off here when our state is omitted from the map of Australia (happens frequently), or when disparaging remarks are made about us being the poor relations of the "mainlanders". So we refer to the great land mass to our north as merely "the other island". Parochial, I know, but without us as an anchor, Australia would have drifted north, and become part of Indonesia !!

I was pulling your leg Greg.
We sometimes refer to (mainland) Australia as the "West Island" of New Zealand.

Of course I know where Tasmania is. It's actually one of the parts Of Oz I would most like to visit. (Sigh... maybe when I get a decent yacht.... like that will ever happen)

My trusty sport..60,000 mi, (a recall for tranny, but it wasn't necessary). Other than that, I've replaced the relays, and a voltage regulator. This bike has seen much of the continental U.S. It has been dead reliable, and opened the door for me to the Guzzi community, (a colorful cast to say the least).

John, I was a bit slow on the up-take. The "East Island" threw me.

I imagine riding in NZ would similar to Tasmania, but perhaps a bit more mountainous, & your back yard is on my long-term agenda. Seems it's quite easy to arrange shipping of bikes these days ( like yachts, it only takes money!). What's the second-hand bike (Guzzi) market like in NZ ? Would that be an option if I toured for a couple of months ?

In Italian the motorcycle is a feminine noun: la moto or la motocicletta, it would probably translate Piccola Nera, or you can refer to her as Nerina.

The Fools on a Hill campout is on Mount Nebo in Yell County.  The area where Mattie Ross was supposed to be from...

While riding home Sunday, I was thinking about the scene where Cogburn ran Little Blackie into the ground riding two-up with Mattie.

I'm almost embarrased to admit what my bike's payload was this past weekend...  220-lbs rider, 140-lbs passenger, plus maybe 100-lbs of gear...

"Piccola Nera" didn't lay down on me, though...   ;-T

My new toy, only 140 km old. Screen from Harper's. I have a topbox I'll fit (hate the look but soooo practical) but will leave pretty much standard. I love the twin disc front brakes, the tubeless rims and the overall quality. A bit too much chrome and a fair bit of that is plastic chrome. Still learning to love the brakes and the gearbox but that will come. My first Guzzi.

Thanks Lannis,

Everyone is different, but I've yet to have any complaints from passengers on the Nero Corsa.  It's all stock, except for the H+B luggage.

The passenger in the pic is 5'-9" and 140-lbs.  She had absolutely no complaints regarding comfort during the weekend ride.  The ride consisted of a 125 mile ride down to the campout.  A 125 mile ride on Saturday.  A 125 mile ride home.  So, just under 400 miles for the weekend.  We stopped about halfway on all three legs, so it's not like we were ironbutting it, or anything...  Just having a nice weekend ride.

Other passengers I've carried have also had no complaints, either.

One thing you'll need to do for sure is source a stiffer rear spring.  

Russell just released a version of thier day-long saddles for sporty bikes, so that's an option.  http://www.day-long.com/new_pages/SportSeats.html

Hi one and all!

Newbie here - actually more of a prodigal son having previously owned a v11 Sport and a v11 Scura.
I've had a few years away on other makes (BMW 1200GS and a couple of R1's) when I saw this and it was lust at first sight - one test ride later and she was mine!

She's just coming up to first service and all I've done is put a Termi can on her (Termignoni - Italian V twin - it's just a must!)

Suspension needs sorting to get rid of the Kangaroo back end and the too light front end - but other than that, this is the best fun I've had on a motorbike!(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-DD81_4BACB01D.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-DD81_4BACB01D.html)(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-9051_4BACB01D.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-9051_4BACB01D.html)

Nice one.  Forget the Sebac dampers and the crossover tube.  The air bladders in the dampers will blow eventually and they're best left with no air anyway.

Do what I did and toss those suckers.  FAC dampers are still available for the LMIV.  I got a pair and a set of Progressive springs from Gordon at MG Cycle just recently.  When I drained the right fork leg it had a lot more oil than the left.... The damper had blown it's seal and leaked it's oil into the fork.  No damping on one side. 

Fwiw, the FAC dampers have a schrader valve on top but don't pressurize.  By design they allow the fork tube to be pressurized so your seals better be good.  I don't add air.

I digress...  Beautiful, original LeMans!   ;-T

Well, here's what's kept me occupied over the last few months. It's a 1981 M2 which I bought as a basket case. It's not 100% complete, it needs a splash of paint here and there and a couple of minor things put right, but it's back on the road now after lying un-used for about 20 years. It's not going to be a MK1 clone, I've already got one of those,I like the look without a fairing so I reckon I'll keep it like this. :PICS!:

To me the Griso is one of the most "Guzzi" bikes - Guzzi has made in many years.
I know from my brother that the 999 is a mean bugger as he rode one a couple of years back.
He's a Kawa rider.

The 999 is well-modified and is a beast!  Oddly enough, it is actually more comfortable than the older 998s or new 1198s.  I've never had an issue with an aching back or cramped wrists.  It doesn't like to go slow, however and is an absolute blast on the track - which I try to do a couple times a year.  

The Griso is comfortable and capable.  It is not a slouch or a "cruiser".  Definitely very sporty - although not quite a sportbike.  Gorgeous to boot!  Can't say I necessarily prefer one over the other as they each have their own unique character and focus.  They're both beautiful machines.  Although the 999 design was a bit polarizing for some, it stands out as a daring design that was one of the winningest race models in Ducati's Superbike line - and it only had a very short model life.  I find its lines beautiful and unique - and pictures don't do them justice - they look even better in person.

Have to agree with you there - went riding with a couple of Ducatti guys yesterday - one on a GT1000 and the other on a 999.

The 999 is well-modified and is a beast!  Oddly enough, it is actually more comfortable than the older 998s or new 1198s.  I've never had an issue with an aching back or cramped wrists.  It doesn't like to go slow, however and is an absolute blast on the track - which I try to do a couple times a year.  

The Griso is comfortable and capable.  It is not a slouch or a "cruiser".  Definitely very sporty - although not quite a sportbike.  Gorgeous to boot!  Can't say I necessarily prefer one over the other as they each have their own unique character and focus.  They're both beautiful machines.  Although the 999 design was a bit polarizing for some, it stands out as a daring design that was one of the winningest race models in Ducati's Superbike line - and it only had a very short model life.  I find its lines beautiful and unique - and pictures don't do them justice - they look even better in person.

Hi MrTricky

How ironic.  I grew up near Brisbane and have ended up in FNQ. 
Love my Spot.   ;-T
Next big ride Sunrise to Sunset,  Kurramine Beach on the Cassowarry Coast to Karumba in the Gulf.

Well, it's a difficult one, I've just got it running again after it being sat in the garage for 14 years. It's my husband's bike but he can't ride anymore but he wanted to go on it again so I had to pass my tests & get the spanners out to make this possible.

It has a two into one exhaust header & a straight through battered old Neto end can, high lift cam, wierd carb setup, etc., as it was raced by the original importer in the 1980s.

Lower frame was powder coated sometime in the early 1990s so is immaculate but black.

Ride wise, it's a handful at low speed in heavy traffic, but once out on the twisty open roads here it feels like it's just taking the best line possible in corners & pulling madly out of them. Sort of fly by thought. Effortless.

Powerwise, I've not opened it up as the roads aren't long enough, but long uphill stretches it just keeps on accelerating very hard until I decide it's way too fast.

Noise wise, well, it sounds simply awesome. Young childen can be seen covering their ears as I pass by.

It's a complete animal, my Italian Stallion.  ;D

You are certainly describing a Lario. Great to have you on board expanding our small Lario "owners club" on the board - AND wellcome on board. We are low on Guzzi Girls too, so you are hitting positive on all the right statistics. I'm in the last phase of rebuilding a Lario. I'm riding the bigger sister of the Lario - the Targa, but she is more sedate than the 8V beast of the 80's

You'll find a lot of great guys on this board, lots of knowledge and a great place to hang out.

