thanks all!

It's been a real fun project. It was barn fresh, had been
stored for about 15 or so years and had been through a
small fire when I got it.

It's a bit further along now - I can actually start the
engine now, but still need to finish some small things
like brakes, headlight.

Damn, please don't let this thread be over. I'm getting high looking at all these Guzzis. I pine for my Black California EV, about to be sold, which I would show you pictures of if I could make up my mind about a digital camera...but thats another thread.

I had a rare opportunity yesterday. The fellow I bought my V-50 Monza from was firing up his recently (mostly) completed Red Frame Rep V-7 Sport. I went over and helped fiddle with the clutch and got to watch him ride a bit.
Unfortunately, I only had my phone with me, so forgive the pic quality.
The good news was it was just the inspiration I needed to go home and begin the re-assembly of my 350 Scrambler.

Here it is. Once again, sorry for the photo quality. (or lack thereof)

Sweet Quotas. I regret not buying a new leftover in 2000. But, no looking back now that I'm back on italian machinery.

For the first time since 2001 I have a running Guzzi in the garage. I know she's no beauty queen but she's mine. I rebuilt/replaced/shimmed/cleaned everything on the inside where it matters.

I was going to sell it for project cash when I got it finished but the wife has claimed it as her own, she even likes the boards.

There's a certain satisfaction to riding a bike that you've been through. No mysteries here.

That's a sweet T-3! Nice job!

I think Guzz had a winner with the T series. Kinda sport-touring-standards. Of their day.

A bit of an update...


Here's my Le Mans 1000 on one of the few dry days this year:



in the meantime I removed the screen as it was causing a lot of turbulences at high speeds and it just looks way better without.


And here are 2 nice german customs at a meeting last sunday:
