1987 Cagiva Alazzurra

A of me and my Cagiva 650 Alazurra road in the pit area at Sears Point. I the motor foward 1.5, the rake to 26 degrees, put on 1000 Guzzi triple clamps to the trail, lengthened the swing and braced the frame. Craig the head pipes, and I hydroformed the 37K jpeg file

I’m to tell you a bit about my Cagiva 650 SS because 1) I think you’ll it interesting, and 2) it is going up for sale IT SOLD IN AUGUST 1996).

The is an ’87 model and came the 38mm Brembo calipers and x 18 cast wheel combination. It was by the previous owner in February from Monroe Motors in San Emile rode the bike on the for a bit, and then started it in the AFM 650 Twins class. I met Emile in and did some work on the bike, up the squish bands and making

Emile raced the bike in stock trim, other adjustable Konis, 38mm forks (stock was 35mm) and aluminum carrier discs in of the stock 260mm one piece In 1991 he had a local tuner up the ports and manifolds and do a valve I think Emile got as high as 4th or 5th finishes before putting the back on the street at the end of the 1991

He had a couple of mild low slides left some minor in the tank, but destroyed the stock

I got a call from Emile in summer 1992, when he to sell the bike. I’d a belt-drive Ducati for some so I bought it in moderately rough Emile had complained about how the end pushed in corners at Sears so I didn’t bother riding it taking it apart and putting the on my frame jig.

L-twin have always had a problem of tail-heavy (I raced a GT750 for years in the early 1980’s), and I this, in conjunction with the rake/trail, was causing the front end I cut off the motor mounts and moved the forward in the frame 1.5. the swingarm moved forward the engine, I lengthened it about 1 to the wheelbase near stock.

I also steepened the steering to 26 degrees, and installed triple from a big Guzzi to reduce the from the stock 5 to something in the inch range. I made motormounts, removed the vertical that ran just behind the cylinder, and added in another 5 tubes on either side of the a triangulating tube between the top under the seat, and a bit of streamline between the lower frame above the horizontal cylinder.

I put an plate on top of the frame (under the and mounted all of the electrics to it, after the various safety interlock and redoing much of the wiring I don’t run a steering damper, and never had the front end shake on me. and figuring out how Emile had attached the switches (crudely) took 12 hours.

I added mounts to the steering for instruments/lights. I removed three of the six in the one piece rear disc, and the disc edges until the was no wider than the brake I then made a floating for the caliper.

While messing the rear wheel I converted it to 520 with an anodized aluminum (and slightly higher Rearsets, a slight reangling of the manifolds, Malossi bellmouths on the 36mm carbs (with the pumps removed), a 2-1 pipe a proper design and headpipe by my Craig and a hydroformed curved and trick aluminum header by me, and the adapting of the center stand to bolt to the motor (since weren’t attached to the frame pretty much completed

A set of Avon AM22/23 (110, 130 x 18) in compound and number plates saw me for the 1993 AFM season. The bike 390 with lights and a bit of gas.

Cagiva 650 Alazzurra

I the 650 Twins and 750 Superbike classes in the seasons and acquitted myself honor, if not distinction (that I was always 5 — 10 places last place). I think my time at Sears Point was a and the bike was consistently just a bit on top end than a Hawk with a jet kit and I also took it to the Wednesday drags at Sears, where it did 100 seconds in the quarter.

At the end of the 94 season I put the 650 on the street and concentrated on getting my 750 ready for 3 of the last 4 races of the 95 I ride the 650 every month or but most of the time it sits as got lots of other race/street bikes in need of fiddling. never gotten around to the bike apart and finishing the and with the other projects I won’t.

The engine runs well, the handles very well, and be glad to point out all the minor from the prior owner I’m aware of. I’ve got a of a factory manual, and most of a full gasket set (except the cover gasket).

At $2700, is an inexpensive way to get into a trick (and/or cheap 650 twins with a lot of one-off work it. Since the bike is paid for and I really mind keeping it (it is the only running street I’ve got now), I’m not to give it away offers, I would probably drop the $4 or $5 if you really press me. I’d to see it go to a new owner who will appreciate all the stuff I’ve done to it, and like to get money to feed Carrillo rods for my SP1000 and wheels for my Formula 3 250 Ninja bike (not to mention the 13 or so projects that will be to soak up the excess, if any) TOO ALREADY GONE TO A NEW HOME
