V7ii Special 2015 (Original colour: RED).
First reg: Nov 2015
Mods, all done by Motostrada in Shipley (except for the heated gear connector), and fully approved:
- Spoked wheels with black rims
- Powder coated everything
- Handmade brown ‘Bentley’ anodine leather seat
- Small cone custom-made exhaust silencers. They are tilted up, so the rear footpegs were moved to accommodate the cans. This bike sounds like a WW2 Spitfire taking off.
- Motostrada tail tidy and rear light set.
- Switched supply for Gerbing heated gloves/clothes installed (tucked under the saddle when not in use)
- Petrol tank stripped back to the metal and repainted in vintage black with vintage Guzzi logos
- Heidenau K60 dual sport tires
- Renthal “Fat Bar” handlebars
- New blank aluminium side panels
- Shortened black front mudguard.
I’ll also include:
- A waterproof cafe-racer-style single seat.
- The original never-used Pirelli Sport Demon road tires
The bike has about 4756 miles on it, but had an entirely new engine fitted at 1672 miles. The engine was replaced because a bracket holding the drive shaft came loose and got churned up in the drive shaft. No problems since.
It was serviced this summer. Full service history from InMoto in Croydon; one of only two official Moto Guzzi service places in London. They did the engine replacement too, under warranty. (A new engine came from Italy.)
Due for its next MOT, Oct 24th. Comes with both keys, the service book and the manual.
Things that are not right, IMHO:
- The right bar end seems to have a wee scrape on it. Only on the bar-end cap. I might have replaced it by the time you see the bike
- The key is getting a bit sticky in the fuel cap. Might just need a spray of WD40, or perhaps a new fuel cap.
This bike just completed the Malle Rally 2020 and performed like a demon. I was on a team that included a Griso and a new Triumph Scrambler 1200, and while they undoubtedly had more muscle, this bike held her own, and sounded better than any other bike on the rally IMHO. A superb unique looking custom - I'm only selling because I came upon a really keenly priced Ducati Scrambler 1100 and I'm out of garage space.
