Description

A reluctant sale of my long term Moto Guzzi custom restoration project, hich took a few years and some of my life energy.


This bike started as a low mileage 850 LeMans - it was completely disassembled, hen cleaned, econditioned, pgraded, nd perfected in a tasteful stylish V7 Sport look.

Tonti frame was reconfigured to hang the engine from above (with additional hidden reinforcing brackets), limming the bike more is the the 2-into-1 header running the exhaust under the pan.

A single 100mm instrument sits in a bubbly 7” headlight between the rare adjustable swan-neck bars. hubs replaced with drum brakes for a retro look.

Internally, pgraded for higher performance and reliability - Carrillo rods push a balanced crankshaft in 950cc cylinders under NOS(!) LeMans heads with all new bits, pinning a light ergal flywheel. Timing in helical gears, ushing high B10 cams.

Wiring and timing, eat and paint, nd other misc tasks are needed to complete the project.
