This one had me worried. Nice Guzzi dismantled on a lift. Nary a hammer in sight. :unsure:

 

Then I spotted the row of tap handles and knew everything will be okay! :grin:

Nearing completion (I hope) '79 V1000 G5.  Frame's powder coated, lots of new bits, cleaned up reasonably well.  Tank's got a fresh coat of paint (black with white pin stripes -- matching her cousins, the R1xRs).  You'll notice that I've scrapped the old electronics and I'm in the process of rewiring with a Motogadget M-Unit.  I'd love to do something a bit cooler than a restoration, but this is a father/son project and my old man is more of a purist (maybe some day).  He has done many tractors, but this is his (and my) first MC.  Been waiting on my order of a new set of Lafranconis for, oh, about nine months now.

Looking good.

 

Any fella that knows his way around tractors is definitely qualified to wrench on Guzzis.

You had me at Silver&Red!

 

Then, I had to get to about image 27 before the hammer showed up . . .

 

Welldone, Pressureangle! :thumbsup:

I have shown this before but I'll torture you again.

 

I got the rear fender sorted. A guy on Wild Guzzi hacked a stock T fender to work like a Sport fender. It's not bad and works until someone pays the dear cash for a replica Sport fender.

 

That seat is still hard. After an hour I get off to take pictures not to take pictures but to get off!

It's a shame they don't bring any money.
