Any Georgia Guzzi  guys here?

Someone might ask Guzzi Steve?  :evil: :evil: :evil:

Silver frame black tins.  Nice one.

I can only imagine Steve running down the road on one of his classic Guzzis, blowing cigar smoke running about 80.

I like the non-stock color frame.  Makes that Tonti really pop!

"Brochure horsepower". In reality, maybe 50 rear wheel hp at best.

OK, I just looked at the pictures on Ebay again. Anybody else see the inner cone of the mufflers sticking out past the outer skin? Is it just an illusion because they're clean? Looks weird... :undecided:

They are the repro mufflers of course, but it does look odd.

Here is mine with the repros.

Dave, I have the repops also but I don't clean the inner cones. As you probably know they get covered with soot very quickly even with nearly perfect (not rich) looking spark plugs. Was wondering if the owner took them apart for re chroming because the chrome is less than perfect as delivered :popcorn:

My guess is that it hasn't run much since refurbished.

And bike only has 3 mile on it, runs as it should. Plugs look perfect.

Love the comments. Thanks. As the owner of the V7 Sport on Ebay I thought I would address the muffler comments. They are of course reproductions made by Busso (not me) and purchased from Stein Dinse. This is what was available at the time as replacements for the originals. With that said, at this time there are no other suitable mufflers available for V7 Sports. If someone know/has some I would like to know. Although most likely not originally a silver frame Sport it still sure looks good! I wanted one in this color scheme. I also do have a 73 right side shift Red/Silver frame Sport, which was a original silver frame example. It is near completion and will be for sale soon. It also is just as nice. It has a set of Lafranconi mufflers installed. Sounds great. Anyway, I would like to keep one or both of them but... I kinda want a 750S or S3 but I'll see how things go. Both of these bikes are beautiful examples but V7 Sports are so easy on the eyes. Again, thanks for the comments. Especially the kind ones. This is a great group of Guzzi lovers.

Welcome to the forum & Congratulations on your new V7 Sport.   I painted my frame silver/argent, matched to the paint on an NOS SS1 carb, simply because I like the way it looks.  If I had a spare one and could turn it into 750S or S3, I certainly would be tempted to do so.

Sounds like he’s the SELLER of the eBay Sport.  Surprisingly it didn’t hit reserve.

Sorry for the confusion. I am the owner. It did not sell the first time on Ebay. Timing? Reckon I'll see. Ebay's vehicle listings are a bit slim these days. BAT and all out there. But I really do not know. I suppose I am testing the waters with them. This is such a nice Sport now that it is done I'll be happy keeping it should it not sell. If it does sell I will probably start looking for another to bring back to it's former glory. These are such cool bikes!

If you really want to SELL your V7 Sport...and want TOP DOLLAR for it...better list it on Bat...(just sayin') :wink:
