Were the mags an option on those bikes?  I'm used to seeing them with the Akront spokes.

Anyone's here?

Very nice bike. It looks like the brake lines were upgraded as well as shocks...seen lots of miles and smiles...surely worth a righteous seat.  It'll be interesting to watch...Thanks for the post

Looks like a nice rider class bike.. not perfect, nor 100% stock...  but tastefull mods. Im wondering what it will go for. Im sure way out of my range!!   Still id love to have it. The 1000S is what turned me on to Guzzi's when I rode one back when they were new

Wrong front fender, anyone bidding should inquire if the seller has that part as it is extremely difficult to find. Same with the original license plate bracket.

Where those wheels really and "upgrade" ? The Wheels on My '87 LeMans weigh a ton. I cant imagine the spoke wheels would weigh more.
I like the seat, and would love to own it, but it's out of my price range.

Nice gleaning.  The bold type is a nice touch.

A buddy of mine sold his within the past year for $14K.  I really like these!

I have a set of those wheels and they do weight quite a bit more than the spoked rims, but they are tubeless.

My guess is $14-16K

So, I traded my Ducati 750 F1S for a black/orange 1000S in the early 90ís. Put a BMW cafe fairing on it and painted / striped to match. Nice bike but a handful to ride with those low clipons. Numb hands. Like so many, just because itís beautiful doesnít mean itís fun to ride for any long distance.

Reasonable low miles, the clocks look original.

Out of my price range I'm afraid.

If this is the bike, I saw it at the NM Rally in Datil in 2013.  It was a stunner...and reportedly SOLD for over $20K!!

IIRC, some of the OEM wire wheels can split in half, down the center Some type of defect, but I cannot remember the specific details.

There were a batch of Akront rims that would split between the spokes, and there was a recall for the 91 models from what I remember.

On my friend's bike, it had the cracked Akront rims, but I want to say it was a '93.  He ended-up substituting them out for wired rims off of an XS650.  No doubt disclosed on his $14K sale.
