would certainly have been interested in this if I didn't buy my CalVin from that neighborhood this time last year. there is no dealer in Fairbanks...wonder how they are popular there.

 Is there a common mod. done on stelvios? I personally see no difference in styling than other ADV "bug-eye"  types

That would also have the flat tappers, and need to be rollerized.

I do have a better front seat for it if someone here buys it

I think that bike was for sale here last year on FB. Apparently didn't sell then. They're kind of an interesting bike, I looked into them a while back when Moto International had a big sale. Thought I'd drive it up to Fbks. But they are tall and heavy, maybe near 600 lbs with a full tank of gas and as mentioned, the older ones, like this one, need a roller tappet conversion. But it'd be a better bike on your roads that a CalVin! Let me know if you change your mind  and I'll check it out.
There hasn't been a dealer here since the mid 80's when the Competition Shop closed. But there's probably half dozen or more running around town, I have 2 and know of at least 4 others. We keep'em running by guess and by golly. My neighbor used to have a motor repair shop, so he's a real resource when I need advice.

 I see so many posts about FS guzzi, and this is only the second one I seen in AK! (I bought the first last year) always good to know there are others out there! cheers!

surprised myself at how well the CalVin does on dirt. is good to be behind a big window again, ride 2up and have cargo space to go to fish camp. still tinkering on it a bit, will eventually post some pics of them.
