    I posted this elsewhere on ADV, but it fits best here.

    and after a winter of fiddling

    It looks a bit better in the pictures than it does in real life. Its a renovation and clean-up, not a restoration, and certainly nothing like MZRIDER Charlie's incredible work.

    So far I have about 150 miles on it. It rides well and the engine is sweet, powerful and as smooth as silk. Not bad for a bike I bought as a parts bike, mainly for the front wheel.

    ADV8,

    You should see the smile on my face. That little comment made me immensely happy. I only hope that the bike lives up to its billing and gives you great pleasure.

    All the best

    That's just lovely...

    Both equipped with Lafranconi Competizione exhaust too. Not easy to find and expen$$ive when you do, but it is the best system for Guzzi street twins.

    Bettered only by the ultra-rare REX exhausts...of which I'm proud to have a set on my Mk1. My wife's Mk1 has to make do with La Franconis.... :lol3

    Who would have thought. My Mille is a lot rarer bike, than a Mk1. I would still have a mk1 or Mk2 in a heart beat.
