Not mine; belongs to a guy in Austin who I picked up a PD from. 70 or 71 Eldorado, as I recall. Just dusty, it should clean up good.

That's beautiful, Scott. Are those mirrors there in case you have a booger haning out?

hehe

actually I'm pretty tall and the mirrors are convex, so they are pretty right on.

they are aftermarket triumph mirrors and actually work pretty good for their size.

I'll slop some snot on them to remember your post by.....

thanks.

Wow, Scott, sexy bike. I love the small things, like the brown grips and the black front rim.

Here's my friends long distance tourer in the winter workshop last week: 2001 Jackal and we just installed a Z750 LTD seat and rear set handlebar clamps to improve the riding position. We had to fabricate brushed aluminium parts between seat and side panels.

Here's a shop manual if'n you don't already have one.

EDIT: If you do your own wrenching there is a must-have (IMO) book called Guzziology, an excellent reference.

Enjoy...post pics!

I am neither a Guzzi rider, nor owner.

But, I think I would feel guilty if I did not share this with you.
