1975 Convert
« on: January 15, 2019, 06:06:02 PM »
Hi,

I was lucky enough to pick up this 1975 Convert. It was only 40 minutes away. Seller was the second owner and bought it back in 1980. It only has less than 17000 miles on it! The seller only added about 5000 miles since owning it.

I am liking the automatic. Only had a brief ride due to the winter rains here in California. I have gone from having zero bikes to having 2 Guzzi's in less than 2 weeks! Both with-in 30 miles of my home. The other is an 81 Monza .

Very nice! Turn key bikes like that are very rare in my neck of the woods and always out of my price range. The vintage bikes that I can get at require some parts and a lot of my time, which I donít mind spending. Good job on the purchase. Hope you enjoy it.

I've had 3 Converts. They are the most fun boring bike you'll ever ride.

Agreed! I have had a few bikes in my life. The Guzziís have really struck a cord with me.

On the Monterey Peninsula. Still canít believe that these bikes became available within weeks of each other. Even more amazing is that my wife is jazzed about them too! But, doesnít want to ride either of them.
