Guzzi 1000S owners?

I could really use a few photos, maybe with a tape measure laid out beside a few frame shots, to try to weld all the seat and other brackets back on this:



Thanks,

I've got a T3 that I can take pictures of, if you want. I'm guessing you want to restore the rear frame/seat rails, right? That'll be a nice bike when you're done. I'll look forward to seeing your progress.

Thanks, but the T3 frame mounting of the seat, coils and seat lock are different. Looks like another 1000S owner responded.

There is a motoguzzi restoration book which contains engineering drawings of the frames.
It's new enough that I think it should include the 1000s, I'll take a look at my stash and see if it does.

Wow thanks. Hell, I might buy a copy if it does.

Thanks

It's out of print now
I'm a long ways away from finding the book to confirm if it's got the drawings in it

Mick Walkers Moto Guzzi Twin restoration.

But here's an amazon link to it.
http://www.amazon.com/Guzzi-Twins-Re.../dp/0760319863

Currently selling for around $200

I just had a look in my library - and can't find Mick's Restoration book - some bastard's borrowed it and ... But$200? Mine was 10.95 new! There might be a murky market in stolen Mick Walker books!
Falloon is dismissive of the 1000S and includes only one small B&W picture and no detail; Colombo has a bigger B&W PR Handout pic, but both have the saddles on (fair enough!) so the detail you seek isn't available.
How different is the frame? All else seems to be pretty regular Tonti fare; and which Philistine cut it up in the first place?

I realized I have that book. I dug it out and it has a V7 Sport frame drawing, and a quota and a Daytona, but that's about it.

Ok I know there's some book out there that has more then one Tonti frame engineering drawings in it.
Or a parts manual, or something. I know it's not in the Guzziology that I have.

Or at least offer to sell you a corn-cob pipe and a set of suspenders.
