  1. For reference, here is the Scurra FW
  2. I. Pretty sure it will but I'm not an expert on that.
  3. I have a complete clutch and flywheel from a Centauro if anyone is interested. full clutch with FW 8 pounds w/ring gear 11# pretty sure it would work in any big twin accept the 95-1998 California's with the flywheel sensor.
  4. Just a reminder, the front zerk fitting on the drive shaft is tricky to get at. But don't ignore it. get a Roper plate right away if it doesn't have one yet. im 5'10" had 2" bar risers and it fit me perfect. Sadly I traded it for a Miata in a weak moment. But I got the better deal, later sold the Miata for a bigger profit that should have been illegal. then got a Buell, torq monster and it had a similar character to the Guzzi. I'm waiting for the perfect V11 at the perfect price to get back on someday. notice the chrome, None! Oh wait the rim around the tack and speedo was chrome I think. Oh, I added those beautiful chrome mufflers to shine it up just right.
  5. They could call it the Rhoad Island.
  6. If you both have the same bank like Wells Fargo you can just do a transfer. If not the same bank I'm pretty sure you can send money with your bank via something called Zelle or Venmo. there is also wire transfer from Western union. Escrow.com will hold the money until your agreed upon terms are met and delivery takes place, then you ok the payment.
  7. Are you sure? Scrap around with a screw driver or punch. Sometimes they are hard to see.

    Why not just get an after market disc?
  9. I think I said the price was $6k. It's in Minnesota and the V7 in background is an 850t tarted up as a V7 Sport. he wanted something like $8k for that, I thought way too high. Ive kind of lost track of the bikes and guy, maybe can find out did they ever sell if your really interested at $6,000 send me a pm
  10. Disagree, my V11 Bassa was a real nice bike for a cruiser, true not a sport bike but beautiful in its own way. I had two in white as well..
  11. Fasteners on a Guzzi are nothing, try doing a belt change on a Buell.. I seem to remember at least 13 different tools to do the job.
  12. I'd sure like to know the names of the plagiarists, care to share?
  13. Genius on full display, nice!
  14. Run, don't walk away.. unless you have endless time and even more money I see it as a complete waste of your time. Why would you want to spend hours working on that heap when you have a Lemans to ride? but yeah $3-400 sounds reasonable.
  15. I would start by setting valve lash, it takes about 10 minutes. If too tight it can die at stops.
  16. Could it be the Sport has a five speed and the V11 6 speeds?
  17. Would that be the same as one on a Centauro? I "might" have one of those.

    For reference, this bike not sold yet.
  19. Perhaps the offender will pay you out of pocket to keep his record with insurance company clean?
  20. I did that once, they paid $5500 for the bike, I bought back for $1400. Plus they bought me some new gear. Then they forgot to report it as totaled to the state so I had a clean title too.
  21. I disagree my last Oddesey battery lasted more that 7 years and I've heard a few stories of them being even older and still working fine. In fact I'm still using it in my lawn tractor and it's probably 12 years old .
  22. It's probably the best V11 I will ever find but I'm still hesitant.. I could maybe get the price down some but the cost of new tires a battery and likely exhaust then sorting out something with old gas in the tank and who knows what shape the tank is in.. no Roper plate etc. I did tell the guy I'd trailer it home if he'd let go for $4k.. hopefully he's still pondering that. I've been riding for 50 years but don't really have the urge anymore. My wife and dogs always want to go with, then there's the safety factor, I had a get off on my Honda trail 90 last summer going full bore (about 45mph?) and bashed up my elbow and hip, lucky I didn't bang the Beanie since I was not wearing a helmet or any other gear, one of the rare times I've done that, dumb I know. Rear tire had a blow out. we just got home from a great day trip in my convertible and I'm pretty satisfied with that. call me a wimp.
