these things were wicked fast for their day and the 500 modle would outrun the 750 right off the showroom floor!

Cool2 The last of the Guzzi singles



Soon after I bought this Moto Guzzi Nuovo Falcone, I became a member of the German Falcone Club, which is for Guzzi singles and features many Nuovo Falcones - as they were the last single produced by Guzzi and the strongest ones at that. Everything about the bike is oversized, including the cylinder head and cooling body, which means these blocks keep running forever. Almost every NF owner customizes his bike in some way, so at the three annual rallies, you will hear the same sound on all of them, but they all look slightly different. Here is a nice video of the whole group passing by on a sunny Saturday afternoon, somewhere in Germany:

I thought the red frame white tank was the last Falcone.

The red one is based on army/police version, the white/red verion is the NF civile. I remember the Sahara, which was a army/police version with a "Sahara" paint job, to be the last NF Version.

Is that twin muffler system original equipment?

That's a Don Vesco Rabid Transit fairing. Looks good! Of all the common fairings from the 70s and 80s, those looked the best - and I've even heard they improve gas mileage.
