Some goodies on this one, whatever it is..

Interesting custom. I'd like the exhaust and dash mount setup from it.. :azn:

Looks like maybe it was a California 3?

Sweet little 850.

Those are Bubs on it, correct?

Based on the years in the museum, I think they are Conti

Side panel says 850-T3. Wasn't that a model from the 1970s?

i really like that if it is all they say, but if the money goes much higher, i would not like it that much.

It's a nice looking, clean, Moto Guzzi...and agree it is probably a 850-T3 California...$4800 is not too painful for this example...but no more than that, (IMHO).

I like this daring QUOTE from the fleaBay description:

This is the one he feels confident to drive around the world without any problems  :rolleyes: :shocked:

But it looks 850T3 but with a V11 engine and forks. Starboard cylinder is REALLY close to the frame.

You could be right...but overall, it's nicely done anyway! :thumb: :boozing: :cool: :smiley: :thumb:

T3 wasn't a criticism. It was a compliment. My T3 is my "all time favorite " machine.

Same seller, same description…

It's a bitsa all right. I don't see much T3. Tastefully done, though..

Was it set up for a rider and 2 passengers? WTF is with the rear sets in addition to the footboards? It's one of a kind... :shocked:

I'm only guessing, but since I prefer a forward lean, I sometimes use the passenger pegs on a "standard" when in the middle of nowhere. Maybe he does the same?

For similar bux there's the great looking 1100 Sport on this list, now!
Like it or not, it's a far better investment.    R3~

When my back hurts, I like to ride my Greenie or my Ducati.   A couple hundred miles and my back feels better.   :thumb:
