Greetings all, new Convert convert here. I am actually a long time Moto Guzzi owner, rider, wrench (aren't we all...?) and first time Convert owner. This particular old boot, a '76 Moto Guzzi V1000 Convert sat dormant since 1991 indicated by the last registration. Actually seems to have been stored properly as bolting comes apart easily and the engine is not stuck... lol Good start huh...? So '76 V1000 Convert barn find status: Great news, compression checks out well on both cylinders, nice blue spark from the Dyna III, lights work... The compression check was a little weird, the throttle cables are stuck so I could not open the throttles but I think it is a good reading. We can move forward now. Carbs come off and into the ultrasonic tub. Fluid changes, parts order for brake rebuilds, carb kits, hoses and cables going out. Getting excited...!
