Whats the story on the 1000s if you don't mind? Just curious. Were are you located?
Just in case there is someone out there with a stash of parts, I am looking for a front fender for a 1000S. For some reason Guzzi made a shorter fender for this bike instead of using the same pattern from the previous years.
The PO is an old friend, and he bought this one new in 1993, and put 92,000 miles on it. Then he ordered a pile of goodies from Steine Dinse (Dymags, WP usd forks, WBO alloy tank, 2-into-one exhaust, 42mm flatslides, etc.). He was going to make a hot-rod out of it, but didn't get further than the frame mods.
My plan is to put the 1000S back to stock, and use the hot-rod bits and the Le Mans 1000 motor I have in a spare tonti frame I have laying around. It'll take lots of fabrication to get all the bits to work together.
This was his mock-up.
Are you keeping the fairing? I have a Sprint fairing on my bike. Do you have the tank,etc?
I have all the OEM stuff, tank, seat, fenders, exhaust, instruments, etc. The turn-signal stalks disintegrated into plastic dust while they sat in the barn, but the rest is there.
I'll probably not put that fairing on, but who knows. This one will be a while.
The turn signals are available from Teo Lammers and or go on the Italian ebay and there are numerous suppliers of those turn signals. Good luck. And John Deere green is a good match if you repaint the frame.
They say round fins look better on a Guzzi than the "new" square look, I think the angles give a much more aggressive look to the bike.
