yes. the engine was toast. sold it to a guy who had a spare California engine to install in it.


You should really take a look at the California Vintage. They're pretty nice motorcycles. Engine internals from the Breva 1100. Nice luggage. Classic look.

Prices on the Cal Vin from '07 to '10 are surprisingly attractive!

I snapped this pic of a friend today on his 1974 V7 Sport. Route-66, near Depew Oklahoma...




This is me and Redridinhood on my California Bassa, taken on the same stretch of road...

Cover protectors.. And they look pretty good too....



Probably well worth it for the money

I was looking for an oil filter for the guzzi. I saw champion had some oil filters x318 or x329 I was wondering if there
are 3rd party oil filter you can use. I just got one from Harpers for now just wondering about 3rd party.

I found they recommend 10/60 oil for the bike which I don't come across regularly.
I was told that 20/50 will work and it uses two liters.

Just looking for accessories that don't cost an arm and leg here in the states.

Thanks

I don't know about the small blocks, but the big blocks can take the Mobil-1 M1-102 filter. That's what I use.

I also use Mobil-1 oils.

Don't cheap-out on your oil and filters, your bike will thank you later.

Accessories for Moto Guzzis WILL cost an arm and a leg. The low production guarantees it. What are you looking for? Hepco and Becker make racks for thier bags. There are all kinds of universal windshields out there, such as Plexifairing, if you don't like the Guzzi accessory shields.

There are a half dozen good seat builders who could hook you up...

The two Mayer brothers, Rick and Bill.
Day-Long (Russell) Thier new sport seat style could work on the V7.
Ned's
Sargeant's
Rich Maund

Etc, Etc.
