I saw one of Jim's "1400 conversions" at the Kentucky rally.   
How cool is THAT ?

Oh yea.  I was at his shop when he was building the first one.
If you want to check it out gotta go to the shop or a rally.  When he takes off you'll never pace him unless he wants you to.

If you were scared off by dire weather predictions, you sure missed out on a good time...

The spread of food was extensive, and Jim's 8-Valve Breva 1100 conversion (now sporting early, Gray bodywork combined with blacked out trim) and the 1400cc California-derived 1200 Sport were both to die for!

Happy Holidays,

I made the trek there, but at 7:15 nobody home! Where was it? Or did everyone go home by then? Lights on in front but nobody

Thatís funny I walked all around the front, pressing my nose against the glass while ogling the Guzzi herd in the showroom ( man that blue/silver 850 looks great)Ö. But never tried the front door! Iím such an idiot

T'waz big fun all around!

That Breva is beautiful and way outside my safe zone. But!! Lovely in every way. I'll enjoy hearing that monster at full Gallup. Plus, it looks "Factory". Like Bobby Darrin said; 'It's the weight babe'.

Hell of a side car rig?   R3~
