  1. Thanks for your input Pete,your right in that I'm probably over thinking this whole thing. I bought the Eldorado from the "Guzzi doctor "in north Chicago, it's being shipped next week. He reported that their is some chrome and rubber bits from the tensioner when he dropped the oil pan. I've ordered a new set of 850 "Gilardoni" cylinder and piston kit to cover the chrome issue,( I almost went with a big bore kit,but reason kicked in). So now it's down to the timing problem. Was 74 the first year for the change from gears to chain,and in the swap the cam changed from a
  2. Another great read that I stumbled upon, I just purchased a 74 Eldorado, thats needing a chain tensioner/chain,my plan is to install the the gear setup and eliminate the chain altogether. Why did Guzzi drop the gears and go with ,what seems to be a lesser chain setup? Also from what I've read they had three different gear setups, the difference being the number of teeth (gear pitch)? On the three different sets. Is their any advantage to more or less teeth on the gear sets? Any thoughts on this would be appreciated!

    Very nice! Why the 4 holes along the bend line,seems like this would make it more prone to cracking along this line?
  6. Looks great! Who makes the lamp/kit? More detail on your install please.
  7. Truly a labor of love,you should be very proud! WELL DONE
  8. Funds sent, Seeing your work as got me interested in powder coating. Year's ago I played around with a HF rig on some gun parts, and was wondering what equipment you use,or recommend .Thanks
  9. Outstanding effort Chuck,two months ago I didn't think there was any chance of ever getting one these. THANK YOU for making it happen!
  10. Small world, very similar one popped-up on E-bay two days ago,listed in Beaverton, with 25k miles. So many bikes,so little time!
  11. Black is fine with me ,thanks for asking.
  12. "Eazy Glide" manual fuel tap mod, now that sounds interesting, Tell me more!
  13. Hi Doc, if you read the article it explains that a small bracket needs to be fabricated to adapt the Centauro lever. This photo kind of shows the mod that is needed ,but isn't really clear. Don't think it's to tuff to fabricate. I'm getting ready to try this set up,but I'm hoping for Chuck's lever extension part to be installed at the same time, not sure how it's going to work out.
  14. Hello,you are not alone in your search for a better riding position for your V11. Here is an article that I found helpful in addressing this problem, http://www.obairlann.net/reaper/motorcycle/guzzi/ergos/ The peg lowering is accomplished by using Centauro foot pegs and levers, seems like a very clean way to go,although these parts are very hard to find. Let us know how you make out on this,and Welcome!
