Months later.....
Ordered some bits from Gutsi bits in the UK and they arrived this week.
Fitted new ignition coils as the old ones had was coming out of them.
New carb rubbers and choke cables too.
Waiting on the Dyna Ignition trigger unit to replace the points set up which apparently is hard to get right and goes out of tune fast.
Then its off to get it vinned and see if its any good to ride or move it on.
I hoping for light responsive back road run.

I did and he had too many " no longer available' replys to my parts list for parts I knew were.

Wicked

Dyna Ignition arrived, fitted it and it didn't work.
Spat Dummy, removed Dyna ignition and put back in box.
Scoured internet for clues.
Refitted Dyna ignition and it didn't work.
12 volts on multimeter to ignition unit.
Armed with net info, rigged up BMW indicator light across coil.
Nothing.
Ran separate wire to ignition from battery and hey presto light came on.
Progress.
Set up timing a
nd started engine, life.
Found evil wiring connection.

Buoyed with success fitted faring and rest of electrics.
Donned some bike gear but with trainers in preparation of walking home.
Did 20 minutes of back streets....even got a nod off a sports bike.



So that's every old shitter in my shed running and some even road legal.
So work done of Guzzi consists of:
Replacing the spaghetti 32mm forks with 35mm Lemans ones.
Replacing the bicycle cup and cone steering head bearings with Taper ones.
( this requires the longer steering stem which just happened to come with forks).
Mate making up spacers for discs.
Rebuilding calipers
getting a final drive from Germany
rebuilding the shaft.
new ignition system.
In house terms probably overcapitalised.
It is cool tinkering with various bikes though.

does it have enough performance to be interesting or do you have to find other fun things about riding it?

Thats a good question and once I get some tyres and a vin I can try it out.
It supposed to have about 40 hp and its very light so who knows.
A guy PM's me saying it was more fun than than an R65 and I really liked that.
It sure sounds nice.

Got new Metzlers for 1/2 a Guzzi today, not bad $ 380 including fitting to bike, tubes and balancing.
Used it as my pit bike at Hampton Downs today. Lots of positive comments like " WTF is that" and " Honey I shrunk the Guzzi"

Goes ok.
Overhauled the remaining from caliper on the weekend so the other 1/2 of the front brake works.
They have linked brakes you know, foot brake does the rear disc and the lh front one, handlebar one does the front right.
The front right is pretty good now, better than the R80ST one.
Next steps are:
1) stat declaration signed by local JP
2) No brake cert required form printed out
3) copy of receipt from seller
4) book it in for vinning.

Keen to see what it goes like on the open road.
Off to 'Nam in 3 weeks so wont be till late September

Not often over this side of the ditch, so haven't seen this thread before... however:
My missus has a Monza she bought brand-new with her very first pay-cheque out of Uni, in December 1981. She still has it.

It's done about 150,000km and has had some work done over the years, but as far as worthwhile mods go, yes, the Dyna S elecky ignition is top of the pops; then taper roller bearings in the steering.
Get rid of the air-assisted fork cartridges and fit BiTubo items - no air assist, but they work just fine - no need for LM forks. An under-guard fork-brace is available and helps stiffen up the front end, but the biggest improvement is in those steering-head bearings.

Braided brake lines are a good idea if not already done.
Do you have a copy of Guzzilogy by Dave Richardson at Moto International in Seattle? If not, try and get a look at one - he has a simple modification that boosts power to the starter circuit.
We have a vented sump spacer from Agostini, but it's porous: if you can get one from a letr model, like a 650 or 750, it's worth having, as it boosts sump capacity.
Be wary of trying to fit final drives & swingarms from other models - they have different splines - especially the Lario.
The Monza is very similar to the V50/3 - except the /3 has different gearing in the intermediate transfer case, plus different bars, pegs, lamps & instruments; these two have bigger carbies than the V50/2.

Oh, and the black plastic vent that's come off your sidecover is a common thing: we long-ago had one-piece sidecovers made up in glass.
Any Q's, feel free to ask - perhaps via PM.

Hi , thanks for the post, this list of stuff I mentioned is now all done, once I get it Vinned I'll consign the rear air assisted shocks to the bin and fit the Konis ( once I rebuild them)
Got my eye on this....http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...x?id=753606259
Was looking at a 850T dressed up as a V7 but got a bit rich for me.
http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...x?id=740241077
My research in Guzziology suggests I could build one from a Cali 3.
I'm getting a bit bored with BMW's, need some quirkyness in my life.
cheers John
any pics of your Monza?
