    Well - if you live on a small island with more marinas than malls, it's perfectly normal :D

    And a big thank you to all of you for your comments & feedback!
    This is a project still very much in evolution, and I very much value your feedback.

    I will for sure keep you posted as this projects goes along, and once again - thanks for the valuable feedback!

    Nice looking bike!

    What did you/previous owner do to the rear end... I assume the rim is a suzuki item, but what about the tire size / swingarm modification needed to fit it?

    Mate I haven't read this thread yet - just found it via a link on bikeexif. Based on the pics there you have done a WONDERFUL job with this Guzzi. It's a thing of beauty ! Imagine if you could buy bikes like this new !
