The gauges fit in the stock Norton cups. The gauges themselves are only about an inch deep so would be easy to mount in some kind of panel or plate. The back of the gauges isn't meant to show really, is just black plastic with a threaded ring.

Looking for a set (120 mph speedo, tach) of Smiths gray-faced gauges for my Triumph Trophy project. Don't need to be perfect, but working, or at least servicable.
Thanks

If you spent as much time riding as you do babbling about hurtless "key wording" I would probably respect everything you have to say, but since you have nothing else to do but be butthurt about someone just selling an item on Craigslist I really could care less, man. It's a vintage dirt bike so I put other vintage dirt bike suffixes and brands in, boohoo.

Dude, I don't mean to tell you what to do. Franky, I could care less. I see an ad like that and I don't even bother calling even if it's just what I'm looking for and the price is right. The seller looks like an inconsiderate asshat at worst and a thoughtless and immature kid at best. When I'm shopping (and I am) I judge the seller as much as the machine. I want someone I can have some confidence in, someone I figure is telling me the strait story about the item. A bunch of keywording bullshit says the seller will try to abuse me as much as she/he is abusing everyone searching for every one of those things he isn't selling. It also says the seller ain't too bright. You really think somebody is going to want what you got when they are looking for something else and you show up as yet another pimple in their search results? Nope.

I hope you make the sale, get your price and get a decent buyer to deal with. They can be real bullshitters and problems too. But a clean ad that has all the right details about the machine (shows you know your bikes and what a buyer needs to know). Has no garbage (lame backstory---ANY backstory, keyword garbage, hype, etc.)...this reels in what you want---somebody looking for exactly what you got, has a pocket full of cash and is motivated to buy.


Good luck.

Feel free to contact me off list if you want some editing help. I may or may not be able to make the ad stronger---beyond the most obvious.

FS - SE Michigan - '70 Moto Guzzi Eldorado 850 basket base

Gents,

This bike was manufactured in Nov. '69 as a 750 Ambassador. It was not sold until '70 and is titled that way. Sometime early in life the original motor crapped out. A new 850 engine with numbers matching the frame was shipped from Italy. A 5-speed trans and the lower ratio final drive from the 850 were also added at that time, bringing the bike to full 850 Eldorado specification with matching numbers.

The bike was ridden for about 10-15 years, then disassembled about 20 years ago and stored in a dry garage. The previous owner began restoring some of the bright work by having it stripped and rechromed. The fender trim bars, side panels, crash bars (front and rear), handlebar and some other parts are wrapped in packing paper, awaiting their return to service.

The project is complete, but completely disassembled. The fenders and tank (6-gallon) are in great shape. The frame, forks and wheels are straight. Everything is serviceable, the heads were even rebuilt before being stored. Cylinder bores look good (no flaking, they're cast iron). There are saddle bags and a fairing that go with it.

Excellent candidate for a restoration, and just the right combination of parts (850/5-speed/low-ratio rear/big tank) to be a very usable classic ride.

The whole package is priced at $1,700. I may take some trades. I'm looking for a set of BMW spoke wheels from a monoshock GS or ST (front hub drilled for dual disks, either 19 or 21" considered, rear drum brake with 4-lugs), a R80GSPD tank (the big 8.7/9.0 gallon model, small dents ok), an Acerbis 11-gallon tank (preferably paintable, either considered), a Denfeld 3/4-length police seat ... you get the theme, what do you have for my '85 BMW R80?

Pics are available, but really - it's a basket, what do you want to see? I'm located in West Bloomfield, Mich., about 25-miles NW of Detroit. My cell number is (248) 703-0662. Call, text or PM for more info. I can crate and ship anywhere in the continental US or to Canada at the buyer's cost. Pickup is also available. I take PayPay, cash, or certified funds.

Thanks,

Bob

In need of rear wheel. Ideal candidate will include axle and spacers. I don't need the backing plate.

I'm in BC Canada if that is a factor for you.

Cheers
