  1. Hi Scud

    Trust you’re keeping safe & well during this C/virus shutdown.

    Hoping you have a spare re-engineered shift spring available.

    If so, let me know by pm or email:


    Cheers ScuRoo 


  2. That is my old greenie. I actually liked that paint a little better than the stock color. It has just a touch more sass. And greenies like a touch of sass.
  3. That is a true, but misleading topic title. Good on you for the "made you look" effect. I got all worked up thinking Valentino would be on a new 4V LeMans. Still a great article. Thanks for sharing that blast from the past. I am enjoying my 4V 1200cc Stelvio, which undoubtedly owes something of its existence to this early "butterfly" race effort. So yes, I have experienced the butterfly effect. Although the butterflies in the carbs have been replaced by fuel injection.
  4. Yup. Love it here. Come visit next time you get to California.
  5. Sign me up for one Chuck. I'll keep it on hand in case another V11 shows up at my house someday.
  6. Great garage photo. I miss the greenie sometimes, but I'm glad you are enjoying it. BTW - you sent me a PM about the pipes. I honestly can't remember what was on there. Post up some pics and we can help you identify the pipes.
  7. I had an "essential" reason to leave my home and go to the post office for work today, so I mailed out several springs. If you've sent me money in the last month, during California's Corona-virus Clampdown, your springs are on the way.
  8. That is cool. But not for me as I haven't worn a watch for probably 20 years. I think I've received 3 tide watches as gifts, never wore one of them. When I'm surfing I don't want to know what time it is. Same for when I'm riding (I mean real riding, not commuting).
  9. I've had a few inquiries and am accumulating boxes for a future batch of shipping. Above is the post with the payment detail. Remember, I will need your mailing address. Send me a PM if you prefer to use Venmo or mail a paper check.
  10. Hey guys... my local dealer just announced a deep discount on all parts in stock. I feed bad for them, and will probably buy some tires to show support, but also because supply chains are being disrupted around the world and methinks not too many motorcycle tires are made in America.
  11. Thanks Dave. I know a lot of people think these are somehow more valuable than the other special edition models, but they don't do it for me. Now a Nero Corsa... I'd even consider trading my Scura for a pristine Nero Corsa. Sadly, prices for all sorts of used bikes are probably going down soon given current economic conditions.
  12. I have a lot of springs. Payment and shipping details are back a few pages. I have a few boxes ready to ship as soon as I am allowed to leave my house - California is currently under stay-at-home orders to stop the spread of COVID-19.
  13. Glad you guys got it sorted. I have a lot springs here and can re-supply you guys later. I'm already boxing up a few shipments to have ready when I can leave my house again.
  14. Today is the first day staying at home in California. I took a pre-dawn walk with the dog to the main street at the edge of my neighborhood. Still some light traffic, which I assume were people on their way to "essential work" such as healthcare, sanitation, power supply, etc. Saw a couple big military trucks roll by. Wednesday, a solo military helicopter landed at our local airport - I assume the passengers are now in charge of that airport. My daughters are all home (one returned from college a few days ago). So we are safe and stocked up on essentials. Taking a cue from the Italians, we've got a load of pasta and tomato sauce. I'm all set up to work at home (have always maintained a home-office), and putting in long hours. My business is hit hard by this and we (like most other small businesses) are scrambling to figure out what this will mean to us. In each of our offices (UK, Singapore, 3 in the US), we made everybody take home whatever they needed to work from home. Yesterday, we did a video meeting and showed off our new "offices" to each other. We went totally virtual as we are expecting this restriction to go nation-wide. Last night (hours before the California stay-at-home deadline), I delivered a bunch of food to one of my team who has a high-risk profile for this virus - he is on self-imposed 100% quarantine till this is over. He said (though his upstairs window) "You don't realize how much certain activities mean to you until you can't do them." I told him to remember that he has a rebellious friend with a dirt bike who knows how to find things. This thing is totally surreal. A few weeks ago, I made my family watch the movie Contagion. They didn't think that was going to happen. But here we are. I hope Moto Guzzi (which is near the epicenter of the Italian outbreak) can make it to their 100th birthday. Thanks Jaap, for opening the dialogue and for setting the apolitical tone.
