Look what just wandered into my garage. A 1996 Sport 1100.
holy crap that's beautiful
Hey guys, I'm a wishing, hoping, dreaming Guzzista. Having recently sold my wonderful, if boring, FZ1 I'm looking to take my time and find my first guzzi. Budget is 3-4k, so that's fairly limiting. I love the California line, but I'm not particularly wedded to any single model. The only thing available locally happens to be pretty interesting to me, but what do you more experienced folks think?
1993 Guzzi California III $2750
+Paint/Chrome in decent shape with no dents, dings, or major faults
+Owned by Guzzi enthusiast
+Comes with fairing(Is that aftermarket?), hard bags, extra windshield
+Appears to have some sort of oil filter relocation kit (Appears the filter is behind the sump, no? Aren't they inside the sump usually?)
+Comes with spare brake pads
-Tach is reading twice as high as it should (what would cause this? Classic malfuctioning Vague-lia gauge?)
What do you guys think?
Cal III is a good bike.
I see many of them at campouts and rallies, still being ridden daily, though 20-years old.
Very similar to the later Cal 1100/1100i.
There was a Full Fairing variant from the factory. Those are pretty rare.
The oil filter relocation kit is probably from Harper's Moto Guzzi.
Try the Michelin Pilot Activ. It's a great tire.
Glad to hear it. Are carbed guzzis preferred to early fi models, or vice versa? Ive never owned an fi bike, and I know how to work on carbs(but not fuel pump, ecu, or injectors id get with fi) so I think thats a plus, so long as performance isn't vastly different.
Hows the price on that cal iii? Seems like a good deal to me, but there aren't enough for sale to compare prices.
What tires are you running on there James Adams, and please compare with the ones it came with.
If a Stelvio and a Super Duke had a love child.
Pretty darn nice.
Nice pic. I miss riding in Colorado And those TKC80's (?) make the bike look even more badass.
This V11 sport is for sale at Marsh Motorcycle in CT. If I had the money it would be in my Garage.
Griso alert. Tenni for sale in the bikes section of the flea market:
This thread died.
But in the last 3 weeks at home we had beautiful weather in South Alabama I only got to ride my Griso SE twice.
Working on a new house is over-rated.
Rode to work today (no, I don't work at the Keene Cafe ). Rain tomorrow so this looks like the bike goes in the garage for a couple of days. The Wolfman enduro saddle bags off my XR work great on the MG, any advice on tank bags?
Saw a local ad for a late 70's Moto Guzzi Convert, looks great....anybody have experience with one of these?
