This bike started life on the east coast and was bought by a friend of mine a few years ago from the original owner. My friend moved out here and looked me up to help him service the bike. I have been servicing, restoring, collecting and preserving guzzi's for many years. The bike was a bit rough but was very stock. Short story is, i purchased the bike from him last year to preserve it and to get it back on the road as the loving beast it is. I completely went through the entire bike. The heads were completely rebuilt with new valves, guides, etc. They were in great shape but i like to be safe with the intention of making sure someone is getting a great solid bike. All seals, gaskets, hoses, bearings, and rubber bits were replaced including intake boots. I also replaced the timing chain tensioner, timing chain, and oil pump sprocket. The pistons, rings and cylinder bores look fantastic as did the main bearings which tells me the bike was serviced on a regular basis. Carbs were completely rebuilt with new everything. The clutch had been replaced at one point but was in great condition so i left it alone. Rear drive was rebuilt and shimmed as was the trans. It is sporting a brand new pair of pirelli sport demon tires. She also has a set of dyna coils along with a brand new dyna ignition. The original owner had rat holed away the original exhaust, seat, and chrome bits so they have very few miles on them and look great. The bike also has a brand new duracell motorcycle specific battery and also has a brand new valeo starter. It is rare to find one with all the original bits on it. This thing is running so good! I just re torqued the heads for the final time and gave it a good tuning. She is a runner with an awesome personality. Cosmetically the bike has allot of honest riding wear from running up and down the east coast most of its life. The paint on the side covers is worn through and peeling off in many places. I have another 1000s here i am looking after for a very good friend that has the same type of wear from being ridden allot too. All paint is original though! Overall, the bike just has a very cool character and wants to be ridden. The decals and even new side covers are readily available if one wished to repaint a set. I am a stickler for keeping things as original as possible though. I will include a near new complete lafranconi competzione exhaust with head pipes and crossover. I will also include the stock points set, reflectors, and jets. I have put allot of time and money into this bike and would feel safe taking it anywhere anytime just as any guzzi can. I know i am leaving allot out so please feel free to ask questions. These bike are really rare and are going up extremely fast. I have sold and shipped many bikes with great results. The bike will be kept in a safe dry shop until shipping arrangements can be made.
