    Just spent the time reading this entire thread. Very nicely done! Top quality!
    Now, how about spending the time and finishing this masterpiece? You've made me a Guzzi fan.
    Great work!

    Unbelievable! I read the entire thread today. I almost didn't bother when I saw what you were starting with. I was thinking no way that's going to look good. Beautiful craftsmanship.

    Fantastic project. I'd wanted a Guzzi ever since I didn't buy one for my first bike 25 years ago. Ended up with my boxer and that was good fun. We have a joke among our friends "we're so into motorcycles we don't even ride them anymore". When we all met we used to ride 20-30k every year, when we got serious into racing we rode 1/10th that and when that devolved into building the mileage dropped again. Then came kids. I have 6 bikes and not a one is rideable at the moment.

    Look forward to more when you get there. If our house remodel and my garage build gets finished soon I'll start finishing some of these projects. Hell, my KTM has been off the road for three years and that was my daily rider. Well, if we finish the AWD soon I hope to have it back.

    Good luck and subscribed!

    Read the entire thread today. Kind of heartbreaking that Loaded hasn't been able to finish his Guzzi. I understand though, life sometimes gets in the way of projects and his life sounds pretty busy. I am subscribed, and hope that someday he can get back to the project. What he has so far is one of the most beautiful bikes I have seen.

    Namaste'

    If I squint real hard your avatar looks like the bike I drooled over.

    Funny, yeah, that was mine. It was the first ride out of storage. I picked up a Guzzi so I've been lurking here looking for ideas for the Lemon. For sure doing the frame mods.

    Loaded, any chance you'd sell copies of your tranny plates? I don't fancy making then on my manual mill.

    Thought so. Small biking world. I have a KTM 950 and spent plenty of time on your 950 post too.
