Thank you for sharing your photos. It is so nice to see that others on this site still use their old Guzzi as a regular ride.    :bike-037:

Great looking loop, I like how the bags look, and the front end  improvement is primo! Congratulations.
Here are a couple pics of my 73, taken a few days ago, in historic Bisbee Arizona.

Last summer at the KS rally for the first time there were no loops, my T-3 was the oldest bike. Guess they are thinning out more each year.

I read this and I am appreciative of the history that has been accumulated over nearly 50 years of ownership.
I am tempted to compare this with the likes of IT Secís bike which has a monstrous amount of kís, about 2 1/2 times the Ambo.
That does in no way underrate the achievement of the mighty Ambassador, but must crank the focus around a bit in the interests of perspective.
Does 250,000 k in 11 years, measure up to 100,000 k in 50 years ?

A great old battleship, what's it like to ride a loop with brakes?

My 72 is approaching 140,000 miles but had a major refresh.

a loop with brakes is absolutely fantastic!!!!

really really special

this is the slowest guzzi i've ever owned and by far my favourite

highway cruising at just shy of 80mph is possible and far more relaxing knowing that you can scrub off the speed in a hurry


I've owned this bike for 3 years and bought it with around 50,000 on the clock, so it's done half of those miles under modern conditions


hardest part of conversion was attempting to keep the beefy front forks look and keeping the original dash...

Bit of head scratching, bit of cutting, bit of welding, we got there


thanks for all the kind comments