Welcome ;-T

Finally got a good picture of the black dog AND figured out how to upload (?) it.  Obviously mine is the 1200Sport and not it's cross-eyed friend.

(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-246B_4C01C8AA.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-246B_4C01C8AA.html)

Pic taken at 2010 Ruptured Budgie Rally (Qld. Guzzi Club) on Biker's Island, Mingoola NSW. Thanks to the unknown photographer.

The dog is now nearly 3 years old (Feb 07 built, bought June 07) and comes up surprisingly well in the pic considering it has now done 56,000kms.  

It's a fairly standard 2V/Cyl apart from Hepco & Becker crash bars and Protaper Pastrana handlebars.  Also got the factory hard bags and luggage rack but no top box.  Another incredibly useful extra is the SW-Motec tank bag.  I got the smallest in the range (Daypack II).  It has power supplied to it and does not touch the tank anywhere but sits on a fuel cap ring attachment and just clicks on and detaches by simply pulling a string so no fueling problems.  I also use an Airhawk cushion which I find very kind to my bony butt.

Now fitted with Spaceclams excellent adjustable footpegs.

I love the thing but sometimes wonder why when it's driving me crazy with electrical gremlins.

No need to apologize for owning a small block. They are part of the Guzzi story as well as the monsters - a big part. They are just under appreciated and under recognized in the community. They are even thought by some to have saved Guzzi during the 70's and 80's.

A Duc is a small block too  ;)

You have a nice edition of the breed.

The old girl and me on the Dragon and the Blue ridge NC
1985 Le mans 1000 I bought 2 years ago, this is what I wanted since I was 16 back in Israel.
Now I am proud American and finally I got what I want...well my wife said OK.
My first Guzzi was 650TT and I owned it for 3 years I loved that bike but Guzzi stop importing to Israel late 80's and I had to go Jap for a while. When I came to the USA late 96 I had a Suzuki for a while and then my Job situation was travel intensive (Marine engineer on Mega-yachts) and finally I bought the old girl and she will stay with me until the end.

Congrats and welcome to the mad house - truly bitten by the "bug" to the level of a lifetime sentence  ;D

I ride the smaller sister of your bike, the Lario. Many mixed emotions about that bike, but to me that's without consequence.
Your bike is a classic. Enjoy every minute you spend with her. She's a beaut, right color and everything.

'74 850T. I've had it since '84 as a daily commuter but blow it out with a fast ride in the Rocky Mountain foothills once in awhile. Have done all maintenance myself. Engine and transmission have never been apart -- they're bulletproof -- but the bike has been down a few times, knocked down in parking lots and in low-speed encounters with oblivious SUV drivers. Fork tubes and triple-tree replaced this past spring along with front brake and a lot of electrical renovation. Will probably keep it forever. Also have a '67 Triumph in boxes, awaiting restoration, and a Yamaha TA-125 I used to race and converted to electric drive two years ago with a 48-v golf cart motor.(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-0566_4C4E5B71.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-0566_4C4E5B71.html)

My 'new' SP III. I love it! I imported it from Netherlands and it was the 3rd I saw when I was
trying to buy it. It seems alot of these are popular to be café'd.
It will be my daily drive but not during the winter months. It is in quite good condition for 37+K.
there are some scratches in the fairings and the panniers are terrible to look at but functional. I
have a new set of fairings and tank I will refurbish and paint a brilliant red colour. Has anyone
done any painting of the original Givi bags? I'd like them in the same colour  8)

Yeah, that was my 1000 S at FBF a couple of years ago.

Sure, we'll have to meet sometime, as Lancaster and Philly aren't a million miles away. I ride out that way fairly often and was just through there a couple of weeks ago on my way back from Mid-Ohio.

30+ years of J bikes (long time Concours owner) and then this Griso popped up on my radar.  Love of my life said "yes, you can buy it".  So now it's in the motorcycle bay in MY garage.
So far I am absolutely loving this bike. 
Everybody at work stands next to it with their jaw on the ground and says "that's what you've been talking (endlessly!) about: it's beautiful".
Hope to ride the wheels off of it and meet some other Goose pilots.

I just checked with the original owner and he said that's the screen that came on the bike when new.  I'm guessing the original got damaged during delivery or set up and changed out by the dealer.  Now I'm just going to have to start looking for an original.  :D

Nice! Where'd the fairing come from?

The fairing's from Sprint Manufacturing in the UK. It was made to fit a 1000S but mounts on the Lemans with not much bother. A bit pricey but very well made and effective.

Miles.

My 'new' SP III. I love it! I imported it from Netherlands and it was the 3rd I saw when I was
trying to buy it. It seems alot of these are popular to be café'd.
It will be my daily drive but not during the winter months. It is in quite good condition for 37+K.
there are some scratches in the fairings and the panniers are terrible to look at but functional. I
have a new set of fairings and tank I will refurbish and paint a brilliant red colour. Has anyone
done any painting of the original Givi bags? I'd like them in the same colour  8)

The led light from the eBay, with integrated flashing. The exhaust own planning, Hungarian hand made product.

And of course you get the question:  Who makes that?

I had that happen at the airport yesterday.  I was visiting a friend's hangar and one of the techs commented "nice bike, who makes it?".  When I replied "Moto Guzzi" he returned "Is it French?"

Last week a guy said to me "Those Irish sure make a cool motorcycle" LOL maybe he was thinking Mot O'Guzzi?  :D

Love the tail light.  How 'bout some info? 

The tail light is just an off the shelf one for a trailer. I wrapped it with sheet metal and riveted it at the bottom. Then I turned a ring out of aluminum and polished it, epoxied it all together and then radius the back on a belt sander. The side covers were made from sheet aluminum and front turn signal piece from bar stock.

Finally got a good picture of the black dog AND figured out how to upload (?) it.  Obviously mine is the 1200Sport and not it's cross-eyed friend.

(http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-246B_4C01C8AA.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-246B_4C01C8AA.html)

Pic taken at 2010 Ruptured Budgie Rally (Qld. Guzzi Club) on Biker's Island, Mingoola NSW. Thanks to the unknown photographer.

The dog is now nearly 3 years old (Feb 07 built, bought June 07) and comes up surprisingly well in the pic considering it has now done 56,000kms.  

It's a fairly standard 2V/Cyl apart from Hepco & Becker crash bars and Protaper Pastrana handlebars.  Also got the factory hard bags and luggage rack but no top box.  Another incredibly useful extra is the SW-Motec tank bag.  I got the smallest in the range (Daypack II).  It has power supplied to it and does not touch the tank anywhere but sits on a fuel cap ring attachment and just clicks on and detaches by simply pulling a string so no fueling problems.  I also use an Airhawk cushion which I find very kind to my bony butt.

Now fitted with Spaceclams excellent adjustable footpegs.

I love the thing but sometimes wonder why when it's driving me crazy with electrical gremlins.


 

Im hoping to move to Australia (possibly NSW) in the coming years, and would like to ship my Guzzi's with me from the UK.  What is the Owners Club setup like over there?  Im looking forward to not worrying about corrosion as much....happy days!

My sympathies. I don't gloat. I have retired very much 'time rich and cash poor' but as long as I have enough money for fuel for the bikes to go out a few times each week I'm happy. Made the decision, won't go back. The world of so called education can get on without me. If in a few years time I need to sell the house I'll do that - not the bikes, you notice! ;D

I take it back, I was sort of just kidding.   I "COULD" retire early, NOW as a matter of fact, but it would throw more of a crimp into my lifestyle at present than I'd be willing to experience.   

Hope I won't regret it, but it's a chance we take ....

Actually I did`t know it could be that good,- its just my bike!!

