  1. Sorry, but I don't recall the bolt size. You might have to do a bit of trial and error to find the right size. There is a washer between the lever and the foot peg to prevent binding. Mike
  2. Just for your consideration. I've sold 2 bikes in the last 60 days. So the good news is nice bikes, priced right, are selling. The bad news is I had to price them to sell in a declining market and a pandemic virus. My thought was even if the economy comes back, I'm not sure prices will recover much. You are doing the right thing on Ebay by including a "Make an Offer" button. You don't have to accept. You can make a counter offer. I thought about doing just that. I'd love to do a "Fly and Ride" from Georgia to Arizona. But I love my 1200 Sport and the 2 bikes a
  3. Am I missing something. It says "price reduced." But no price. Mike
  4. In remodeling my garage I wanted to hang some "garage art." One of the pieces I wanted was a 24 x 36 poster of the original design for the V11 LeMans submitted to Moto Guzzi from Marabese Designs. It is discussed on page 2 of this topic. Here is how I created one for under $50. Brian Boles is hosting the 250 mb file. 250 mb is 24 x 36 at 300 dpi. 300 dpi is magazine quality. Click on this link and download the file to a zip drive. http://www.brianboles.org/img/Stuff/V11_Proposal.tiff I took the zip drive to Staples who printed a 24 x 36 poster for $29.95 To frame it
  5. Thank you! The surprise to me was how small it is. It's not that much different is engine size than the V11 LeMans. But it feels diminutive compared to either of the other bikes. If you look at the pic, it could hide behind the V11 LeMans or Sport 1100. Someday I want to sit on my 1200 Sport and a Tonti naked. Perhaps a Mille and see how they compare. Mike
  6. Good eye Tim. Your old LeMans is alive and well. It serves as my GT bike. There is nothing in Moto Guzzi's current line that is comparable. I had a Scura/1200 Sport shootout in my garage to see which would be my "naked" bike. As you can see the Sport nudged out the Scura. No knock on the Scura. The refinement of the Sport trumped the sportiness of the Scura for me. The LeMans 3 is eye candy. Mostly it goes to breakfast. Mike
  7. I've struggled with this one. I've been tempted to add a red frame next to my LeMans. But decided to have 3 very different bikes and added a Carc and a Tonti instead. Mike
  8. The part number are: N0520.1AD and N0521.1AD. Check Amazon and maybe St Paul Harley Davidson. They are available. MIke
  9. It fit my 2002 Scura pretty well. Short wheelbase colors on a long wheelbase bike. Mike
  10. The pegs are tight. Neither lever is encumbered. I might adjust the shift lever down just a bit to compensate for the lower peg. Mike
  11. After a trip to the White Mtns. last month I decided to lower my V11 LeMans foot pegs for a bit more comfort. My mechanic and I found a way to lower the stock foot pegs using existing mounting holes. It lowers them about an inch. I can gain another inch if I switch to Buell pegs. But for now, these are significantly more comfortable. Attached are before and after pics of both sides. The left side is a simple swap. The right side needs a different bolt. (Still lovin' the bike Tim! It's my go to GT bike.) Mike
