It probably displays better then it rides.
You can buy a similar 125 down here for under $1000 !!!!!!!
+1! In 1973 I rode one once- it almost killed me.
That and your signature line is what makes it fun. I used to race a 400CR Husqvarna and those danged 400 CZ's and Maico's were the hot competition.
And YES, I almost died. Maybe I did die
I raced a CZ250 in '73 and it was all i could do to hang on to it; then i tried out my buddy's CZ400 and it scared the crap outta me!
I know who races that CZ in the Rocky Mountain Vintage Motocross group. It's a mover!
97 Moto Guzzi 1100i Sport - $7200 (Lafayette)
This is a former bike of mine, I went up to Minnesota a couple years ago to pick it up.
To my eyes, one of the most beautiful bikes ever built, and this is the best of the 3 years we got them in the states (EFI, 17" wheels, etc)
The owner is a Guzzi enthusiast - had that Norton 961 for sale here a while back.
He pm'd me recently giving me first rights of refusal, so I've been waiting for it to show up on craigslist.
1997 Moto Guzzi 1100i Sport with 6775 original miles, unheard of.
Bike is mostly stock form with the exception of a very rare Staintune performance stainless exhaust system.
The sound it makes is amazing, the way a guzzi should sound.
Original exhaust as well as some baffles? are included with the sale.
Bike ODO shows 3975, it was replaced at 2800 miles (have the receipt) because of a garage tip over or something.
Original tank and fairing were replaced at the same time and are included with the sale as well and in usable shape actually.
So are original manuals and paperwork/receipts
This bike is an absolute blast to ride, torque for days and handles the canyons like its on rails.
97 being the 1st year of fuel injection, and 97 being the most desirable and last year of the 3 year run of the 1100 sport.
It has new Bridgestone Battleax tires, recent fluid change and throttle body synch.
$7200 obo for this fine piece of Italian machinery. Cash or Transfer only.
I would SOOOO buy that but my body would not let me ride it. Riding yours for a few miles proved that to me. Guess I will have to stick with the 900SS touring bike.
Oh yes, I agree. I always take it slow and easy on those Ducati 900SS CR's. Especially the 1994 model with a piston kit and some farkles. Always sensible riding ...
"for special people only"
Blake - why did you sell the Guzzi? I really like my '96. I was tempted to call on this, but luckily someone beat me to it.
I'd wanted one for a long time, it was bad timing that I found one when my neck couldn't do the riding position for more than 150-200 miles. I bought it hoping I could cover some ground on it, even though during the test ride in Minnesota my neck said "you sure about this?"
I'm not the type that will hang onto something long if I can't ride it a lot.
They are beautiful. I picked up a black '96 in Atlanta about 15 years ago and rode it back to Jacksonville, roughly 375 miles. My neck was hurting after the first 20 miles but decided I wasn't stopping until the fuel light came on. Had to get on back roads to take my mind off the pain and stopped to recuperate several times, the last one laying on the ground for 30 minutes. I realized the faster it went the more comfortable it was, 115 was just about tolerable. Rural S. Ga. was about the only place you could get away with it though.
Not to high jack this thread......bought a 1998 900 FE in Birmingham, AL and rode it back to the Springs in a day and a half. I’d never hurt so bad from riding a bike......and it was the first time I had even sat on a Duc
I've seen that Guzzi a few times at Boulder motor sports (or an identical one also with staintube pipes) and can confirm, it's jaw-droppingly gorgeous.
Dead right, my experience with vintage dirtbikes has always been disappointing, they are a tool and an old tool usually don't work as well as you want it to (or what you are used too).
Those really wern't that fast. Regarding the CZ in the ad, is it AHRMA legal with that V-Force reed block?
b) ENGINES: Modifications are many, though they must be consistent with the spirit of the period and class. 1) Reed valves may be used only on Sportsman machines.
seemed pretty fast to me when i was a 16 year old kid! if there were faster bikes around in 1973, i never rode one.
Wanna sell that Penton? My last one was a '75 250GS.
