Wanna sell that fairing?

http://wildguzzi.com/forum/index.php?topic=21276.0

Interesting shipping problem, getting a large fairing from England to Michigan.  If it could be done for much less than $1K, I'd be interested to know more about that.

Nice looking LM! :) :) 8) 8)  Are those BUB pipes?  I'll bet that wakes up the neighbors running by at 5K!! :) :) :)

Also like those European-style turn signals on the handlebars (like the old BMW's, yes?) 8) 8)

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.

Nothing fancy, Termignoni exhaust, CRG bar end mirrors, Fender eliminator from Steel horse classics.
I also corrected the grammar on the Maine License plate but it doesn't show in the picture.

Really NICE looking Griso! :) :) 8) 8)  Thank God for aftermarket pipes!  That Termignoni looks nice! A friend in the city has a red '07 with the chrome Staintune.  That works also. 

The stock pipe looks like some sort of weapon ("Howitzer") or something! :P ::) ??? :o

I sat on a new 8V "white" Griso at the local dealer today.  Demo unit coming in next week.  I am going down there to try it out! :)

Started out as a Cal3 FF



 

Wanna sell that fairing?

http://wildguzzi.com/forum/index.php?topic=21276.0

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.

Thanks for the compliment.

 I painted the stock exhaust pipe orange and I use it as a traffic cone.

I think Galen's sheepskin is the most epic sheepskin of all time.  Looks like he ran over a goat ;)

Sure are lots of great bikes here. I really like the looks of those Quotas, maybe I need to get me one of those.

3000 miles on mine, only because Tampa FL doesn't seem to have any good biking roads.

     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
