Yeah. For high-speedy applications like wheel bearings or in transmissions, I always try to find western Euro bearings, but for steering head and swing-arm pivots, China will do.

That said, I just picked up 4 French-made 6204-2RS SKFs for $8 each for the wheels on the 1000S.

A Little Progress

So we went from this two days ago, kinda like "Final Entropy" (is that like Final Jeopardy ?)


To actually refitting parts to the moto.



Swingarm. Freshened the pins and seals and nuts. Bearing circlip in. Ready for rear drive and stuff.



Forks back on. Steering Head bearings replaced. Front Wheel. Brembo.



Started messing around with the new Spiegler brake lines. They're longer than the original. Dry fit the master cylinder. The Spieglers are fab.

Set the Tank On

This is the "new" tank. The old one had the same set of dimples. I'm quickly resolving the the bike is going to be rebuilt mechanically and the beautification might come along next year....



My local hardware store that's been in business since 1888 has custom handlebar risers for Moto Guzzi's.
4 Nylon washers. The bars no longer bung the tank.

Now the risers will hit the dash...

You certainly reassemble in a completely different order than I do.

Is there a checklist?

Maybe you can fill me in.
That section is missing from the book.
My main concern is to get it back on two wheels.
I'm unable to completely reassemble in the woodshop. Ever build an airplane in your basement?
The temperature broke 50 today. I'll be able to roll it out to the assembly shed.

Looks good. I'm taking the same approach with my 74, just getting it so it runs well and is reliable (things like a new wiring harness) then maybe someday do some paint. My big mistake was not having the frame powered coated or painted. I used this hi tech coating which bubble up when gas from the tickler overflowed on it. Need to fine some choke cables. ( Amals).

I just have to subscribe. I picked up a Stelvio last week and have gotten the Guzzi bug. There is a 72 Eldo for sale here locally for $4900 and I might just have a look at it. I don't want to jump into someone elses thread but as you are now all experts, tell me what I could be in for.

OOPS edited the price. DOH.

At $6K, that thing should purr like a kitty, and look like a fox!
