Beautiful.  They say that 850 square head is the one to have.

Definitely not a SB 850, NO ONE has a comparison between the two. Like bike mags or even internet comparison.

I have one and wouldn't trade it ever. Bought it back from ins co after the wreck. Been 17yrs but I'll ride it again. 50K hard mi on it.
I bought it new in Feb 84 for $4200

I bought a III a few months ago. The only thing I don't like is the wonky handlebar switches.  I'd like to find a stock seat.

I would think that the 1100 Sport heads are the ones to have for performance. (Guzzi shrunk the valves .5mm on the intake and exhaust in comparison to the big valve heads)
