    Come in for a hot landing there fireflyr...? That front four leading shoe grabs, huh...?

    Gorgeous rig. I had a Hack just like and never knew what brand it was and it was with an Eldo. Sold them both. We have a later model V11 Hack.

    Envious of your riding area. Love me some SoCal...

    A friend's '76 850 LeMans. He was a meticulous, fastidious, passionate man regarding his motorcycles and most every aspect of his life.

    This was taken a few years ago when the LeMans was here for me to do the final wiring for him.

    Stunner isn't it...?

    A Tale of Two Guzzis... 1984 Moto Guzzi SPs.

    Several years ago a friend with a nearly identical SP 1000 to mine asked if I would do some upgrades to his. Well yeah. We added an EME charging system, Ed Milich lightened flywheel, properly tuned his big ass carbs, Dyna III ignition, bunch of stuff.

    Steve's was more of a hot rod than mine which was in almost box stock condition although tuned well with the Dyna III and Euro jetting.

    I took the opportunity to shoot the pair while they were together. Mine is the one with the lower fairings...

    Have been out a few times on the Nuovo Falcone with a friend on his R75/5. Both bikes made in 1973. The Beemer is so smooth compared to the Guzzi, with twice the horses, but the NF runs really well, sounds better and has better brakes. Not much traffic on the roads here these days, but I guess that's the same most places. We are still allowed to go out if we avoid crowds. Stay healthy, everyone.

    Was the mask part of your TP heist caper? :D

    I don't think I've seen a combo before of such a spotless engine and ... erm ... metal work not quite ready for the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. :augie

    Seriously, I like venerable vintage machines. :clap

    Yes the MZ neck tube provided the required anonymity....
    Everything was done on the bike apart from the white tinware, this to be done after the bike had proved itself. Now that it has I can’t be arsed stripping it again, well for now anyways...

    One of my customers dropped off his Eldo for service today. He owns a large vegetable farm and the Eldo is ridden everywhere, including out into the fields to check on the crops.

    Back in February, before the SHTF, I got my root beer special running for the first time. Gotta break it down again to deal with leaking seals—which I should have replaced. Oh well, I've got time...

    Fun ride. my first non BMW airhead in a very long time. Sounds heavenly.

    What a looker. Well preserved. That is the very Guzzi livery that caught my attention back in the late 70's... When I saw this thing ride by I stood there like a kid looking at his first naked lady, jaw dropped and drooling.

    I did not join the ranks until 1982, been a problem ever since... :lol3

    Best,

    Did I show you guys this rig...?

    This was just reintroduced to the road after not having been registered since 1991... Recommissioned during a period of refreshing over this past Winter, not a restoration, she is a rider.

    '76 V1000 Convert.

    Cheers,

    Looking at mounting Cravens on the Eldo...I think they'll look great! Lots of head scratching. Anyone done it?

    I remember WAY BACK to the '70's and being smitten with the classic style of Ambo's and Eldo's but my punk-ass friends sneering "Those are OLD MAN bikes!".

    Well, now that I'M one of those old guys I'm glad I've discovered what I should have known then...a proper motorcycle needs a SOUL....:thumb
