No, not mine. A customer's bike.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, not in mine though.

It's a thing from another age. It's beauty is mainly from an engineering standpoint. It was I think the first reactive drive to ever be used on a Guzzi.

Here's how mine looks now Pete

I know, I know, took a work of art and butchered it

Not sure, possibly the Classico & the Arturo were before it. 

Anyway as already said "Eye of the Beholder", personally I think they are things of beauty, compare them with Guzzi's offering of the time, the LM 1000 from which it's derived

John, you don't have any way of replicating the decals do you? The owner wants to repaint and tart it up a bit.

I reckon you'll be able to get the decals direct from Magni, Pete

Last I contacted Magni, a couple of weeks back he was closed due to the BatFlu but I want to contact him anyway, so no hassle to add the request, try again and see what comes up.

No guarantees but it's worth a shot

I can also drop a line to the guy who resprayed mine, he replicated the decals and then airbrushed them into the paintwork, then sealed them with clear coat

If you know a good airbrush guy he could spray them onto the tank then seal them in.

I'll drop a line to Gav the painter who did mine and ask if he could forward the files if he still has them

Be glad to help, if I can

John

Thanks John. The owner has contacted Magni but no reply. If your bloke has some files for a cutter that would be great!

See what I can do and let you know Pete, re Gav the painter

I'll drop Giovanni Magni a line too, may as well, nothing to lose

Magni is very hit & miss in replying at the best of times, but I've bought some stuff off him over the years (for me & others) so it's worth a try

Watch this space

The Kid did his shop chair with some decals he had made for his Spot. I *think* it was done photographically.

Thanks Jaap. I think John has it in hand at the moment. That looks like the tank logo. There are also smaller ones without the motorbike motif on the fairing.