Just purchased this piece of Italian art yesterday. After talking with the dealer I thought I might be getting something closer to the NTX but  it was just an ABS model (2010). Big tire and plastic sump guard. Still a very nice ride and all the accessories will be shipped to my house separately.
Not really sure yet why I thought I needed another bike but, the Stelvio had been calling my name for some time. Looking forward to many future miles.
The folks at Moto-Nexus are top notch and I would recommend their Sales and Service.

I've owned 3 Guzzis in the past 33 years. Bought a T3 in London in 1977 and toured UK & Europe for two years, then shipped the bike tp New York for a 4-month ride in the States, before returning home. Then bought an '83 SP I, which I owned for 19 years & rode msotly round my island home of Tasmania.. Current bike is a Breva 1100. Hoping to get away to " the other island" for a few weeks "soon". 12BB_4B7B21E0.jpg[/img][/url](http://www.xtupload.com/new/image-0A9E_4B7B21E0.jpg) (http://www.xtupload.com/new/share-0A9E_4B7B21E0.html)
At last, another dirty Guzzi, I was beginning to think mine was the only one, my V11 Sport with MyECU, K&N filters, and as I like em, naked.
These pictures were taken about 1500 km into a wet trip, note the plastic glove covers courtesy of Subway (worked great). The slut loves the rain.

Here's my Breva, looking grubby. I really must get a decent shot of it, clean. Bought a year ago with 10,000 miles on; I've added another eight thousand to that. I've just ordered the Mana handlebar setup and am impatiently waiting for the various bits to arrive. The aerial view was on its maiden voyage from Escondido to Phoenix.

Hope your house survived OK. Not much left of the township from what I can tell. You OK for power/water/sewerage?

Our area has survived both earthquakes pretty well so far; one wee crack in the lounge ceiling and a popped nail.

 At the risk of jinxing the deal, I'm working on picking up a 04 Breva 750, and an 98 Centauro. I have not found a Quota yet that I've  had the hots for. Still looking for her though. ;-T P:) I've even thought about adding a Robin for the grandkids to bang around on in the yard. Hookem early.  Worked for Phillip Morris.  ;) :D

Other new 1998 Centauro. Calabrone



The deal on the B750 fell through over price, so I added Diamonde Nero in to the flock instead of the little Breva.  Now I would like to find a nice Nevada to add to the flock.

If I had a choice, I'd go for the Centauro any day over a B750 - this killer bike is on my short list for the day I add a BB to my flock  ;D   You still have time to add the SB  ;)
Apologies to the SB community, but liking and loving SB's does not make me dislike BB's by any means.

Why should you apologise for liking a beautiful motorcycle?There's no rule that says one can only like a particular Guzzi engine. My preference is for my Norge; but I also liked the 750 Breva that my wife rode.

Since this is the picture thread, I guess I ought to put up a picture of my Norge

(http://s2.postimage.org/xscprr8k/Atlantic_Pacific_Trip_188.jpg) (http://postimage.org/image/xscprr8k/)

It won best in class in the Modern Sport-Touring category at John Day. (it was the only bike entered!)

The Norge is a beautiful bike too and perfect for touring I recon.
I have to admit, that the BB's that really speak to me are the Centauro, Daytona, 8V Griso and Bassa's.

I sourly like the 1000S too.

One of these BB's will likely find its way to my stable once upon a time.

Ciao and a great weekend.

Here are a couple of pictures of my 'new' 750S.  I've added bar end mirrors and some indicators which can actually be seen in daylight and from the side.

I've gradually been increasing the length and duration of my rides as I gain confidence in the bike.  So far it has been impressively reliable and great fun.  On my third ride I managed to attract the attention of the police, getting caught at 112kph in an 80.  Fortunately the nice lady OPP liked the bike and took pity on an old grey haired geezer on an old clunker, and only gave me the minimum fine.

I can hardly believe the difference between the 750S and the Eldorado.  While the Eldo loves to bumble along at about 3000 rpm in top gear, the 750S isn't really happy below 4000, and prefers to be in 4th gear at normal (legal) road speeds - all the while sounding like a WW2 fighter.  Fabulous!

Mine are a little different.  Bags and shield on the Cali.  Eldo/Ambo bare.  V11 Sport bare but you're right. 

Those 3 plus a Quota/Stevio would cover the  spectrum.

My 1988 Cali 3,had it since March this year, previous owner had it 18 years and rode it to Mandello,Spain and most of the rest of Europe. 70,000 miles, still pulls like a train,and when I eventually got the oily crud ,that was keeping it preserved , off,not in bad nick.
  Not my first Guzzi, I had both T3 cali and Sport 1100 a few years back,but strayed to other makes,realised my mistake and returned. Not the best looking Guzzi,but the fairing certainly works.

Post by: Michael H on August 20, 2011, 09:18:31 PM
Ice Blue - would love to do something with them.
They're pretty rough. In the back of a shop that got them from who knows where. Difficult to get a straight answer round these here parts at times. They could have been here since UNTAC in 1993 as the bikes are all painted in military olive drab and the age is about right - mine's a 1992. They've all got the same red plastic front mudguard. All have been fitted with a kickstand as well as centre stand. Paint is original and not a local respray as the original decals are still there. They've come from some military unit but not sure which army as emailled Moto Guzzi to ask if they could help with provenance but no response. Including these 2 and mine there were 2 other functioning bikes. They may have been recently imported in a container from Italy as I got mine elsewhere from a man who has connections with Italy - he imports jewellery (although I suspect not in containers) from there.  The guy with the basket cases is  a little unrealistic about price though - wants  $1000 for the pair. There's no bodywork or wheels. Just frames and engines. Will put some more pics up to give you general idea of how far gone they are. Was thinking of getting them and using best one to make a bobber and having the other as spares.

Michael - They have seen better days - surely - a bit sad they have been left to wither away like this. I think a restore is doable though. 1000$ may seem high, and a negotiation might get them lower, but the guy likely places the value on the engines. 1000$ for two mills would be cheap here if they are in a good condition.

There are occasionally a lot of NTX bits on eBay from Italy. Even though they mostly list it locally, they often don't mind shipping to other parts of the world.

These are rare - since they seem like military bikes. Something you don't see every day.
Have fun trying to get them and doing the project.  ;-T

Hi Guys, I've been away for a while....might have put this up before but I just can't remember! Anyway it's a '78 SP (Spada) which I bought in january 2006.

(http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t6/rathlindri/DSC00115-1.jpg)

Love it to bits, 49,000 miles up (almost), bought showing 32k. Still on points which are a pain to set up but work well when set right, and have straight cut steel timing gears in place of the timing chain. Don't think I'll ever sell it.

Iceblue - got a copy of Guzziology winging its way to me from the states in next few days. Apparently it doesn't cover the NTX as they weren't imported into America. However, the V65 engine will be the same. Once I've got the book it will be a lot easier & more realistic to assess if I can do something with the old bikes. Bit concerned about the drive side and what exactly is left to resurrect. If I can get the price down low enough I'll see if a mate of mine will keep them in his garage as my mrs would have a fit if she thought I'd spent money on a pair of old rustbuckets.

You completely missed my point.

I said

that STICKER painting is the worst job Guzzi has done of any paint work


Taker a look, it's shite, the step down from the sticker to the bodywork is appalling

Even though it's basically the same motor as the Stelvio, it feels so much quicker. It's probably the weight, but last weekend, my wife was riding next to me on the highway and did a roll on up to about 90-95mph, and it pulled away from me like I was dragging something.  ;D

It has such a wonderful linear spread of power and acceleration.

Thanks for the compliments. Cost me a fortune to restore it (although its far from original) and that's counting 2 years on and off build time for free. My main worry was that as I added different parts I hopefully didn't screw up what is a beautiful design (IMHO). All the credit goes to Arturo Magni I'm just looking after it for now.  ;D

Thanks for the compliments. Cost me a fortune to restore it (although its far from original) and that's counting 2 years on and off build time for free. My main worry was that as I added different parts I hopefully didn't screw up what is a beautiful design (IMHO). All the credit goes to Arturo Magni I'm just looking after it for now.  ;D

Muschi

ACF 50 is not cheap compared with say WD 40 or Plusgas. I use it on the the bikes during Winter layup. It does the job for me and it's pretty effective at wicking into hard to get to places.

