  1. I remember the first time I saw a Tenni on the showroom. I was in love. Then I saw it was $15k and said I can't afford it. Especially in my 20s starting out. I drooled like you did. Behold 10 years later in 13 I bought my Lemans. Took years to sort out all the prior owner rigging and neglect but not the thing is faster than when new and probably more reliable. Guzzi ownership I discovered is like marriage to a chick with mental issues.. They can give you hell but once you get them going right and give them love you can ride em as hard as you want and become keepers.. (hopefully that isn't considered innapropriate..๐Ÿ˜‰)
  2. The Coppas always sold at a premium on the second hand market. Not $15k though. More like 9 or 10. $7k for a real Coppa is a good deal. Especially that one.
  3. Imagine if Prince rode a CX100 Lemans.. Purple Rain would of been even more epic.

  5. They're out there but you have to REALLY look. I found the one for my Lemans from a guy in Australia selling a Scura tank on E-Bay. I sent him an email asking if he just wanted to sell the pad and he agreed. I think I paid $152 shipped. Thankfully the exchange rate was in my favor. But they're out there..
  6. I had the same isdue with my Scura. It actually fell out. Then on my Lemans is about to come out. Vibrations are a bizzo. I had Guzzitech put in one of his LEDs. I think it took a small drill tap into the back of the housing for the board and cooler fan. Works amazing. LEDs work great in these. That housing is pretty tight but it's doable without melting anything. Im currently running all LEDs in my Scura.
  7. Got my Lemans out today and took advantage of the lack of people in downtown Tucson. https://photos.app.goo.gl/DUoh4v2tRhi1Zud36 https://photos.app.goo.gl/E9Y8TkLiVYLMUWbo6 https://photos.app.goo.gl/g7yyhajaEGWM5gNm9 https://photos.app.goo.gl/n2Sbc1wiUkBe5gUp8 (can a mod blow these up for me? Couldn't get it working. Thank you)
  8. Im curious if there's a practical way to fit maybe a new V7 tank. It's an idea. I wonder if there's a way to get around the internal fuel pump? I've never popped off a newer v7 tank. Similar to an 850 tank in looks and Im sure far more plentiful.
  9. True story. Had the pic but it was 2009 of the same number triple clamps and the riders laughing about it. Remember the Duc Sportclassic black and gold babies? Pretty bikes.
  10. Definitely replaced and running strong. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ˜‰
  11. I don't think you're seeing my point. They are special. And not every V11 is the same. And if you think through my perspective All V11s are the same? Well, I guess all V11s are special. All hand built Italian bikes with all of them being slightly different. Touchรจ. Oh, by the way.. I personally thing Guzzi fudged their numbers and made waaaaaay more than 170 Tennis and a heck of a lot more than 600 Scuras. Like when I went to Marcus Dairy in CT and 2 guys had the same numbered Special Edition Ducati Sport Classic. And I love Tennis too. One of my bucket list bikes.
  12. The Tenni is pretty special. But comparing it to a Scura is a stretch. The Tenni was a paint scheme, cool seat and some other little tidbit to tilt its hat to Guzzi's history. The Scura was last of the true "hotrod" Guzzis. Ohlins, racing explode-o-matc flywheel (hey, I can joke about it. I own one), carbon bits, etc. The Nero Corsa, Corsa Rossa, Cafe Sport, etc were mere upgrades like how Ducati goes from a Standard model to an S model.
  13. That sound could be from being cones. Try another shape. My Mistrals on my Lemans sound pretty sweet. These are aluminum with carbon tips. They probably didn't cost much more than you cones. https://photos.app.goo.gl/VktjjeNfh9x2KZju6
  14. IDK... Comparing Staintunes to Mistrals? Im not hating on Staintunes but for what they charge I'd rather Mistral. Better build. If you like Staintunes and you're in the states you can fit a pair of Two Bros universal fit or D&Ds for less and get the same sound and build quality. I have a pair of aluminum 2 Bros you can fit for super cheap if you doubt me. They just need better brackets around the footpegs.
