Waylongway - if you decide for some reason to not fix up the guzzi, I'll always be willing to take it off your hands!

I'm sure that Guzzi is in good hands.

Nice looking bike, very bikish and not very luggagish.

My "Twisted-Twin", "poor man's 'Guzzi"--'78 CX500. $500, including a 2-into-1 exhaust and a couple boxes of spares from an '81 GL500 along with the GL's 5K miles motor and wheels (all of which is still taking up space in the garage/attic):

then:



now:



'75 CB360T, <4K original miles. Like the CX, paid $1 per cc--$360; originally bought it to cafe, but the thing was just too complete and in respectable condition, so now it's just an around-town runabout. The "cute" motorcycle, according to The Girl--and the only one she hasn't ever complained about (sh*tty EMGO aftermarket mirrors already replaced with new repro's):



'71 CB750 (project); definitely a (future) cafe build-- gonna get around to it someday:



Got 1 1/2 naked 'Wings--a MOL complete '78 GL1000, and an '81 rolling chassis--on the project-to-do list as well. (not to mention an '85 XL350R).
