Tell us about your bike

I’ve been considering selling my Guzzi over Christmas to finance another project bike that I’m doing and to free up some garage space. I posted it up here last year and then got cold feet and pulled the ad! Its not an easy decision to sell as I love this bike but I either make some more changes to it (a project bike is never finished!) or move it on to let someone else enjoy it.

I bought the bike in May 2012 as a very scruffy example with poor paint, terrible electrics and floorboards. The engine and gearbox ran really nicely though so they were just cleaned up and painted. The frame is in good original condition, touched up in places so I decided to leave it as I didnt want the bike to loose all of its previous patina.  New lower frame rails and stainless linkages have been added to remove the footboards and return to standard footpeg arrangement The lower rails powder coated black. The following is a list of whats been done that I can remember,


  • Complete re-wire by Ferrets Electronikary to the original wiring diagram with all Japanese connectors and Dynatek Electronic ignition (approx. £1500). All components can be un-plugged and removed if required. This give great piece of mind on a 70’s Italian bike.
  • Front Forks re-built and powder coated by MH Racing in Chippenham
  • Wheels were acid dipped, blasted and re-powder coated in satin black with all new seals, bearings and cush rubbers.
  • Brakes were re-built with new seals pistons braded hoses and pads (back in 2013) they are still linked.
  • All new lights, indicators, etc. Gutsibits dash panel replaced the Spada rubber one it had on when I got it. Custom made ally Volt meter holder fixed off the top yolk.
  • Replaced lower rails, foot pegs and brackets all powder coated. New Stainless steel gear and brake linkages.
  • Rear mudguard cut down and both original stainless mudguards powder coated gloss black.
  • Seat re-covered with original T3 seat pan, Re-shaped Spada foam and tuck and roll vinyl cover with embroidered Guzzi logo.
  • Tanks and side panels re-painted by Ultimate Bike Paint. The intention with this design was to disguise the bulk of the standard T3 tank and I think it came out well. The colour is metallic black with solid white panels with thick red pin stripes. All finished with Pearl Lacquer. It looks amazing in the sun.
  • Currently has RedMax flat track black handlebars with Tomaselli grips.
  • The exhausts have custom stainless silencers powder coated black with heat resistant coating.
  • I had originally wrapped he front pipes with heat tape. However I have removed this recently as it was looking tatty and sprayed with black VHT paint.


I’ve done about 6000 miles on it since the build and its never let me down. It runs great and is just as happy to sit at motorway speeds as blasting through the backroads. The bike is in lovely condition but is no garage queen. I have regularly ridden it and always cleaned it thoroughly if its got dirty or wet. I think its priced fairly based on its condition and the amount of work thats gone into this bike.


Please come and see it if interested as viewing is highly recomended.
