What’s it like to ride?. 1970’s Guzzis. Totally a drug… I would also add that the Guzzis from the era have an enviable reputation for reliability and simple maintenance which are not attributes shared by their contemporary Ducatis.
This is a 1968 Moto Guzzi V7, the first of the V twin models, 700cc, 4 speed gearbox, electric start. The bike starts and runs very well, it is in very original condition. All electrics work, has a new battery and the tyres are good.
Located in Darlington. Crack in the tail light as pictured. I brought the bike back from Holland in 2015 and rode it around for a few years on historic rego. It was recently taken to Motociclo in St Peters for a new oil pressure switch and air filter - I have the paperwork from them also saying the bike's general condition.
This is a 1976 Moto Guzzi V1000 Convert, automatic. I have attached a picture of another Guzzi I have that started off similar to a standard Convert but with a 5 speed manual gearbox. It is not perfect, the seat base is rusty, the tank is good inside but paintwork average, it is still the original paint.
