    I don't know what took me so long to come to Guzzi, now I don't see me without one. It just feels right, the look of them, layout of the power train, the way they make you feel. I feel more connected to my Breva than I ever did to a UJM, more comfortable, relaxed.

    The Rosso Modello, I think that's right, is what 1st lured me in, dead dammed sexy!

    I'm enjoying watching you build this, AWESOME WORK!!

    No. It got stalled by work and the desire to pick low hanging fruit in the form of my almost finished Rickman Triumph. I'm hoping to get the Triumph on the road this summer and then work on the Guzzi this coming winter.

    So no.

    I came close to parting it out to a friend who wants the engine but while I could sell some of my other bikes I really want to keep this one. The trouble is that I've collected a few BMW projects and they're taking the my limited time.

    I bought this bike and it's cool but has been nothing but trouble. Right now I'm on my second week of rebuilding the engine and that's happening over here.

    I will get back to the Guzzi but it might not be for a while. BMW's are the priority for me at the moment.

    Sorry and thanks for checking in.

    So you start a project claiming to make an”Eagle of Zeus” and then neglect it for Bavarian heathens? No wonder the gods are angry at you!
