    ^^^^ Me being the IT halfwit that I am, can someone explain why pics get bumped off, as in the post above ?
    Google answers most of my dopy questions, but not this one...

    Well, I am more of an IT quarter- than half-wit. :fpalm

    I see that same thing happening now and then and wonder, too.

    What I find puzzling is that some inmates have "liked" posts that, for me, only display a miniature blue square with ? mark, which makes me wonder if it's a browser or operating system issue. :hmmmmm

    Are you using the ADV pic-posting system ...

    ... or, as I sometimes do with multiple pix, the url within the "image code" directly?

    I will be curious to see how the nerds … erm … I mean smart folks respond. :D

    The "recognized and established value" that would make it a classic ? Time will tell... :-)

    1994 is classic, right?

    I "saved" this from a local junkyard this weekend. It's a 94 Cali 1100, carb model. Has a 10k miles and a title and I think I already have an ignition switch and a gas cap it needs. Front seat is in the cab and in decent shape. Tank is perfect. Anyone dropped this motor/trans in an older Tonti frame?

    Some fool made real slash-cuts out of the stock mufflers :fpalm.

    Fred - that one's real easy to turn into a sport. The frame is like any of the earlier ones, just a longer steering head. Low bars, different tank and seat and fenders. They'll swap right over. Looks like it's even got the 18" rear.

    It's a wide 17" rear Akront, and also has the 8/33 rear drive. Funniest of all is it came with a Harley branded front tire on the rear wheel.

    The frame and swing arm are both a little longer, more gussets, ect. so it'll be heavier. I'll get it going and take as much of the cruiser stuff off as possible and see how it acts. I have a couple of early Tonti frames laying around and the breather arrangement seems to be the biggest hurdle.

    Others have put the 1100 cali motor in the early Tonti frames, so, it can be done. Post over on wildguzzi.com, someone there will be able to advise you on dealing with the breather arrangement.

    A V7 Sport, 750S, or 1000S replica with the 1100 motor would be a great bike! Or, of course, the Tonti bikes make for a nice custom cafe as well. We'll be anxious to see what you come up with!

    They confiscated my suspenders and corn-cob pipe over there:jack. I think I can search without an account tho!

    But seriously, I have an S3 seat and a LM2 tank laying around.

    Well, you've already got a good start!

    Yes, they get their panties in a twist over there pretty easily some days.

    Fred , I think the tank Rubber bumpers in the front are different going back to a sport style tank. The rear attachment is also different, im sure it can be overcome, ive seen plenty of calls turned cafe. Should be a fun project....and an awesome cheap start.

    Yes, it uses the side rubbers to anchor the tank in the front. But Guzzi left the V7 Sport style threaded bosses on the steering neck (to hold the big plastic covers) that the early tank rubbers screw to.

    I sure like the 1100 airbox better than the early versions, but no way that monster's going to fit under a non-Cali tank.

    Meanwhile I put on a Zadi switch I had laying around, popped in a battery and spun the motor and got compression and spark. One float bowl's cracked but that should be easy.

    Should have figured you would be on top of that.
    The airbox is nice, but what you point out is why so many have clamp on filters. It would be nice to retain the airbox.

    After I pulled all the busted stuff off and test-fitted a Cal III muffler I had laying around:
