    I found these Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport cylinder crash bars in a parts bin, which came with a parts 1100 Sport bike I bought. Finding those Moto International crash bars was a nice surprise.

    This tank just needs a little TLC.... :)

    I would love to know on what had happened to this tank / bike........ Everything electric was working on this bike when I bought it earlier this year. The tank was the only part rusted on the entire bike. The cylinders were removed and cleaned, but they were never reinstalled. Everything on this bike was there, except the engine's starter, the front fairing, seat, the air box, and the exhaust header pipes. From what I had been told, this bike was sitting in storage at a climate controlled warehouse for ten years, and I believe it. This bike was really dusty when I picked it up, but the tank was the only damaged part on this bike.

    Let the healing begin!

    The repair shop apparently started to work on this bike and then abruptly just stopped. My assumption would be that the repair cost must had skyrocketed, and the original owner just walked away and forfeit his bike to the shop....
    fullsizeoutput_2364c.jpeg

    I also wonder on why both cylinders were removed and cleaned?

    This bike would had turned into a money pit if I would had attempted to restore it, so I decided to take it completely apart and to use all good parts on a custom 1100 Sport that I'm building out of another restoration project bike I own.
    fullsizeoutput_235f2.jpeg

    I'm getting ready to reinstall the cylinders, clean the engine, and then let a machine builder examine and repair this engine and gearbox, if needed.

    This is one of my other 1997 1100 Sport's. This is the way the bike above once looked like.

    1995 Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport. Assuming that the serial numbers Moto Guzzi assigned to the 1994 - 1997 1100 Sport's production run are correct, then this bike is # 00029 out of 03085 total bikes build.

    I installed a inner carbon rear wheel fender that I had lying around the barn for years today. It actually looks pretty nice installed, and the fenders carbon is a perfect match with the carbon exhaust installed on this bike.

    And this is what happens when there are more bikes sitting in the stable then there are days in a week. This blue bike hasn't moved in about six month, and the black bike in the front of it hasn't moved in three years........

    Somewhere along the NEBDR section 3 my bike started sounding like the timing chain went south so I attempted a roadside repair before packing up and hauling her home (still broken)
