The bike is a Convert automatic owned by Sue Stacy Hampton, who (I believe) found it on eBay. I have a 10K original 'Vert in pieces and could do something similar. Loving this!




Good info Precis! Thanks-
That system has been hacked about - look how short the upturn is; plus my now extremely fallible memory seems to recall that the outlets were turned upwards AND out from the bike - not just upwards like these.
I wonder if any of the original Stucchi pipes still exist anywhere, or if they're extinct?

Absolutely class shot. The bike looks as if it has a beautiful patina!

It's always hard to say for sure, but I'm reasonably certain that Stucchi's products didn't really catch on here in the USA until the mid-late 90s. I bought a seat for my CX100 that was made by them (in '93) but it wasn't marketed with the name. Just 'dual-seat' for Le Mans 850/850II/CX100...

Later, after the Daytona and 1100 Sport, the Stucchi crossover became popular. I have one on my Sport.

TY for the view of the innards. More please Sir. (Oliver Twist)

The Guzzi singles were the best of the era afaic.
External flywheel for a small stiff crankcase.
No internal chains iirc and a geared driven primary.

It's is noted that the engine runs CCW as viewed from the right side (off side)
and this throws oil up on to the cylinder. Very good for a work horse single.

When you said V my mind shot to the Bicilindrico, they may still have one at Solvang CA.

as long as you don't use the pictures somewhere else on the web I'm cool with that. So enjoy your new desktop background :)

And I'll post more pictures as soon as I find the time to work on the bike...

Dr. John, a dentist, was the first to use double dump in endurance racing.
The Suzuki team wanted to yell cheat but it was not against the rules.
The Guzzi got better mpg than the Suzis too.

Dr. John said the opening in that aluminum plate, to be solid later, was a great place to
warm up a sammitch while out for a ride.

George Kerker(exhaust guy) tried to enter the 1970 Daytona on a loop frame and at the last
minute the AMA put up some wooden V blocks for all bikes to ride between. If the bike touched... no racing for them.
George did not race... TY Motor Co.

Read the Guzzi book, Big Twins.

Thanks for the pictars.
