You have to click the big guzzi button.
They still trying to flog that? It's been stuck to the floor for an eon. I wouldn't touch anything from NLM with a bargepole.

The deed is done. Here's Bongo's Le Mans 1. Having shaken internet hands on the deal, he'll be collecting it in November.

There is one for sale locally for $10000. I'd say that $4600 is pretty decent!

He sold this on ebay a few weeks ago.

I met Joe Caruso a few weeks back. He's a guzzi nut, I've never been in a house that had a kitchen full of engines before.

I bought a mk 2 from him to convert to a mk 1

Damn me Italia. You were two minutes from my house. You could have called in for a coffee.

Going round to Joe's Is quite an experience isn't it

Did he show you what he keeps under the cover in the kitchen?

Yes.

Amazing. He made a cup of tea and I stared at the frame paint.

I'll be back down that way to pick the bike up in June. I'll drop you a line nearer the day.

That fell through after they bumped the price post handshake. I bought this LM2 in the end:

Got to do something with those gaiters though.