I'm not saying its the best stuff ever but just I do use it and my experience with it has been positive and I will continue to use it for now

My first Guzzi, a leftover '08 Norge.  Bought it about 18 months ago and it's got a little over 10k on it now.

(http://s7.postimage.org/hump3y7br/Norge1.jpg) (http://postimage.org/image/hump3y7br/)

Then I bought this '99 EV, but only had it a short while.  A buddy's bike got totaled and he liked the blue goose a lot, so I sold it to himl

(http://s13.postimage.org/fn2qtwd3n/V11_EV7.jpg) (http://postimage.org/image/fn2qtwd3n/)

I really liked the way the EV ran and handled, so I've been looking for it's replacement for awhile now.  Just a week ago, I finally got the dealer to agree to my price for this '03 Titanium to replace the EV.

(http://s13.postimage.org/hzaqrhpoz/2003_Guzzi_Titanium8.jpg) (http://postimage.org/image/hzaqrhpoz/)

I've been riding for 51 years.  Wish I'd found Guzzis a lot sooner.  But then again, they've all been fun.

You're right, but the Jackal disc is on the right, Stone is on the left. Not that it matters at all in the grand scheme of things.
That whole bike has had a new paint jobby. Taillight looks different as well.

Hi,

I introduced myself in the introduction thread.
Now it's time for my bike, my Griso 1200 8V.
The Guzzi is from 2009, I bought it August 2010 with 2200 Km on it.
(http://s18.postimage.org/tj1dipij9/image.jpg) (http://postimage.org/image/tj1dipij9/)
This is how I bought my new love.
And as it was with driving my Harley, never a standard bike for my.
I have to build it as my own motorbike, there has to be only one (sort of).
Accessoires:
Little wind screen; Stucchi crash bar; little luggage rack; Carc crash bar; Mistral High Rise Carbon exhaust;
BMC Sport airfilter; adjusted mapping; radial brake and clutch master cylinder; special wheelstriping and some red accents.
I think that's it, at the moment.
Pictures of right and left side(without radial master cylinders).

(http://s10.postimage.org/6feov88zp/image.jpg) (http://postimage.org/image/6feov88zp/)
Now the dip in the original torque curve is nearly gone and Ruud got 112 Hp at the back wheel out of my Griso!!
It's a beast now, but a beast that's very pleasant to drive.
I love my Griso from top till bottom and hope to make many Km/ miles with it.

Aaaahhh, what I want to mention also...
I brought my hero home, during the 90th birthdayparty from Guzzi last September.
I had a very, very nice 2500 km countryroad trip along with friends of Moto Guzziclub Netherlands.
Here is a picture of my hero nearly in front of home,  :bow the Holy Gate in Mandello del Lario...

Hey guys here's my '75 Convert. (http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/af294/nsumax/convert.jpg)
It had about 9,600 miles on it when I got it. The poor thing sat unused for 22 years when I got it six years ago It took a fair bit of work to get the old girl going. All seals and gaskets were replaced and the motor and trans checked out internally. I'm in the final stretch of the second more extensive rebuild because of an altercation with a White Oak tree that fell in my path. Ouch!

The Ferrari club from Denver was having a run.  The photo was taken in Pagosa springs.  They were running bras because they had driven them hundreds of miles up in the mountains.  The meeting was random.  My group of Ducatis and Guzzis pulled into the same gas station in Pagosa at the same time as some of the Ferraris.

That's funny, because I was walking around downtown NYC on Thursday and was thinking about you. All is well...I'm doing fine, but sadly Alicia and I have separated. How are you and your wife? Hopefully still intact!  :)

Had it week now. Lowered the pegs, looking at adding some other bits to it (A770, Stelvio hand guards maybe, large tank bag, maybe C bow if I can figure out what sort of bag goes with that). Taken right after I had ridden her up from Tucson where I bought it.

Hi,

this week I made a few new pictures of my G12.
In my new garden, which is just ready.
That afternoon it was very good, very bright, very sunny weather.
This is the weather my G12 and I (...) really like, but don't get much this spring...

You can see my red details I made on my G12, wheels, callipers, fork, valve covers, Carc.
The red details which makes this my own bike.

A bit in detail for my radial brake and clutch master cylinder setup.

The looks towards the front with my small red fluid reservoirs and the escape route...

I realy love this bike.

Thanks!
Batter(ies) - two 4 cell Ballistics - one b/w frame rails under the tank, other just below starter.
Diode board, regulator, fuse panel, relays, etc under the seat.
Sure is alot of redundant wiring on one of these things. Future project is to cut and splice about 5lbs of wiring out, thats all coiled up under the tank right now.

Hi there, 89MilleGT

No the brakes are not de-linked.

I used brake discs that i allready had, they were for a Le Mans 4 http://www.flickr.com/photos/eendje/7315584860/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/eendje/7315584860/)
A friend made a few adaptor rings http://www.flickr.com/photos/eendje/7315585068/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/eendje/7315585068/) so the discs are in the middle of the calipers.
Last year i changed the calipers them selve, as they were affordable, bought a set of caliper <> fork adapters http://www.flickr.com/photos/eendje/7315583670/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/eendje/7315583670/)

braking is good, but in the future i think i will mount a slightly larger front mastercylinder, to give a little bit more "feel" while braking, at the moment it's more like on/off.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/eendje/7315583670/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/eendje/7315583670/)

edit: calipers are from Stein-Dinse, caliper to fork adapter are from escher, both in Germany.

I'm new here. Love this thread. Here's my little '09 V7 Classic. Perfect for tackling the inner city urban sprawl and traffic snarl-ups. Best part of my day is riding to and from work every day  ;D

Old skool polished rocker covers (IMHO much nicer than stock)
V7 Racer fork gaiters (just because...)
Staintune pipes (sweet sounding, better breathing, grrr)
Tommaselli ace bars + Napolean Baren mirrors (my 'X-wing' setup haha)

Thinking next is a custom job done on the seat, or being real sensible and shelling out for a new leather jacket.

A hearty novocastrian welcome to the forum Paul. Nice bike. If you ever want to ride it north for a coupla hours, you're welcome to visit.
There are at least 6 members on this forum from the Sydney/Newcastle area.

Hehe it took me a minute to click on the novocastrian thing. Newcastle. Sure thing, I head up to Central Coast every other weekend, that's where I've got my Suzuki. Could always flog the wee goose up the road instead   :bike, message me when you fellas next plan to head out.

I bought the 1999EV in 2005, have put about 22,000 miles on it since.  The 1993 Strada came here about a month ago and I have to make an effort to roll the EV out of the garage because the Strada is so challenging to ride.  It teaches something new every time we go out the driveway.  The EV is comfortable and somehow the idea of being "comfortable" makes me shy away!

Very nice set up and nice bike. It is awsome how only few changes can make difference. ;-T
I'm new here. Love this thread. Here's my little '09 V7 Classic. Perfect for tackling the inner city urban sprawl and traffic snarl-ups. Best part of my day is riding to and from work every day  ;D

Old skool polished rocker covers (IMHO much nicer than stock)
V7 Racer fork gaiters (just because...)
Staintune pipes (sweet sounding, better breathing, grrr)
Tommaselli ace bars + Napolean Baren mirrors (my 'X-wing' setup haha)

Thinking next is a custom job done on the seat, or being real sensible and shelling out for a new leather jacket.

Cheers, I reckon too, simple things that respect the bikes already good looks. Okay, it's not as powerful a bike like others I have owned, but who cares its the kind of bike where I find any old excuse just to ride it. MG knocked out a nice little classic, they'd do well to produce a 940cc big block version just to give me an excuse to buy another bike haha.

