    There are a half dozen good seat builders who could hook you up...

    The two Mayer brothers, Rick and Bill.
    Day-Long (Russell) Thier new sport seat style could work on the V7.
    Ned's
    Sargeant's
    Rich Maund

    Etc, Etc.

    added a power adapter to my bike. When you get these stripped down bikes their isn't
    a lot of places to mount it. I needed it close to the handlebars so I can hooked my phone/gps up to it.

    Found me some saddlebags and a windshield. I guess that's it for a while.

    Here is my old 1000s

    The man in the picture is the proprietor of the Mountaineer Inn in Asheville North Carolina. He had a heavy Greek accent and always called me "Doctor" for some reason. Cool dude!

    Sold it so I could buy this, which is another story...

    I bought a 2001 Jackal last month. Got a good deal, what with the hard bags, windshield and Outsider oil filter relocate kit. This is my first cruiser and first non Japanese bike. Tires were worn though, so I took a trip to Dahlonegah to get e new set mounted up.

    Banzai, if you are looking for a dealer for tires that knows Guzzi, I recommend http://ridershill.com/ in Dahlonegah. It is 3 hours, or 150 miles from me, and looks to be about the same distance from you, though your ride there would be a lot more scenic than mine.
    I buy the majority of my tires for my bikes there, and as they are a Guzzi dealer I figured they would be the best place to go for the Jackal. I got a set of ContiGo tires, mounted, balanced with new tubes for just over $300 ride in.

    It's a 1991 LM-V.

    One of 17 imported to the USA that year.

    Last year for the Tonti LeMans in the USA.
