Eldorado and the quest to ride a Moto Guzzi for the first time.

(1/121) > >>

Les P:
I have a few projects that have been in limbo for some time (years) now and this is one of them, a pretty much original 1973 Eldorado with around 15000 miles on the clock.
I will add a few pictures as I go, add others of what has been done so far which is a little ironic given I went out this morning to grab a set of swing arm taper roller bearings to replace the installed new ones that rusted (outer races) beyond service from sitting so long....

These were the pictures when it was for sale.

There won't be any vapour blasting, shiny paint jobs or new chrome, what is there will get what it needs to be presentable as far as cosmetics.
The mechanical side is simply, if its worn it gets replaced.

Until a few months ago the frame had been like this for years, it then along with everything else went to a storage locker along with many tubs holding the rest of it.

Wait... how did your Eldo turn into a sunbeam S7?

Les P:

Well, I'm curious to say the least :grin:
