Glad to hear that the quality of your Guzzi is good. Also, if you replaced the floorboards with pegs, there isn't much "cruiser-ish" about this bike, IMHO.
The only problem I have with Guzzi is that my inseam (36") tends to put my knees around my ears and/or shins in the motor depending on the model.

OK, I looked again, and the mufflers are a bit too long - other than that, it's pretty sweet.

2013 moto guzzi california custom

the 2013 cal custom does have long pipes . can they be replaced with slightly shorter pipes in an all black color ? if you attach black pipes to the mg cal custom chrome engine heads would you also put black paint on the top of the engine fins ? i have always appreciated floorboards . my feet and legs feel more stable on floorboards . i think the cal custom's headlight cowling is a cool design .

^All things are possible. Just my impression that it looks more like a "stylish standard" than a cruiser to me.
And with size 14 feet, floorboards always seem to be awkward and in the way.

Why would someone want it to look MORE like a HD or Victory? Style is subjective, but I always felt that MoCo's pushing blacked out look was selling a cheaper bike (powder coat) for the same money as costly chrome or polished stainless.

NO. I just made it up to fuck with you d00ds...

I supplied my source. Either call them, or your local dealer, if you need verification.

Todd Haven of MPH posted the flyer on WildGuzzi last week.

P.S. Moto Guzzi's USA webpage is notoriously outdated and the last place you will find updated info of any kind.

Fair price

I think for what you get, it's a DAMN GOOD PRICE!! I don't even own a Guzzi.....YET!!

But this one could easily change that. I've wanted one for years, finances just weren't right, hopefully soon.

Hell, even Mama says it's sweet! If they say so, it MUST be, you know they're NEVER wrong!

It looks so damn good, with the jugs in the wind, BIGGUNS at that, and the craftsmanship, reliability, supposed handling.

I could go on, but my keyboard ain't marine grade!
