is that the forsale sign taped to the windsheild?
Yes it was taped on.
Man... I wouldn't let that go! It would definitely be worth the cost of having that restored and re-chromed! Expensive? Certainly but where ya gonna find another one of those?
If I wasn't so Airheaded, I'd get me one of those!
I'm very glad there are still $500 guzzi's to be had
Most of the chrome has cleaned up very well, the pipes and mufflers are shot and the tank sides leave alot to be desired. Airheaded? Hell, I had the Ohio Airhead with me, and two boxes of Airmails.
Nice score! Just watched Magnum Force again yesterday and the cop bikes they use appear to be Ambassadors. Until they need to make jumps near the end, then they switch to Triumphs.
BTW, I thought Guzzis were airheads!
There's a near identical one in my neck of the woods... but add a 0 to the price tag.
I very much wish to find a $500 Guzzi one of these days.
Ben wanted the wild Turkey, not the turkey vulture...he thought the wild turkey a noble bird.
Although, if I am ever re-incarnated, a turkey vulture wouldn't be to bad a thing to be....perform a needed function in nature, plenty to eat, nobody hunting you to extinction, no real natural predators to worry about, immune to most diseases, other vultures don't care if your ugly and stink..and best of all, you could fly!
Now, a bottle of Wild Turkey and some awesome Guzzi pics, that will do nicely for the time being....
I have about the only Guzzi in my county. A guy called with a 72 Ambassador that he say's is "bored out". Where can he send the cylinders to get them fitted with pistons? Thanks.....
What became of this?
My friend that came and helped me load it up, had to have it. We cleaned it up, the original paint came out very nice. We removed the fairing, running lights, bumper, and the rack. He painted the bags black also. Basic tune up, and carb clean and it ran. He has since bought a same year Eldo and another early Ambassador. Guess he got Guzzi bit. My wife liked it, but not as much as the T3 I had. So I passed it on to my bud. He's probably put 5,000 miles on it since.
Why do I find some sort of strange, motorcycle related irony in that statement?
I want a Guzzi.
Great! Another Loop frame saved! I just got the gearbox back for my 75 Eldo with a 4 LS front brake. Now I can finish it up though Ihave to get the Cal 2 back together so I can sell it.
Great story, glad some one is enjoying the bike! Just saved another loop frame myself!
Mostly complete but not pretty...can't wait to ride her!
What the hell are you talking about, not pretty? Aside from the obvious tank deficit, that thing looks spotless. That said, I notice my bikes always look notably better it photos than in real life.
Sweet, we need more loop frame Guzzi posts
Since it looks like this here today:
California in the driveway
I'm think of this. My Eldo in its natural environment: (posted before, but I like it!)
So do I, so I might add one too...
If I didn't know you were from Berkshire, I'd swear that was Norfolk. The sky and the ivy covered oaks in the hedgerows look so familiar. Lovely picture.
How big is the license plate. Wow.
