Suweeet.... I've had my eye on a Guzzi Stone for a while now, thinking about an around town hack...
Can you post a few pics of your Leading links please . . . .
I was thinking that myself Pezz, they look very interesting.
Sure, what in particular do you need to see...? I'll go out a shoot a couple, the fitting in the trees and the brake mounts. It really is a great piece of work.
No -you shouldn't be riding a Ural...
Here is mine. Urals are great! Kinda like a KLR Truck! :)
Hey Pezz and Dave,
Unit LL Fork photos...
I have the fairing off while I am adjusting the mounting points to the frame. The last time I was out on it I got caught in the rain... No points deducted for being grungy...
The leading Link is made buy Unit in the UK, this one had been on an '04 Guzzi for a short time and the fellow decided to put the m/c back into a solo gig. I bought it for about half of new, they slide right into teh stock trees but I also had to swap calipers as the stock '99 EV units were smaller and the bolt pattern was different. Not a big ta-do, I found two newer Brembos from an '02 LeMans and they bolt right up.
I now have a complete fork assembly (less the trees) with the stock fender, calipers and brake lines for another project.
You can pick up bargains like that. I picked up a nice sidecar without bike for $800. New price $7000. Just trying to snag a set of Leading links but will more than likely just build my own. Hence why I like to see pictures of whats around.
Im putting the sidecar on a R90/6.

Here is a shot taken about 10 years ago on the original bike.
It was on a Bonneville 650. I reckon I will repaint.

Sweet deal Pezz...
I like the design of that car.. I use a Velorex 565.
The paint on that and the Triumph that it was attched to was called Jacaranda Purple, it was stock on the '70 Triumph Daytona... I had one.
From the Barber Vintage Festival last month . . .
for the pics of those leading links radguzzi. Definitely helpful information.
I ride a leaner (Flex-it) so I dont really count as a "Hack" rider, but its really nice to be able to take the whole family along on rides. My little girl is 8. We've got her hooked up with a fan and video games so she doesn't get too bored sitting in the chair. I'll post a pic here in a bit.
Those are some seriously nice photos Mushman!!! I have some pix from my visit to a vintage sidecar race in NZ, but they pale in comparison to those!
Here is a pic of my "new" hack. Just hooked up a 91 K100RS to my Flex-it.
It runs much better than it did with the old 85 model.
Kind of a cross between Mystery Science Theater and the Knight Industries Two Thousand
Rob, I think I've seen that white racer before ...Barbers in October.
My friend's "Nuclear Banana", a late 80's Virago hooked up to an Equilean of unknown vintage...
That is hysterical! and I thought mine was funny looking!
Some guys having fun on Urals I believe.

That is one bitchin' video! Those cats over in Russia know how to have some fun....outlaw tracks, NO F'ng lawsuits.....just run hard, have fun, and the spectators take care of themselves....no whiners allowed.
Man, reminds me of the good ole days, before you could get sued for blowing your nose in public...:huh
Polish guys really know how to party on old Ruskie iron, too...
