  1. Hi, if you just brush on ACF50 sparcely and wipe the surplus off with a rag it will keep it free of corrosion for a long time. I use it on all my guzzi bare (unpainted) crankcases also for the last 20 years with great success. Good luck with your build, i love the wheels but question the tank,its too bulky to look fast...
  2. With thanks to Patrick Hayes of the Google Group 'Guzzi Singles'(Sorry,its not a dating site) who supplied the article andits translation. Meanwhile,We are all waiting for the virtual EICMA...will a new V85 Le Mans be revealed? Greetings from Cork!
  3. https://www.moto.it/news/nico-cereghini-il-museo-guzzi-sara-bellissimo.htmlTranslation by Google:Nico Cereghini: "Will the Guzzi museum be beautiful?"November 2, 2020 - The Piaggio Group Board of Directors approved theredevelopment project of the Moto Guzzi museum and the entire productionarea of Mandello. It will be a famous archistar to take care of it.Even if there is no other news for now, fans rejoiceHello everyone! At the end of September, when I anticipated that MotoGuzzi's 100th birthday would be celebrated in 2021 (read the article),many of you raised the theme of the Mandello museum.
  4. We were in Mandello a dozen or so years ago for the first time, myself on my old T5, (still going strong with ALL its original electrics, never seen the valves or the pistons after 35 years and 120000 km) and my friend on his Rosso Mandello. Just after arriving in the Abbadia Lariana campsite we sat at the bar for a beer. This young lad in Guzzi overalls arrives and ask my friend: 'You want Ohlins? 100 euros!' He went out and came back with a brand new back shock.After getting his money he said:' Want another one?' and off he went for it. Northern Italy works in marvellous
  5. What realy excites me is to ride my bike 'on the cam'. And that applies to any bike at all. Its just that you cannot ride anything modern and powerfull in such way if you want to be back home for your supper and not ending in a box or in jail. I have a few small bikes like an Airone Sport or a Bultaco 350 and enjoy them immensely when i can wring them around coaxing every horse availlable to stay 'in the zone' and on song. May be i am old fashioned and missing something but the Airone at 60mph is more fun than my ex Stelvio at 130. Many customers aren't looking for silly p
  6. Hi to all, My Stelvio's battery was fitted in Guzzi's factory in february 2008 and still does the job. It reads 11.8 volts after 4 weeks of non-use and stays there. Its an AGM Yuasa made in USA, and, as far as i know, they are made in the same factory (that belongs to the Enersys group)as Hawker Odysseys and Genesys .batteries. I had bought an identical replacement nbattery a good while ago just in case but so far so good with the 12 years old one.. Now we dont have severely cold winters in Cork.b
  7. Lads, the specific forum for V11 in France is : www.forumtwinzone.fr
  8. 2 springs arrived in Cork, great initiative, thanks for all the work. Have you many of them left? If so I could contact the french v11 forum and advertise.
  9. Hi Mark, yes , they are more comfortable as for grounding its not with the wet and greasy roads we have at present in the Cork-Kerry mountains that i will be trying to lean too far ... I changed the bars as well for a second hand triumph set and between bars and foot pegs it makes for a much easier ride with less weight on the front wheel. AND : heated grips...(used to be for Sissies but perceptions changes)
  10. Hi Mark, After Recently fitting lowered and advanced pegs i had the same problem with my brake lever this is how i extended it: simple and adjustable. 8 mm aluminium plate with a 10 mm s/s coach bold as a pedal. a milling machine is handy for the groove, but by no means essential. Hope it Helps.Greetings from (very wild) Cork tonight. Luc
  11. Hi there Scud, Payment sent for two springs as well. Thanks for your initiative its well appreciated. Cheers from Cork.
  12. Pete said that just the pad in the carbon covering is availlable new from Guzzi for E203! I found a cowl from another fellow in France for E50. Its red an does not look too out of place on a greenie. Making the usual mods on the bike at the moment: - fitted bars that dont have me looking like a toad on a fountain spout and also a set of adjustable foot pegs. -A Big blade 30Amp fuse and its holder to replace 'melting no.3, and i am making a pannier rack copying my friends genuine Guzzi one. All that for an Alpine spin next june. This forum has been a great he
  13. Pete from Reboot just told me recently that he does not have one, but you could, if you realy realy want one absolutely buy a new one for E203 ...
  14. Yes the headstock is standard .the forks are from a T5 Frame paint is Ford tractor blue and was E10 a liter! Hereis another picture of the fishtail, made by welding together different ready made sections of 'dairy tube' widely availlable.
  15. Built this a dozen years ago from a G5, but its now an 850 and still going strong, lot of home made parts (exhausts, handlebars, battery box ,seat,) John Williams (tank shop)made the tank and mudguard
