Just want to say I appreciated reading this thread & what everyone has posted here so far. I just acquired a 1973 Moto Guzzi Eldorado 850 in pretty decent shape. My dad bought it brand new, but it's been sitting in a storage shed for the last few years. I'm really excited about it and it's good to see there's some helpful people here that are passionate about Guzzi's as well! Here's a link to some photos of the bike.