^ Awesome: Not just a Strada, but a Strada in Iowa!  ;-T I'm also diggin' the champaigne color.


Does anyone know the build number of these bikes, or at least how many were imported to the States in '93?

This machine has gotten around a little.  It was registered in Indiana in 2005 to a fellow named "Culpepper".  I bought it from a fellow in Culpeper, VA, who bought it in New York.  I sent a letter to Indiana to see if that owner had any stories to tell.  It wasn't returned "undeliverable" so I hope to hear from him.

About the color... I have heard "champagne" and "champion gold".  Anyone know which is correct?  The color is much darker in the protected area under the gas filler door.  As it is the machine is pretty close to the same color as our sedan.

Chuck in Indiana said he checked and thinks the number imported may be no more than 37.  So far I have identified five or six machines.  The highest number so far is #33, in Hawaii.  If anyone knows a Strada I'd really like to add it to the list.

There is Strada data and a chat page on Bikez.com which talk about 1994 year model but not '93.  Anyone have an idea why that would be?

First bike in my second, post kid, life was the '02. Added the '81 G5 with considerable help from members of this forum. The '02 is a wonderful bike and I would ride it to New Jersey tomorrow - if riding the coast to Washington state wasn't shorter and prettier. Riding the cafe is what I imagine it would be like to be Angelina Jolie's cleavage - lot's of lookers, a few thumb's up, and some compliments at stop lights. So not me.

from New Hampshire who bought it in (W) Germany. RADGUZZI did some work
on it last year and will be on the road in a week or so.

It seems to be identical to my 1100 Sport in terms of engine and cylce parts.
Is this the naked version ?

Cancel that.
I see now that the gearbox and final drive are completely different.

Paul,  it's the 2nd gen version of your Spot 1000.  This is the naked V11 Sport.  The fairing version is the LeMans.  This one has an exhaust, tune, handlebar conversion & CF nose fairing.  The bags are actually off my EV.  This one had the matching rack.  These also have a 6 speed tranny.

unfortunately, I've never seen a photo that actually captured the color of the bike.  It's almost an iridescent green.  Not washed out or yellow like the photos depict it.

It could just be different computer monitors and their color settings. It could also be that I've seen these greenies in person before so I know exactly how they look in person in the sunlight, but I definitely see the "real" green of the bike in your photos.

CQ,
no mater how I've photographed it, whether point & shoot, DSLR, red to blue white balance, over and under exposed, ISO'd up & down, I've never captured the color.  In fact, I never wanted one of these bikes, until I saw a couple in person at Salida National.  I've been trying to get one ever since.

It's good...plush ride as long as you don't mix in pot holes [plenty of those here].   

Haven't taken the wife for a spin yet, so I lack a pillion perspective [I actually have a more comfortable pillion seat I could mount to the rear rack compared to what's pictured...].

What does the name V7 Stone stand for and how is it different from the V7 Classic other than color?
Title: Re: Show me your Guzzi - Not Safe for Dial Up
Post by: Mike744 on September 09, 2012, 05:44:46 PM
Some of the differences between V7 Stone and V7 Classic are:
•   Reshaped cylinders and heads, with higher compression.  
•   Y shaped intake manifold with a single throttle body. The air filter is under the seat.
•   A sensor in each exhaust to feed information to the self adjusting intake system. No “choke” lever
•   22l steel fuel tank.
•   Cast wheels with tubeless tires.
•   Lighter weight.
•   A few more Hp.

The Classic is history.  New names are Stone, Special and the Racer, of course.  They all share the same specs as noted above, with the exception of the alloy rims on the Stone.  The Stone is the entry level bike.  Stone and Special were used on the California models around 2000 (?).  I don't think anyone ever figured out what stone meant.  Basic?

You asked me what it's like to drive BB1?
 First trip, even if it can be compared to - you have to learn to ride the wild horse  ~;
 First, you have to take the horse and try to ride it in the direction where you are going - there is not what the horse wants to rush!
 A few days after the wild horse of BB1 need to know who is the driver  8)
 It is important to learn how to drive BB1, because there is no electronic assistants  :o

 I've been four times to learn the track riding!
 It is especially fun, because on the one hand demanding that the driver itself is responsible for 100% of the fall or remain upright!

 MPR3soft version of the rear tire would have enabled higher cornering speeds, but I will continue next spring course race exercises  ~;  ~;  ;-T

My V7C caught on the fly, heading in for a Linguini refill at Sodini's in North Beach (Little Italy), San Francisco.  What a handsome chap!  What a lady killer!

You asked me what it's like to drive BB1?
 First trip, even if it can be compared to - you have to learn to ride the wild horse  ~;
 First, you have to take the horse and try to ride it in the direction where you are going - there is not what the horse wants to rush!
 A few days after the wild horse of BB1 need to know who is the driver  8)
 It is important to learn how to drive BB1, because there is no electronic assistants  :o

 I've been four times to learn the track riding!
 It is especially fun, because on the one hand demanding that the driver itself is responsible for 100% of the fall or remain upright!

 MPR3soft version of the rear tire would have enabled higher cornering speeds, but I will continue next spring course race exercises  ~;  ~;  ;-T

1972 Eldorado 1969 Ambo. Both of my bikes run. Sort of. I have to take parts off the Eldo to make the Ambo go however. I bought the Ambassodor at an auction as a roller bobber. It's a '69 police bike but missing lots of stuff.

That's a pretty bike.  I went browsing through the other photos and love the old bikes.  It looks like those were taken at that Steam Rally.  Very cool.  I'd never heard of a Bradbruy.  Interesting bike.  I love those old coffin gas tanks - they looks perfect.

Here is my nearly finished Lario, I got two in the deal (previous owner needed two to make one after the famous Lario head grenade episode). Just painted one set of wheels hammered effect charcoal and now Im missing the red.... will we ever be satisfied?
I was drooling over a v7 Cafe thinking if only the seat was this and the tank was that etc etc (and if only I had the cash) So I started googling and doodling and came up with a plan, it all started with the taillight, all led, I cant stand some of the beautiful swooping tail designs that have a tailight slapped on it like a big festering pimple.
Now I have to find an alloy round headlight fairing to go with the alloy tail, but now that its summer perhaps id better just ride it and enjoy the rumble.

Racer with cast wheels.  I like it!  Did it primarily to be tubeless, but am happy with the look . . .  a little less eye candy-ish, a little more 70's, rough n ready, etc . . .

Ironically, the day after I switched, I got a flat that I couldn't self-repair, it was just a pinhole.

I'll be selling the Racer wheels.  Must be someone out there with a pre-2013 who wants to go lighter.

I had a 1979 Vespa P200.   The only thing I was able to terrify was me .... but maybe that's because I was using a bike on the highway at 70 MPH that had a frame, wheels, and brakes designed for a 90cc engine at a little over walking speed ... !

I recently sold the GMC to a guy in Canada.  The plan was to use the truck to take the a bike or two to local shows as a "team" but never got around to it. It was a nice truck... 34K on the odometer that I was told was original miles and I believe it... absolutely no rattles of any kind. It had a repaint at some point but was otherwise very nice.

Not really.  It was my second time there...1st time on the Guzzi.  Did it 2 years ago on a KLR.  Fuel was not an issue since the NTX made it to the midway stop with no issues what so ever.  The the Damn Dam tour, went out to the bay and drank some beers. Had some of the best ribs I have ever had (and I have had a lot of ribs at some pretty top notch places) in a little place in Radisson.  Almost worth a ride back up.

Did drop it on the side of the road in what I thought was gravel but turned out to be sand...none the less got away with no damage...other than melting my riding pants on the exhaust when it tipped over....better the pants than the leg.

