    The handlebars are raask Jota. They came on the bike. I almost changed em, but actually like them. eBay uk lists them for 75 pounds new.

    4 times apart?? Wow!

    Did you get that Guzzi from CL in New Hampshire? Looks like there were a lot of good basics there, but man, that thing is ugly! Nice save!

    This had been living in the corner of a garage with a tarp over it. All the other parts were stored separately.
    As purchased:

    [​IMG]

    Turned it into a "roller" to get it the 250 miles home....I couldn't get all the loose pieces into our car.

    [​IMG]

    some of the extra stuff that came with it.

    [​IMG]

    A few days of labor and a lot of cleaning later:

    [​IMG]

    coming back together in my outdoor "garage".

    Back to life after over a dozen years of rest.

    Beautiful job. I love the fact that you have only a small socket set, ratchet and screwdriver around. I'd be knee deep in stuff.
