    A nice vid, there are some pics of Dakar Guzzis at around the 1:32 mark. This is the Moto Guzzi factory display I presume?

    It is. It's the museum inside the MotoGuzzi factory in Mandello del Lario.
    I've been there 2 years ago, when it was also possible to visit the assembly lines. Cool.

    It's worth calling in to the Boano shop in Caraglio, Italy, if you're ever down there. Mr Boano has a great little museum of (mostly) his own Dakar bikes, and is very happy to show them to you!

    Yes original of course! Didn't you see the photo at the Paris start on the thread you linked above?

    Nella foto che hai linkato si vede la moto così come è stata ritrovata da un signore Belga che poi ha deciso di venderla senza restaurarla, c'era ancora la sabbia africana dappertutto! Però il motore funzionava e così ho deciso di restaurare in pratica solo le carene e il cupolino, tutto i resto è stato smontato e pulito, due o tre ritocchi di vernice sul telaio dove c'erano delle iniziali macchi di ruggine
