My 77 LeMans that I got as a crash and burn project. Everything that could burn or melt from the gas cap was. Melted carbs mc it was a big mess, 8 years later a sweet running bike back on the road.

Well here is mine. It is my first restoration project and turned out looking like this more by luck than judgement as I don`t know a spanner from a screwdriver and everything you read about this bike is in Italian. I don`t speak much Italian but I can read a lot more than I did 18 months ago when I started this project.

It is a 1956, Moto Guzzi Cardellino, 65cc. I did no research about this bike and bough it off e bay UK. I had to fly to the UK to collect it as I live in Denmark. I literally dragged it on and off the ferry to Denmark, with help from some of the loaders as it was a heap of scrap.

They made over 100,000 of these bikes or bikes closely related to it but finding parts is very difficult and actually finding bikes is almost impossible. I have just come back from the Moto Guzzi 90th anniversary at Mandello. There were 1000s of Moto Guzzis all over the place and I saw one of these bikes in bits at the back of a garage under a sheet.

Congratulations

Steve you did an wonderful job, to me is an inspiration and with out any doubt also for more fellows around here, I am still debating my self between an airhead or a Le Mans MK1 that the seller decided to put in working order before sale ( I think to get more money out of it) so until he takes a decision I I have time to choose too.

My 73 Eldorado running again after 17 years of sitting collecting dust and surface rust... Stripped it down, lots of the usual repairs needed and parts replaced but running good. Next up, new paint and pinstripes on the tank. Different kind of riding experience from my Katoom.
