Hello! hello... hello...

Looks like most of the original gang is still around. I still ride every chance I get and looking forward to a nice winter riding season here in Phoenix. Really wish I could have made the Vancouver meet-up this year, maybe next time.

aaaand I just had the pin taken out of my tibia yesterday from when I crashed the SC two years ago.
Got a few days sofa time coming up so no riding for a while. :think:

Still here...still riding. Glad you checked in.

Here we are still reading a lot threads about gas tanks...voltage rectifiers...the perpetually rehashed bonneville vs SC arguement...you're not missing too much. Lol.

let me brighten it up with some Moto Guzzi :) content then,
this is my current love affair, 1974 Moto Guzzi 850 T:





it is a fantastic ride, it has got 950cc and pumper carbs now, it has been repainted
in the stock tone, seat is a lately aquired NOS item.

all in all, the bike is a wulf in a sheep's dress IMO, it has longer than stock
rear shocks and handles pretty well.
I look like an adult with it and had zero troubles with the authorities so far,
main reason for me to get back to older bikes that aren't red.

;) :)


latest addition to the family, 1975 Moto Guzzi 750 S, another true love affair
for which I have searched quite some time now. Only ~ 1200 made, bought
from the last owner's daughter this spring, have a lot of work into it already
but it isn't on the road still. won't be too long now.

bike has got 850 cc, large valves, hp cam, 38mm pumper carbs and should be a true speed demon,
just found the correct swan neck handlebars the other week, but they need to be put on the bike yet.

:)





some week ago, I bought another Moto Guzzi on ebay, for the neighbor
this time.
someone had listed a rare 1000 S from 1990, without any pics but for a
pretty low buy now price that I could not believe at first.

anyway, bike is all sweet and has got a WBO aluminum tank to boot,
it came out pretty pretty nice after some polishing, the pics do not
do it justice so far, will try to come up with a better one later on.

it is a true show stopper in the flesh, all beautiful 750 S appears to be
a grey mouse beside it, will need a different seat in black though.





the 1000 S with open stacks on the 40mm carbs and big "open" Lafranconi
exhaust sounds unbelievable, but way too loud, as if it is asking for trouble,
same with the 750 S.

Hey Muschi,

Nice to see that you are still keeping an eye on us.

I have to say I am still loving the exhaust system I had made using the details you provided on your stepped headers :D
