Definately something basic about older Guzzis isn't there!
Once you've owned one, you're hooked.

Saw these two back in '08 @ 'TTT', well set up & would be a good tourer.

With a period correct big tank, it should be a good thing for "retro adventure riding".
I've also got a '78 SP370, just picked up a PE250 from 1980 and will take delivery of a '72 DT2MX shortly as well.
Then there's a couple of 40 year old CT90's kicking about......
Dang Ya know how to make a bloke feel old don't you . Bought one new that year. Was a good little jigger but I missed the other cylinder looking back. Should have bought the new GS 800.

Daughter on her 1984 PW50: bike was originally bought for a kid with brain cancer; she's now in her thirties and happily passed the bike back when our daughter was 4; now she rides a 125, but will keep the PW "forever".

Love to hear a bit more about it - Was it destined for failure from day 1 or did the locals kill it before it even got off the ground Shame Hesketh went west also, as it seemed like a good product (pricey).

The rear suspensiojn on this one seems odd.
