Also replaced the PO-installed 14 tooth front sprocket with a stock 15 tooth, much better road bike now.

Edit to clarify 705 tires.
Two years and ~5000 miles of urban commando duty and they're still kicking. I do no dirt, very little freeway riding and have a couple of nice corners on my way to work to keep the flat spots away

When I bought these BB gave me a hella deal on a second set, hopefully I can wear them out before my second set goes bad.

Big for my 705s

Huge piles of Guzzi that aren't motorcycle shaped.
