Originally I had my eyes on a loop frame as a ‘round town cruiser, local bike-meets and 2-up Sundays along the coast and definitely needed something with a more relaxed riding position. Couldn’t find the loop that I wanted and then started looking for a T3 or a 1000sp. Went and looked at/tried a SP and then the Le Mans on a cold and rainy November night. After that - there was no question I wanted the fast one :-D A few bad pictures from when I picked it up. It has an aftermarket seat, Marzocchi Strada shocks, a fork brace, oil-pan extension, dyna ignition, stainless Mistral system, Gilardoni big bore barrels (949ccm), glorious 40mm Dellortos and allegedly some modifications done to the rockers and crank bearing to improve lubrication. Anybody know what are typical mods to the bottom and rocker end might be? Have been unable to see anything inside, but I have no idea what I’m looking for. It’s got quite a lot of oomph and sounds fantastic overall condition is good considering it’s 38 years old and has a 120000km on the clock. Short term the plan is to get it MOT’ed, I need to do that before the 23rd to keep it registered. The list of issues: Rear brakemaster is phucked Rear light gone Rocker cover leaking oil on the right side Oil light is on until it reaches 2000RPM :-/ Rims need paint, they look like crap Link and bushings for both pedals is worn and has quite a lot of play Center stand is worn so it tilts over too far and the rear wheel touches the ground Quite a lot of brackets and stuff need to be blasted and re painted Went and ordered a nice bunch of parts from HMB guzzi and took the weekend off, ready to get wrenching. Unfortunately the parts didn’t make it (thank you postnord - assclowns). So spend the weekend cleaning stuff.. Borrowed a lathe to freshen up the flanges for the exhaust headers. Before/after pics of headers and rocker covers. Ultra sonic cleaner for the rocker covers (and a stainless protector from HMB) toilet cleaner and a sponge bath for the pipes. Tried to give the fork brace a niced brushed look. Anybody know this type? Mounts with and off set “thingy” on one side. Thought the more square 80s looking Tarozzi were the only game in town for these bikes. Cleaned up the choke lever mount bracket. New links and bush for the gear lever HMB guzzi calibrated oil pressure control valve mounted, the original crude piece on the table next to it. New filter and and cleaned up oilpan Clean oil pan and extender, new oil pressure switch, new horn and cleaned up stator cover So this is where I am now, no engine oil so I don’t know if the oil lamp thing has been cured and found that the thread for one of the right side rocker cover screws was phucked.
