    The bike is fantastic. Your links are superb, nice work with the camera!
    I lived in Summit County for a decade or so and the sights are refreshing to see.

    I used to run up Loveland Pass on my 1970 Lightning as an after dinner treat. Thanks for the memories!:clap

    Get a set of leading legs ( DMC ) and you will not beleive the difference !!!!.It will make it sooooooooooooo much more enjoyable to ride !!!.I did 1,000 miles on my strom without them so I know how hard they are to steer.Now I have done almost 1,000 with them and I will NEVER ride a hack again without a trail reduction of some sort !!!.

    Rear brake seal seems to have died and one of the front shockers has died. Everything else is fine and dandy! Now getting 12-13km/l, 20% better economy, it's easier to ride, quicker and faster! Gotta be happy with that!
    And the independent sidecar brake works fantastic, but I need to be very judicious when there's not much weight in the outfit.

    Yep, it's a Dutch build by Teo Lamers, a very well knows Guzzi specialist.

    Saw it last year at the Italday, very well made :clap

    Page on his website about it ( in Dutch of course ;) ):

    Agree with Outfit, everything about it indicates a Watsonian GP700, unless someone is copying them again.
