Curvy's Guzzi 850 T-3 refresh

We drug her home Sunday and she went right to the lift.
She needs a little "laying on of the hands".
I will post pix as the strip down progresses.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

Humpf...compared to the shitpile T-3's I drag home she's a thing-o-beauty.


This is one of the prettier ones.

Enjoy, she's a keeper.

Blimey that bike is far too clean! Has it ever actually seen a road? I would be scared to own a bike that clean.

This is how a Guzzi should look, like it is used and loved...

Cool bike. I love the Cali seat and the little eyebrow over the head light!

Surely it can only go down hill from here on in. Seriously, what's wrong with it? What a neat bike.
