Someone should be held responsible for this:

I like this classic QUOTE: 

Engine is a runner with some electrical and fuel work, smokes upon start up.

Title is the key word.  Someone will buy this just for the frame and title so they can get that stolen bike in the back of the barn on the road again.  LOL!

eBay put a ban on selling frames with title because of this.

Ben,

What’s the misdemeanor?

Putting 140,000 miles on that brick, or parting it out?

I think the only thing stolen less than Guzzi's are old BMW bricks.

Seller really should have thrown in "Ran when parked". That usually whips the buying public into a frenzy.

 Some of those bricks did smoke on start up if left parked on the side stand for a while. Mine never did, but I have seen some that did. Nothing more expensive than a cheap bike project. Or  boat project, or airplane project......

I missed the 140k.  I withdraw my objection.

This bike would be a good deal to someone who is both mechanically inclined and a brick fanatic.

I know I'd jump on a BSA A65 in the same condition for that price.
