I think Judsons in Clear lake, MN has one or two new ones. He is a one man shop, been in business a long time, trustworthy.
Try 507-726-2222?Are you sure that you want a Guzzi?
I am pretty sure. Why do you ask?
They are renown for having a few "quirks". Dealers can be a bit thin on the ground. They are "different". They are not particularly powerful. They are Italian....., who else would put a break caliper bleeder on the bottom instead of the top. They are not perfect.Having said that, they are addictive. The visceral feel of the motor and the fact that most do not sound like an emasculated sowing machine lets you know that all is well with the world. I would guess that most on this site do their own wrenching, and in general they are pretty good to work on. Once you own one and then "get it" I suspect that most here could not imagine a life without a Guzzi in their life. They are different in the best possible way.Muzz (an addict not even trying to recover)
That said, you'd have better success running down a decent EV or Special Sport, which are essentially the same bike. They'll be a few years older with pricing to match.
The thing that sold me on my 2001 Jackal was the twin tail lights. Silly, I know. The Black Eagle has a similar unique look to be sure.That said, the above link looks wonderful at $3500.00
Isn't that funny. When I bought my Jackal I couldn't get that rear light cluster off of it fast enough! Glad it's working well for you!As for that CL link, that IS a sweet machine at a great price. And it's sold. Just heard from the seller. Apparently slow in taking that add down.
I prefer foot pegs over floor boards and the Eagle handlebars, low and wide, hit my knees at full lock (I�m 6�2�)
Abloom, still in the market for a Black Eagle? I was at Judson Cycle yesterday and he dose in fact have 2 (two) sitting on the floor. One has 3 miles and the other 28 miles. These are new bikes that have never been sold.Contact Ron at Judson Cycle, Lake Crystal, Minnesota.507-726-2222As has been mentioned he is a long time dealer and a trustworthy guy.Good luck on your quest.Ride safe.Earl
As you're discovering, those Black Eagles are rare birds (pun intended). At the time, they would have been battling for floor space with leftover CalVins, not to mention all of the other California variants floating around then as now. Plus, rumors of the new Cali were beginning to surface. While good-looking bikes and arguably the pinnacle of non-touring Cali 1100 development, they offered nothing substantially new beyond a paint job, and I think many viewed them as placeholders until the 1400s started rolling out.In all of my casual keyboard shopping, I can only recall seeing a couple for sale.That said, you'd have better success running down a decent EV or Special Sport, which are essentially the same bike. They'll be a few years older with pricing to match. Here's a well farkled Special in Indy (no relation to seller)https://indianapolis.craigslist.org/mcy/d/2002-moto-guzzi-california/6565738866.html
Hey, thanks so much for this, and thanks to everyone who posted. I have test driven a couple California's at this point, and I am only getting more excited about them.
I'd like to request a moment of silence as one more perfectly sane individual does the unspeakable and buys a Guzzi.These machines are pretty straightforward - you should have no real issues with the engine. It shifts like a box of rocks if you don't match speeds- an acquired skill. Depending upon your inseam length, the seat may be a bit low for you (I'm 6'0" & 32" and my knees were too high for comfort.) However, there are options in that you can order a custom saddle that is higher than stock.This forum offers all the technical support you will ever need to keep the bike running fine. All kidding aside, a truly wonderful group of professionals and enthusiasts.One last warning: there's a saying on the forum that "it doesn't exist if there are no pix"- so we want to see the machine when you get it!Jonathan
