Guzzi Goodness

This is a better view of the LeMans I posted in #180. I did my first official IronButt ride on this out to the MGNOC National in Elkada Wisconsin sometime in the 90's. I kept it pretty much stock other than the aftermarket fork setup (big improvement), brace, clip-ons, shocks, CDI, seat, and powdercoated wheels. Sold this to a friend also- it now calls Pennsylvnia home.

My Italian ladies. In red of course!
Been drooling for Laverdas since I first started riding in 1975 and now I finally got my first Italian bikes last year.

New Exhaust

Took off the "Cans" and went with something a little more classic.

The Rotax powered Apes are pretty dead on reliable.

I really like the looks of those pipes.
I've got Staintunes on mine. These old boat anchor engines sure sound good don't they!! Much like an old English twin, that perfect combination of exhaust note and mechanical din.

Hi Steve - I was always thinking Staintunes. I like the stainless look especially on my slower, sliver Guzzi (Green ones are the fastest ). The only thing I didn't love was the "can" look of the staintunes (and most of the after market exhaust) and when I found these, I thought they were a perfect combo!

Other angle.
