    Thanks duckman, that one belongs to me. She is in very nice condition, proggressive front and rear, 530 chain conversion, 4-1 V&H, stage 1 jet kit, paint original, I have had the clutch cover, stator cover, sprocket cover and forks polished. If you look at the frame you can see a sticker of the bike shop it came from in Edmonton in 1980. I'm the second owner.
    Here is my other love...lol

    Great rides either here or on BC Classics. Always good to see them.

    a simple pair of outrigger skis (with casters) and that thing would be incredible.

    It's finally running like a Guzzi should! Still a few more little things to sort out, but I'm very happy with the way it runs. It's pulls like a freight train.

    Extend the sidestand a bit, work on mounting my sidebags again, it's all good stuff from here on out!

    flemsmith- I hear what you're saying, but I can not put a price on the amount of enjoyment & satisfaction my T3s' have brought me.

    They are both magnificent - and priceless. :clap:clap

    Ride them till you drop! Far too many of these beauties get ruined by convertion into faddish cafe's.

    Was given this '79? GS550 by my old man at the beginning of the year, it's been in the family since new. Hasn't run in over a decade, no idea whatsoever as to what's wrong with it.

    I'll get around to fixing it one day, don't have the time, money, skill or patience at the moment. 2-stroke single-cylinder dirtbikes I can do, multi-cylinder 4-stroke roadies are a whole other story :lol3

    so did mine. Until the clutch/gearbox went nuts. I guess one of the bearings got loose (common problem on the old ones). Hope the damage isn't too big. luckily it happened just a mile away from my storage location where she'll stay until I find time to disassemble her (aka until the other Guzzi I'm currently working on is rebuilt).