Guzzi performed relatively flawless.  The lack of premium fuel seemed to play a little havoc on my engine temp sensor.  Lit up the service light when it was cold and then went off when hot. Check the codes and pointed to the engine temp sensor.  Not sure what to attribute it to other than the fuel.  Got home and put in a tank of premium and no more light...so be it.

Bill,

Would you mind telling me about the cafe' fairing on your SP?

I've got an '87 SP2. As much as I love the bike, I simply do not care for the stock fairing. Would very much like to go with something similar to yours.

A little help?

Thanks in advance,

Brian

You have some nice touches on your V7! I especially like how you broke up the chrome with the knee pads, and the two up seat just looks more "V7 Sport" than the cafe style seat.

Beautiful pic and bike!

Hi everyone. This has been a long time coming, but here is some before and after shots of my 1994 Strada. I bought it 12 months ago with a view to remove the mega-ugly 90's bodywork and to do a "mild" cafe job on it - keeping it close to a classic 70s/1000S Guzzi look. I have completely stripped the bike down had the frame straightened at the rear sub-frame and repainted. Other than general clean up of a 20 year old bike I have made the following mods. Exhausts are Lafranconi Competizione. Engine is stock mid-valve 1000 with 36mm carbs. Carb jetting and needles have been uprated to account for exhausts and freer breathing air filters. Other mods include Tommaselli twin pull throttle, Lemans flywheel, new headers with Mistral stainless crossover, new coils, Tommaselli clipons, FAC fork dampers, progressive fork springs, Tec Shocks, Lemans 1 tank, Ago seat, T3 rear guard, 1000S grab rails. Whilst I was in there, main seal, all gearbox seals, steering damper, swing arm bearings and steering head bearings were replaced.

It's not quite finished with a front guard, idiot lights and side cover fastening left to go. I hope to have this thing finished in the next week. I am pretty happy with how it's turning out though.

Many beautiful bikes here, but John, that Lemans is painted one of my favorite shades of red... absolutely beautiful.  I plan to paint my boat that color if I can ever get to it.

Got that right! I have Mike Harper to thank for that, it's his creation from 1983, I guess you could say it's "well sorted" ;D Glad you like her fellers, thanks!

I wouldn't do that to another loop, but it'd be fun to make more of a race/cafe style one with a different set of forks. Although, with Jeep bills that may be a few years away.

2011 Black Eagle as of 11/04/13 has 18,300 miles. 

Bought her in May of 2012 but didn't actually start riding her until Sept 2012 I just couldn't wean myself away from the old 850T! 

She still hasn't told me her name yet so I've just been calling her "The Black".  I couldn't stand the big cruiser handle bars & after trying 3 different sets ended up with the DanMoto clip ons.  The Windscreen works excellent.  Other mods are a Power Commander V with Auto Tune, open air box & mufflers. Added a luggage rack also.

Pic of the Helmet is with the Replay Cam.

Beautiful bike Helmut.  Is Erfurt near Ausfahrt? ;D

I can remember when I first got to Germany back in '91 taking a bus from Frankfurt to Fulda.  After 24 hours of airplanes and airports I can remember periodically waking up and seeing exit signs for Ausfhart.  After a couple times I remember thinking to myself "Damn, you can get to Ausfhart from anywhere!"  I must have been pretty tired. ::)

Thanks!

Ausfahrt means in your case EXIT... and this sign isn t really rare in Germany

Ausfahrt also means Taking a ride/ making a trip...
so this last Ausfahrt was indeed near Erfurt. Erfurt is surrounded by a beautiful countryside and has a lot of nice roads to drive on...
and for take a ride in the evening: just perfect

I love those bikes.

Post by: Michael H on December 16, 2013, 06:04:48 AM
Yup it's an NTX 650. Fair few of them knocking around in Europe still where they go for about Euro 2000. There's an outfit in Italy that sells off NTX 750s that are ex Carabinieri/police. I think with low mileage circa 20k km on them when I enquired a couple of years ago.

Here are some more of the NTX in its element:

This one is in the rubber plantations outside Banlung, Rattanakiri Province, Cambodia, two years back.

(http://i1094.photobucket.com/albums/i453/Michael_Hodgson/PChumBen2011096.jpg)

This is the bike at a friend's farm up there in Banlung.

(http://i1094.photobucket.com/albums/i453/Michael_Hodgson/PChumBen2011092.jpg)

One of the neighbours

(http://i1094.photobucket.com/albums/i453/Michael_Hodgson/PChumBen2011093.jpg)

This is how the locals get around on their scooters in really muddy conditions. They deflate the tyres. Wrap a bike chain lengthways around the tyre. Connect the links and inflate the tyre. Home made mud chains. Wish I would have had a pair of them on my bike a day or so later when I dropped it on the way home.

Very nice guzzi Ram!

Thanks Guzzi Ride it is not the cleanest but that is because the bike is my only form of transport.
Suppose mostly due to the internet.

JB,  I am curious as to the make of the bikini fairing on that bike.  Also, did you have to drop the clip-ons to get it to fit?

JB,  I am curious as to the make of the bikini fairing on that bike.  Also, did you have to drop the clip-ons to get it to fit?

The fairing came from Omar's Dirt Track Racing:

http://www.omarsdtr.com/fairnew4.html

I used 54mm "no rise" clip ons from Woodcraft. They are pretty aggressive, I will probably put 1" or 1.5" riser clip ons to get me sitting a tiny bit more upright, as well as taking some weight off the front of the bike.

The stock clip-ons have almost 3" of rise and wouldn't fit.

BTW I also added Woodcraft bar-end weights and filled the bars with lead shot to tame the vibrations.

Also, unfortunately, the original bars are not 7/8", so won't fit any aftermarket clip ons. They are just a tiny bit too small. You could probably shim them but I didn't. It's too bad, as they have big end weights and are solid metal.

Another view:

Thanks Jabberwoky.
Think it's the listed valuations of the restorations puts owners off using them even though all bikes were made to ride.
Although saying that the road salt appetite for alloy sometimes makes me swallow hard.

Lovely
Please post pics after you mount the front fender. I'm thinking of using the same front end on a cx100.
Harry

Hi Harry,
Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. Here's a photo of bike with the guard mounted. I bought it from ROC City for around $140 (I think), it's aluminium and it's mounted via 3 stainless M6 bolts to the alloy fork brace. It is lovely and light and even though it's pretty short, it gives good protection in the wet.
However, I would hesitate recommending using this front end though as I have had major hassles trying to get reasonable performance out of it. I have replaced the springs twice (wirth's - rock hard, Ikon - better), new seals, FAC dampers, new axle and new fork upper tubes (not much left to replace right?). The performance is still barely passable. I would advise that you junk these forks and look for something that actually works. You can see how determined I was to get these forks working, but I wished I had junked them from the start and not invested in them. Even though they are just rideable and spent considerable coin on them, I am still considering getting rid of them. My old bevel SS 30 year old forks (Marzocchi 38mm) are light years better than these. Anyway, the guard looks OK!

This is a very good fun thread.
OK I sold my dear old Cali3 as I was a bit over it's lumbering habits and daggy crazing paintwork, though I could never have managed the sacrilege of sanding off that original patina.
Anyhow I bought a beautiful T3 from a very nice bloke in Seattle who got it as it was I think. It's a special with lots of nice bits and I think it's the most beautiful bike in the universe With 40mm carbs, a 1000cc kit and a B10 cam it goes like a raped ape and the Zochis handle like a wet dream. [In a good way.]

