Nah. It's all about not taking yourself too seriously. People will come to their own conclusions. The key, I think, is making a point but not overheating it. Lesson learned.

True and my mistake. As Fred reminded, the big valve Cali too. Should have written "only Le Mans..." but the point is taken.

Someone has something mixed up. Either it's an early loop 750 (to 1973) or it is an 850 twin. The T3 was made until 1979 I believe, but by then Guzzi had uprated the design to 949cc with the...

It's an aftermarket Gammon, a popular upgrade. The later 850s and Le Mans 850II/CX100 used an uprated version of the original that didn't disintegrate. Many owners fit the stock 750S3 1-3/4 seat. MG...
