I'll definitely be following your progress. V700s (especially the earliest ones) are something special IMO. What you're starting with is infinitely nicer than mine. I've only ever seen one set of SS1s that didn't leak and actually worked correctly. Mid 30s mpg isn't uncommon with SS1s, with a switch to VHBs bringing that up to ~ 50. Good that you already bought the Gilardonis, V700 sets haven't been available for ~ 10 years.

Beautiful V7 Dave!Are those Dellorto carbs painted from the factory?
Very cool, Dave. If my V700 wasn't so incomplete when I got it, it wouldn't be going down the custom path. There's still some V700 details I would like to know and include/retain, so I'll be watching what you post.Fwiw- my V7 Sport frame is painted argent, as custom mixed by the paint shop to match the paint on a NOS 27mm SS1 I had at the time.
Very interesting!. Now that you say that the shade of silver is very reminiscent of the silver frame V7 Sport owned by a local Guzzi guy. Here is a shot of his bike.I was very impressed with the color combo when I saw his bike in person. When I restored my V7 Sport the frame needed a respray and I was sorely tempted to spray it silver, but in the end I went with the factory color for my bike which was black. Sometimes I wish I had painted it silver. Who would know that it didn't come from the factory that way but me?
My beautiful NOS crank from Harpers. It had been on the shelf for a LONG time.
I also got all the black parts back from the painter today.
What did your painter use for paint? I've been a fan of powdercoating for frame and chassis bits, I know there are some tough paints, too.Larry