Hi, I am new to this group but not to Moto Guzzi. Back in the late 70s and early 80s I was a mechanic at a Guzzi Dealership in Oklahoma City. I did most of the Guzzi repair work for the shop. I built the cafe racer pictured above when I found a race fairing hanging in that back of Cal's shop. Cal was the long time Guzzi dealer in OKC and the Indian dealer before that. He was a great guy. He passed away and that's how we became the Moto Guzzi dealer. The tail piece is my own design as I was trying to capture the look of a Laverda RGS. I still like it but it seems no one else does. The bike was an 850 T3. It was fun to ride and since I used the stock seat foam it was actually quite comfortable. I was a poor mechanic at the time so I didn't have the resources to do all the mods I wanted to do. It had home made rear-sets, clip on bars and I have always hated the diamond seat upholstery. It was done by a friend and he was so proud of it I didn't have the heart to tell him i just hated the look. The tail had storage. You just pulled the seat pad back and there was room for gloves or other small items in a weather tight compartment. This was the only Guzzi I have actually owned but I rode a 1000 Convert automatic for several months. It was a trade in, full dress and quite a unique experience. I got used to being lazy and not shifting.

  I like it too -  I always wonder why the first thing to go when making a cafe Guzzi is the tank - the stock piece is beautiful and fits perfect with your design.

I bet the sound of that beast was glorious....
Title: Re: Show me your Guzzi - Not Safe for Dial Up
Post by: Big_Jim59 on April 21, 2014, 09:38:46 PM
Yes, the stock Guzzi tank is beautiful. I have a buddy of mine shoot the whole thing in China Red. The finish was very good. The mufflers were something I scrimped on. I wanted some reverse cone Dunstall mufflers but had to settle for the shorty mufflers. I think they were $19 each. I sold it to a guy and I heard later that he stripped a gear in the transmission. I always wondered what happened to it.

This is my first Moto Guzzi but hopefully not my last. 

I've been fascinated with Guzzi's for years and have always wanted one.  The 3 critical factors (availability, $$$, and garage space) aligned and I was able to bring this 2002 V11 LeMans home.  I'm loving the experience!

Gorgeous bike you have there! By the way, if you ever for some crazy, crazy reason feel you no longer want or need the Euro front fairing, headlight, and headlight frame assembly, then please please PLEASE contact me!!! The awful US-Spec square headlight is the only letdown on such an otherwise achingly-beautiful design, and I'm absolutely itching to swap it out for the Euro fairing/headlight should that rare opportunity ever present itself (pretty sure I have better odds at winning the lottery).

Hi Goose. In this case I think I can safely say that yellow IS the fastest colour ! Unfortunately for you, the headlamp and fairing assembly will be staying firmly attached for the foreseeable future. Sorry.

This is my first Moto Guzzi but hopefully not my last. 

I've been fascinated with Guzzi's for years and have always wanted one.  The 3 critical factors (availability, $$$, and garage space) aligned and I was able to bring this 2002 V11 LeMans home.  I'm loving the experience!

I used to have the same bike, color and all, and still think it's one of the prettiest Guzzi's out there.  Enjoy.

Jabberwocky and Lannis - thanks. You're right, I'm not concerned about authenticity; I build my bikes to my own taste. And as handsome as the Tonti-framed bikes can be, I just could not find a way to like the inherent angularity and plain jane graphics of the factory T3 tank. The rounded side panels against black on the tank are my attempt to soften those lines.  I pulled the footboards and lower frame rails from a donor bike, the rocker covers from an earlier project, the Lafranconis came from ebay, etc.

Hi,

me again, I was here 10 pages ago.
between then and now, more happened, I have changed more at my G12.
Last year, I have been  in Mandello again, during a 4000 km local road trip.
A magnificient ride with friends from Moto Guzzi Club Netherlands.
Now a friend made a picture from me and my G12 in front of the Holy Gate.
(http://i1066.photobucket.com/albums/u420/AvdBiggelaar/MGCN%20Moto%20Giro%20Italia%202013/0638_zps42321923.jpg)
Last winter I checked the bearings at the swingarm and the front fork and greased them properly.
(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7319/12630288354_7ffee2a898_z.jpg)
I brought my front and rear suspension to a specialist.
I have also changed my exhaustsystem.
I didn't like the a-symetric header system on my bike, so I bought headers from a Stelvio.
I polished them, made them fit my Griso high rise pipe and moved the oil cooler to the front.
(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7171/13288368533_b107dd9799_z.jpg)
(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3702/13288601624_123959342b_z.jpg)
I like the looks without that oil cooler lump at the right much, much better.
You can see those two uprising tits in the way it's ment to.
Now I want to make the black plastic covers from valve covers, the protectors from the injectors and front fender extender in carbon look.
Also maybe my flyscreen in combination with black paint and a "tri colore" detail.

I love my G12, I tender him like my wife...(in a materialistic way...).
All the love I give, I get back. Every ride.

I really dig the eye-ball blow of red then the balanced sprinkling of "white" metals agains the blackness. Laid down plate, blued headers, gaitors...

My Stelvio just turned 3k today.  Here's Big Whitey wet and wild from a morning commute.  Other pic with topbox on - keep it off unless travelling.  My mods include handguards, Hepco Becker engine guards, Givi top and side racks, and Moto Centric soft bags.

It's about time I put up some photos of my 2 Guzzis.

No1 is a 1976 750S3 which has been much modified. I bought it dismantled in 2006 with the intention of restoring it. It had been off the road for at least 8 years following a wiring fire and during that time the engine had seized. However, I crashed my other bike in 2007 and so it was fitted with an 850T4 engine I already had and pressed into service. It also has V7Sport headlamp and 'bars, modern-ish Guzzi switchgear and a one-off wiring loom to match. Exhausts are T3 with tatty but lovely sounding Busso silencers. This photo was taken shortly after fitting a Cali frame rail and side stand. I had just returned from a run to see if it scraped the deck in corners - it doesn't. Fully loaded, it had rolled off the original sidestand.

(http://racingrhino.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/dscf0371.jpg)

No2 is my 1972 V7Sport. I am very attached to this bike which I bought in 1978. It was originally lime green with a black frame. I rebuilt it in 2002 and painted it all black. This photo was taken at the UK V-Twin rally in 2006 and shows it with the tank from the S3 as the original had started to leak.

(http://racingrhino.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/wde97k-vtwin-06.jpg)

As I said, I crashed this bike fairly heavily in 2007 when I left a mountain road and the bike (and I) sommersaulted down the hill side. This year I have started to rebuild "Rhino" as I call him. I have decide to finish the bike in burgundy with a silver frame. This is a colour scheme never available in the UK but, what the heck, I like it.This is how he is today.

(http://i875.photobucket.com/albums/ab317/v7johnpics/DSCF0522.jpg)

I know I've posted this elsewhere but the tank is back from paint

I can finally add a post to this thread, rather than just looking at the pictures and wishing.

This is my newest addition to the stable, technically it is owned by me, but is about as far as it can be from home (whilst being in the same country - 4500 km)
Can't wait to get it home.

2013 V7special.
Waiting on delivery of Sato rear sets and Mistral shorty canisters to complete the personalization.
I left the mechanical alone and concentrated on ergonomics and suspension. May upgrade the front brake if I feel the need.
For now; it is a nice lightweight touring bike.

Helmut, I'm curious about your rear end setup there. It looks, by your brake pedal, like you must have a drum brake on the rear, but you have a later disk brake final drive. How does that work? I guess you need a disk brake swing arm, but then can you just put on the drum brake wheel and brake? My bike is made up of a mix-up of parts, and I went through some trial and error in the brake-wheel-finaldrive-ujoint area. I'm just curious how you put that all together. Nice looking bike there!

No mine has no Disk, the rear brake is a drum brake and original on a 850T. Mine is a 850T. Frame, Weels and brakes are gen, except the second /double disk on front. as often done in the 70th they are perorated for better peformance when wet.

Sorry no clue for question but i cant imagine any solution without using a brake cylinder

I think you misunderstood my question. I can see that you have a drum brake. I believe your final drive drive/bevel gear is from a later, disk brake model, and not from an 850T. I had thought that you needed a final drive box from a drum brake bike in order to run a drum brake, but apparently I was wrong, unless you did something clever to make it work.

