    I can do rings on a Ural faster than I can get away from UDF at times.

    Hey Folks,
    I hate to do this, but due to other interests as well as my current economic situation, I am putting my hack up for sale. This thing is not perfect, but a very cool setup that will not need much to be fun for many years to come.
    The tug is a '79 Moto Guzzi 1000SP, which has roughly 45k miles on it, and runs strong, pulls like a freight train. It has an aftermarket cafe style fairing, a solo seat from Harper's Moto Guzzi, and a sweet Acewell Digital Dashboard on it. I have the original fairing, dash, and seat to go with it, all in pretty good shape. I have recently rebuilt the brake hydraulics and replaced the pads, changed all the fluids, and serviced the ignition system with new points, coils, plugs, and leads, as well as performing timing and valve adjustments. I've rebuilt the carbs and synched them, but it does still run a bit rich, possibly needing a rejet. (It will blacken the spark plugs after a little while.) I have replaced the rear shocks with some nice Progressive units, and also have some Harley air shocks if the buyer wants them. The front forks have been serviced with new oil. The bike is stock, the best I can tell, and the only original part I don't think I have is the airbox, as it has some nice K&N filters on it. Tires are in great shape.
    The sidecar is a very nice Hannigan unit with a leveling system actuated via a switch on the handlebar. All lights work, and it comes with a vinyl tonneau cover that snaps on. This sidecar was about $8k new, and while it does have a nick or two in the paint, is overall still in very good condition, and was installed professionally by Hannigan. The rig is stable at 80 mph, and tracks straight, with or without a passenger. I have ridden this thing with a 240 lb man, and I have ridden it with my 4 year old, and although you can feel extra weight on acceleration and braking, it works well either way. The sidecar also has a new Progressive Suspension shock on it
    I bought this thing earlier this year to ride around with my son, and he loves it, as do I, but in the wake of the pandemic, my savings have been depleted, after having been furloughed from work for several weeks, and making mortuary arrangements for my father. 2020 has been a rough year, but I look forward to the future.
    This rig isn't costing me anything to keep, but is for sale to the right buyer, in the name of easing some financial stress. Let me know if you are interested.

    Pretty poor choice of suit and tie for camping. Some thing a bit less formal, such as a blazer and ascot, would be more appropriate.

    Nice color but not that rare. I had the same color combo.

    I agree, I have never liked it either, but it looks really good on that Guzzi. Great price too.
