Yes, I did. I'm thinking of using the "other" rotor with an aluminum carrier. That okay with you? But I may look for a lighter rotor to start.

rotors

YES that is why i have included it in the box at the last minute. If you find something lighter go ahead....you can use that stock guzzi rotor as a weapon --really you can kill someone with that piece...

at the end

And at the end here it is, in its full splendor. My Guzzi V65ttR Big Bend

We will continue improving it but it is functional now.

Thank you audience for your patience.

Cool thread, bike, and build!

I guess I'm one lucky guy because I had a demo ride on a V65 TT back in the day in Seattle, not knowing so few were imported. Since my main ride back then was an SR500, the V65 seemed like it had plenty of power. My then spouse put the ki-bosh on buying a new bike though, so I had to continue to enjoy the charms of the SR.

Had to stop in and simply say this is fantastic and that the few words I can say here do not capture how great this build is...

Thank you for this thread!
