Joes a great guy. If you snapped him half he'd have Guzzi written through the middle. If you go to his house you'll laugh at what's in the kitchen.

He sold this on ebay a few weeks ago.

These are the Prices mine and a couple of mates Guzzis have sold for over the past couple of years.

T3 Cali - 2400
G5 - 800
Immaculate Quota - 2200
V7 with Fuel injected engine fitted - 2000
Modified T3 - No takers so broken for parts
SP 1000 - 1500

This is a mates and was up for 3000 but had no takers. The Triumph dealer, where the picture was taken, valued it at 1000 against a new Bonnie.



Quota that sold for 2200 - had been advertised at 2750.



My 2001 Cali - sold for 3000 to the only person who answered the ads. I thought I was going to have to drop much lower to move it.



I know they aren't Le Mans but it gives you an idea on the pricing.

The bike on the right was less than 2k to buy and has recently been sold on Ebay.

Those are some amazing prices for some amazing bikes
the 1000s for 3000 pounds
is it still available?

You guys think they're overpriced in the UK? Check out this ass:

1977 moto guzzi lemans 850 - $20000 (Columbia City, IN)

This bike is in mint condition with only 3,724 miles.. I'm not certain this bike is worth $20k, but I'm not sure I'd let it go for anything less? This is probably the nicest series 1 lemans you'll ever come across? If interested I might be open to trading for the following: 60's/70's muscle car, truck, motorcycles, lawn care equipment, basically let me know what you might have that's cool?

It morphed into the red bike and was sold on Ebay. I'll ask him how much for.

I'll ask him. He ended up chopping his T140 in against a new Enfield 500 Efi so may well keep the 1000s.

I've just had a look at our local Guzzi dealers website. They have just sold a 78 Le Mans for 3,000 so it isn't all the dealers asking high prices. Probably just the Southern dealers (again) far too many folk down there with more money than sense.



Rockinghams website is always worth keeping an eye on. Mark the owner is a decent bloke and his bikes are always good. I kkep looking at the little Douglas he has in http://www.meadeanhosting.co.uk/rcands/

Just spoke to Mick. The 1000s is still for sale, he has a Le Mans as well so the two are too similar.

His emails m.j.kemp(@)talktalk.net obviously without the brackets round the @

It's up for 3,000. Micks a precision machinist so everything is as you'd expect from somebody in that profession.

Nope! It's just a pile of bits at the minute. The sale of the 1000S is going to fund a comprehensive rebuild. It's a Mk 2 not a Mk 1.

If you think it looks good wait until you ride it. That's a seriously quick machine.