Back in June I posted pics of my 2 Guzzis - An 850 engined S3 and a V7Sport underging a rebuild. Sadly, in September, the S3 was badly damaged in an accident when a car left a lay-by to do a U-turn as I was passing! It ended up like this

Apart from the obvious, the frame and headstock were badly bent. I didn't have any interest in rebuilding it so sold it back to the person I bought it from several years back. He is having the frame straightened and intends to restore it.

In October I bought a 1971 V7 700 which was imported from Italy a year ago. It's a military/police style bike and I'm not sure of its government history - possibly the "Vigili del Fuoco" (fire brigade) who apparently used V7s and Nuovo Falcones as radio bikes.

I sold the 850 engined S3 along with all the 750 engine parts I had from it's original engine. The new owner's intention is to restore it to original. He already has an S3 plus a number of other Guzzis. He has now had the frame straightened, a new steering stem made (the old one was very bent) and had the lower fork yoke straightened as well. It will live again but will take time and money.

I've had to do some minor jobs on the red V7 loop but it's being used. I'll still have to change a few things as my damaged wrist/hand can't cope with some of the controls. Last weekend it was joined by 3 others at the Moto Guzzi Club GB Clocks Forward Rally. It's unusual to get so many together here in the UK.

Love your bike. I was looking at getting a v7 racer, love the bling, but the more I see of the special, the more i like it. What's the deal, you have polished rims, (Like I want) were they originally black, all the specials I've seen in the black and orange have black rims. Did you strip and polish yours?
Next thing to do, strip the paint off the forks and polish them. It will look the business.

(http://thumb.ibb.co/eO09Ok/P1010777.jpg) (http://ibb.co/eO09Ok)

Originally bought to be a donor bike for a cafe racer project, but I fell in love with it the way it was. (underneath the dowdy hepco boxes.) Didn't want to mess with it. Besides, the draconian Singapore laws would probably make any mods illegal. Not worth the risk. I Got rid of the side boxes and passenger seat. (Wife refuses to ride with me,..... wonder why?) Love the fenders, Chromed the front fender, doing the rear one soon. Put 32 inch stainless western bars on and changed the switchgear for aluminium ones from an EV - Vintage. Thinking of chroming them too. Put an extra caliper up front and wave twin blade discs. It stops scary fast now. Best upgrade so far! Put on a main stand off ebay. Chromed the centrestand of course,.... going to chrome everything possible! Chrome grips, headlight and visor, rectangular mirrors off a honda. (Bigger rear view than originals and don't look too shabby either), lucas tail light and relocated signals. Damn if I'm running out of presents to buy for it! Any suggestions guys?

Next step is an anodised red, mirror finish paint job on the tank and side covers,  Bellagio tank badges, Racing stripe, heritage stickers, while I chrome the rear fender and whatever else I can,..... can't wait!

Hoping to satisfy my desire for a cafe racer guzzi with a V7 special, with minor mods. In the meantime, I'll have to do with my customised CB750 nighthawk.

Just joined Wildgoose & want to participate in this thread.  My dad was the original owner.

.....
I rode this bike only once (about 30 years ago) and wasn't comfortable with the right hand shifting in Los Angeles traffic.  It didn't bother my dad at all as he was a demon in the Santa Barbara sweeping canyons!
It has been stored in the garage since 1993.

Nice V7 Sport!   

I just go my first right-shift bike ('68 Ducati Monza).   I acclimated to the right shift much more easily than I thought I would.

You might want to give it a go, esp. if you can get a to a lower-traffic (than LA) area to do it.   Otherwise, it can be converted.     Others here know way more than I do on that topic, but, I think that I could potentially be as simple as getting some parts from later, left shift bike such as a T3.

Love your bike. I was looking at getting a v7 racer, love the bling, but the more I see of the special, the more i like it. What's the deal, you have polished rims, (Like I want) were they originally black, all the specials I've seen in the black and orange have black rims. Did you strip and polish yours?
Next thing to do, strip the paint off the forks and polish them. It will look the business.

Look more closely,specifically at the shape of the jugs and heads.     That is a pre-2013 V7 Classic with the 2TB motor and chromed steel wheels.

IIRC, the owner did it up in 750S livery (which is what the 2014 Special is meant to look like) when he was fixing it up after a crash.

At the 2005 West Virginia National

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3073/2793986883_8b556eff12_b.jpg)

Just after the Wisconsin Rally this year.

It's a 2001 V11 Sport that I bought in 2004.  Stock AFAIK besides the Teckno bags and two bent rims that will be fixed this winter if the money works out.  Used to have heated grips but I replaced them with some softer grips.  (I wear gloves anyway)  Want to do a lot of upgrades in the future (part of why I'm here) including but not limited to pipes, seat, HB bags, and paint and powdercoat work thanks to years of living on gravel roads.  But I have been very satisfied with her stock so far so I'm not in too big of a hurry.  Currently at 30k miles most of them put on by me and looking forward to a lot more.  Planning on the 2010 National if I'm not broke by then.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3131/2795193073_07fd621fd1_b.jpg)

And this is my other Guzzi.  '98 EV wrecked in '03.  Messed me up worse than the bike.  Hopefully both of us will be back to 100% or better some day.  I'm either rebuilding it or pulling the motor and making a cafe project with it as I miss my old 850T.  Of course my limited mechanical knowledge, youth, and profession are holding me back from completing this so far.  I have no pics of my older Guzzi or my Yamaha scanned on the computer yet but stay tuned.

My first Guzzi, only owned it for three weeks but loving it so far. As soon as I got it home I removed the rear number boards, fitted a tail tidy, and a couple of days later the Mistral exhausts

Tell us about that headlight.

Looks like the Harley Daymaker LED lamp, or a good clone.

-17 C today.  Roll on summer.

2003 Titanium with just 3500 miles, I recently bought it.   Why buy a bike like this if your not going to ride it ?

2012 Griso 1200 8V SE in Tenni green. Purchased  a couple weeks ago and finally put some miles on it today. Only 2200 miles, custom exhaust and a Corbin for longer rides.

Congrats, and welcome to the smallblock club.

Tell us about that headlight.
Thanks for the welcome. It was bound to happen. That headlight is the Harley-Davidson Day-maker. It works well. Since it has been with me the bike has only been ridden for a few minutes at night. (I hope your recovery is swift. I've been following your thread about the surgery.)

I actually went to the shop to talk about buying a used Corbin seat for my California EVT to provide a little more leg room. I walked out with this. The flat seat makes it possible to move back and get all the leg room I need.


Nice set up!

Pablo, I'm sorry, but I don't know anything about the windshield yet. I'll try to find out from the original owner and get back to you. It works well. I generally dislike small windshields. I normally rather go without one since most of them simply aim the air stream right at your head. However, this one does a decent job. It causes minor helmet buffeting as the speeds get over 50-60 mph, but is minor enough that I can usually ignore it.

That Trophy is in very nice condition. I have seen it around around town for several years. I can't remember the exact amount, but it is for sale for some ridiculously low amount. The only issue is the D&D mufflers which are too loud for my tastes.

Here are a few shots of my 2016 racer.  So far I've just added Guzzi panniers, the biposto 2-up seat (with passenger pegs and handles) and a surfboard rack.  Next will be a luggage rack, I'm hoping to drop the pipes a bit so I can fit larger panniers on, maybe some hard cases but I have to find the right style.

My first Guzzi, only owned it for three weeks but loving it so far. As soon as I got it home I removed the rear number boards, fitted a tail tidy, and a couple of days later the Mistral exhausts

Then the next weekend after visiting the London motorcycle show, came home with some Oberon bar end mirrors and a Dart flyscreen.

Used to have an 850T now have 04 ev. Both were great. The EV is a lot easier for me to live with but never had a serious issue with the  850T. The 850 was ran smoother but was a rougher ride, brakes not nearly as good, and charging system was weak.
