Not Italian. But I'll turn it into something nice nonetheless.

The few people who will see it and know it's not Italian won't care... have fun with it!

Thanks guys, I did a bit of reading about the Mototrans Spanish made versions of the Ducati and it seem like they are fairly similar. I'd like to tart this one up, but first I'll get it running as it is and assess the bikes condition more. If it runs well and is solid - then I will invest more time and money into it.
Here is the more sexy Italian version of my bike - I'd be shooting for something like it when I fix the Mototrans up.

I'm pretty sure that's a Mototrans as well. 'Road' nomenctature, chrome steel fork sliders among other things.

Need help to Identify this Guzzi

We bought this Moto Guzzi recently but have difficulty identifying the exact model. Apparently it is a 1949 model.

The tank and frame looks like a Airone, but the rear suspension is different and the oil tank is on top of the fuel tank and not below as on the Airone.

Any help will be appreciated.

Got a bunch of pix from the Guzzi factory from a cupla years ago, when I get home I'll have a look.

Ok, done that. The oil tank on the fuel tank was a fairly common thing around those times. As far as I can tell, looking at my pix, it looks like the road/touring model called the Condor. Could be wrong with that! But that road/touring model spawned the DONDOLINO






And the ALBATROS










Like I say, not too sure. But being a roadraceing type, I tend to gravitate to this type of bike. Bloody gorgeous motorcycles. Usefull and reliable as well. Wish I had one!

The MotoTrans was a better built engine than the Ducati. Ducati went from building a 125 and went up and MotoTrans went from a 750 and went down. Ian Gowanloch compared the conrods for a 250 when I was at his farm. Pretty big difference.

My father and I are redoing a couple harley sprints. The biggest challenge had been finding parts and information. It's been a battle but we are making head way. I have a 1967 250 and my father has a 1966 250. I've collected a pretty good pile of parts if people need stuff let me know. Does anyone have any old tips or tricks for these little bikes

Another thing I could use help on is one of the parts lots I picked up had a 1961 model c 250 harley sprint. I'm trying to figure out what it's worth so I can sell it. There were never many model C's imported to the states and I'm not sure of the demand for parts. The case is stamped with the id indicating it is a C. Thanks for any help.

Lancaster Sprints,
Moto Italia - buy their catalog
Both are very good resources. There are others, but for me, these two have been particularly helpful and knowledgeable.

The Harley Sprint forum http://www.hdsprint.com/ has some resources but is not exactly lively.

Another bike I re-did and...did not like (pain to start with the kick on the left, not enough torque for my taste..).
