Behold the mighty Guzzi! What we are looking at here is a Series 2 machine of the original 850 LeMans production, identified by the square (as opposed to round) taillights. With big, torquey twin cylinders and shaft drive, these LeMans models are ideally suited to devoring long stretches of ambling pavement.
From the seller:
This is a 1977 Moto Guzzi Lemans original and unrestored with many new parts. Bike starts easily and all electrics work as new. Paint is factory original with some wear and a few chips seen in photos. Only the fairing orange has been resprayed due to fading. Most paint is quite strong but frame paint which is not wonderful when new is less so. All wiring is correct and intact. Carburater's are freshly rebuilt and have their original plastic velocity stacks in place but K&N filters were always used and stacks only mounted for photos. K&N's included with sale. Matched Dunlop tires are a few years old but still very nice. Brembo calipers are compleatly rebuilt including new pistons and seals all around. Brake lines are original and seem fine.Other new parts include brand new header pipe, not mounted in this photo set, new correct grips, new tubes, new rubber key switch cover, new fork boot's, new clutch and throttle cables, Also included is a NOS owners manual and factory parts book. All tune up specifacations checked and all fluids and filters replaced. There are a few flaws aside from usual wear. The fake side cover louvers have been opened up to actually function. It was very skillfully done and could be reversed. The usual stress cracks in the covers have been reinforced from the back sides. The original mufflers have been welded around hanger bracket and a series of very small holes drilled to reduce back pressure. The cross over has a pin hole or two. There is also a non stock clutch inspection hole fitted with a rubber plug in transmision case located on the top and quite hidden. Another case without inspection hole is included with the bike. The saddle has an abrasion mark on the right rear which can be easily repaired. Over all a very nice example of this fast appriciating classic Guzzi.
The Guzzi LeMans series has become more valued from a collector perspective in the past few years. These are really solid, classic motorcycles and this one could make a great additions to your collection. This is a bike that you can ride and enjoy while it appreciates. The seller has offered many pictures and good detail as to the current condition of the bike, and it appears to be a good bike in rideable condition.
