Perhaps the most amazing thing about the Guzzi V8 is that it went from a blank sheet of paper to a running engine in just five months.

Gary,

Thank you, that is one of the best articles I have read on the Guzzi Eight.  Engineering genius to be sure!

Hey, my little bike from Mandello is going to get fired up, filled up and ridden this coming 3 day weekend.

Veloce!!
