Getting onto a bike again after many years away. Yep kick off with a second hand Guzzi should be the way to go. Low k's, not that old, want to ride but am confronted with poor parts supply. Just wanting to hear stories of Guzzi bikes that are garaged in the bush.
I have been bak into 2 wheels for a year after been off them for the last 25
I bought a bought a bike from the land of the rising sun (although made in Italy) and loved been back on two wheels so much thought I would buy something different that I can work on as a project as well as ride. I found an '84 Cali II Convert through a friend.
I've still got the tuning (carbs & dizzy) to do then it's out for a spin. The wife and son think it's a cool bike so it gets the thumbs up.
Weekend rider, interested in day rides out of Melbourne.
I mainly ride dirt bikes,but also like Italian machines. I have had a few bevel drives in my time, and recently sold my MHR. I cant believe the money people are paying for them. Anyway I wanted to get another bike that was cheaper to maintain and still handled well with that V twin sound. Why not a Guzzi? I was a member of the Guzzi owners club in Victoria, even though I road a Ducati, as the guys and gals there are the best. I did cop lot of ribbing over, as they call it, a rolling time bomb. Referring to the big end. I did go to a couple Ducati owners meetings, well we will leave it at that. So far very happy with the machine.
Retired, regular rider. Bike is self maintained.
Have regularly ridden and owned at least one bike since my first (Suzuki GS400) in 1979. Love just about anything with a vee twin and 2 wheels but particularly anything from Mandello.
Bike was originally LAPD spec (ape hangers, footboards etc) but apparently was sold as a civvie. I've converted it to 'Euro' specs and it's a much nicer thing to ride.
I'm in the process of restoring the Falcone. It's been off the road while I raised a family. I bought it in 1973 second hand from Ryans in Parramatta for the princely sum of $720
Confessed Guzzi tragic. Owned Ducati since 1976 but now "seen the light " and converted to Guzzi.
