Bellagio

Quote from: Vanity toadstool

But then there is that [Bellagio] motor! That glorious motor! Without a doubt the very best 2-Valve big block ever built, and they built a lot of good motors.

I agree.

Oh you 'orrible bastard!  I'd love to have a Bellagio (but not enough to go through the pita of importing one).  I even like the original looks:

You know my thoughts on that machine Moz, but if in any doubt I think it's brilliant

Thanks for the education on the Bellagio

Oooooh that's an extremely successful build!
(which reminds me of my roadster  :grin: )

Would have loved to check out Roper's assessment of the motor, not that I doubt it....

He reckons they’re the best big block to leave Mandello.

I have only ever seen one in the metal once (chance meeting with Guzzisti while traveling in Spain- I was way out above Sevilla riding my bicycle ), and tho the styling is not for me, I have never heard an owner speak ill of it, by all accounts a pretty amazing bike and motor.

I agree. Love the chrome tanks. I would like to put one on my Special but $'s prevent that change.

It's a mystery as to why they didn't import that bike to the USA.

 Beautiful! Yeah I don’t get why they didn’t bring them to the States. Good looking roadster with a decent suspension.

Especially as it was so clearly aimed at the "custom cruiser ' market anyway.Maybe too many products in the range if they brought it in or simply expensive to get US homolgation on what they knew would be a one off powerplant ?They stayed in the range for about 10 years if not more so there was a following of sorts for it...I wonder how many were actually made?

231kg wet. I've shaved about 10kg off that with the conversion but it still feels a bit heavy.

Thanks!
I find the Griso heavy, but it’s only 10 - 15 kg heavier than the Bellagio.
Somehow I thought the difference would be larger.
