For its build date, it just ozzes quality. imo

Some guys would use special 3/8" thick valve cover gaskets to gain clearance inorder to line the inside of the cover with 3/8" cork sheet... to quiet the valve gear.

If Guzzi valves are set too tight, the engine will not idle down when hot. I know.

The Tonti framed engines have a 14# flywheel w/o the twin disc Sachs clutch installed. The loop-frame flywheel is 36#. Much heavier than the old VW flywheel.

Super fun ride. N-Joy.

Please feel free to share your wisdom here, anytime!
Thanx!
