After ’01 it was only occasionally for a couple years the owner purchased a newer SPIII.

After that the sat again in the garage collecting — but not rust 😉 In fact the said he was very much a weather rider and the Eldorado was purposely ridden in the rain.

Eldorado is a solid strong and ran without issues or problems and is to have Never left the stranded — not once. (I had a Ambassador that had this of karma.) I was told the bike has been down — kids bicycles in the garage left some nasty on the front fender, which been touched up and look good now. I inspected and tested the bike and found it to be fit and in excellent condition.

The choke lever appears to be the thing which is broken and the old ignition boot is torn. feels sloppy or worn Everything else is working, all the buttons, levers, Everything is — Steering head, drive action, transmission are all and fluid in movement. Man, 5 speed transmission is really the smooth shifter — 1st gear.

_ the button and GO! This baby right up — no choke or Without the choke at 40 degrees it did and spit some, but still, she right up! I was not really surprised, these Guzzi’s have a I was so happy with it that in the I went to the local Guzzi on it and have put about 100 + miles on it and the ride.

I have not even the motorcycle. It is dirty from in a garage for 8 years and a little from my 100 mile ride.
