  2. Those very same bikes were for sale when I had my 1974 Norton Commando, back in 1976......its kind of a museum, but still a cool place!
  3. Good idea about using a poly cutting board to use the factory stand! Thanks docc!
  4. Yup, they work fine. I have used mine a ton and it's holding up. You can't beat the price/value. As everyone has said, plan on replacing the front wheel clamp with a ride on type. The Stock unit will hold up a Honda CT90, but not much else. The shipping box is huge and realllllly heavy, so factor in a large pickup to get it, and some help to load and unload the beast. I decided to unload mine at home by myself and ended up dropping the thing on my foot. Damn it hurt something awful for the longest time! Andy

    New Rotors

    A buddy of mine has the EBC rotors on his bike, along with their sintered pads and raves about them. The replacement rotors are item VR614gld. I think the pads are item FA244HH. They come stock with a black center hub, but the gold is available as special order and looks good ala "brembo". They look good. The rotors are wave design, so they are different looking than the stock brembos, but are lighter. http://ebcbrakes.com/Assets/ecatalogues/AUG_2016_USA_Motorcycle_Catalogue/USA-MC-August.html#p=100 Andy
  6. https://www.amazon.com/MOTUL-7100-Synthetic-Ester-Motor/dp/B00IKCYD76/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1479643459&sr=8-4&keywords=motul+10-60 since the 15-50 is ridiculously expensive, and Guzzi recommends 10-60 any more, I go with it. Damnnnnn tooting! Next round I'm in with that. I get my Redline Heavy via Amazon, and I'll get my Motul there too. Thanks Chuck. Andy
  7. +1 for Motul. I've been using the full synthetic 15 - 50 300V Motul for about 6 years and the inside of my case is shinny clean....it's amazing oil but hella expensive at around $19.00 US for a liter. I did about 10 K break in miles with conventional oil and then switched over to full synthetic, first Mobil 1, then Motul. Andy
  8. Chuck, thanks so much! I'll finalize PayPal with you tomorrow AM. Andy
  9. Did I miss out again? Bummer... I haven't checked in for a while....if there's one still available, I' d still like one. Thanks for making them available! Andy
  10. Chuck, I'd be in for one too, if you still have any available still. Will send you contact info via email tomorrow. Thanks! Andy
  11. Your bike looks like a nice compilation of several bikes.. I'd say the handlebar set up is adding to the vibes. It looks like a conversion, with a riser perhaps. I note there are no bar ends...my stock LeMans really tamed down the vibes with a heavy set of bar end weights, change of grips. It's an easy cheap "try before you pry". Open your engine! Andy
  12. Dig it! You're right, that set up will roar. Mid range might suffer a bit though, but it would be worth the aural experience to fide it until your neighbors revolt! Andy
  13. I got the harness setup from Lonelec. It works perfectly and they offer the proper drivers and have good customer support.
  14. That's weird because he just told me yesterday that they had gone up in price from $230 US to $250 US. Whatever it is, he's got that from me, and if it is the lower price you quote, then he can keep the difference and have a few beers on me for the holidays! Andy
  15. I'm in! Email sent to you Pete. Andy
