  1. Did anyone else have trouble opening these attachments? Mike
  2. Great pic! FYI, I'm filing a claim with UPS today. The seller believes it was damaged in shipment. Mike
  3. The tank looked perfect when I got it. I'm sure it was new. There were no obvious nicks or imperfections that would indicate it had been dropped or damaged. His best guess is it had been sitting on a shelf for 18 years and somehow cracked. I'm inclined to agree with him. I'm in touch with seller about finding a solution. Mike
  4. >I think I can see the crack. Is it to the right of the triangular anchoring tab? Yes, that is it. It's visible enough I need to be certain any patch will not be visible. Mike
  5. It's a crack that runs vertically near the hold down bolt. It appears to go thru the tank. You can barely see it on the video. Mike
  6. Here's a link to a video. The tank is brand new. Purchased a couple of weeks ago. Probably been sitting for 18 years on a shelf. Mike
  7. I've got a leaking tank with a crack. What are my options? Mike
  8. I'm checking to see if I can find one before having mine resprayed. Mike
  9. Thank you for the clarification! Even tho he didn't pen them, I doubt the boss would have approved the later designs if he didn't agree with them. I've always been torn between my 1200 Sport and the Griso as to which design I prefer. Mike
  10. Beautiful design is a big part of a bike's appeal to me. I currently own 2 Guzzi's designed by Marabese: a 1200 Sport and a V11 LeMans. I also own a LeMans 3 which Marabese has said is his personal Guzzi. "You know, even though I design for Aprilia, Laverda and others, and in my life I have had about thirty different bikes, that's it: the Guzzi is the only one I still have in my heart. I still enjoy today with my 850 Le Mans." http://archivio.animaguzzista.com/maestri/marabese/marabese.htm My question for you Marabese aficionado's is this: if you could have 3 Marabese Guzzi
  11. Will do Bob. It's going to Hulls for a check up. Then we'll do a fun run run! Mike
  12. Earlier this year I foolishly sold my 2003 LeMans. I've regretted it. I offered to buy it back but the new owner declined. When a 2002 Champagne LeMans came along, I jumped. The color has grown on me over the years. It's a 1 year color and I think it makes an elegant GT bike. Especially with some carbon detailing. I want to repaint the tank as it is faded and stained by gasoline overflow. I can have my paint store attempt to match, but if anyone has a better suggestion please let me know. Or perhaps someone has a champagne tank they would part with. (the pic is not my bike .....yet)
  13. 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
  14. 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
