I don’t want to deal a bunch of local yokels who to haggle or try to get a ride. I bought bike, a Triumph Trident 4600 miles in perfect and can’t keep both. If I sell the Guzzi in a few weeks, I keep it, restore it completely and the Trident.

Excerpt from a review…

Guzzi launched the 850 Le Mk II in 1978, following it up with the Mk III in They also made Le 1000 Mk IV and Mk V models in 1984 and but rather than the earlier engines, the Le Mans 1000s fitted with slightly powerful 949cc v-twins. the years, the Le Mans also got styling tweaks, air-assisted linked brakes, and marginally electrics.

But the sexier, more stylish 850 Le – and not the later Le Mans 1000 – is definitely the bike to have.

Good 1970s/80s models go for US$8,000 – 10,000 these and for fans of classic Italian those old 850 Le Mans should be worth the money…

Look at pics and you’ll probably why we’re in love with the 850 Le

With Moto Guzzi’s shaft-drive, telescopic forks at the adjustable twin rear and proper Italian-superbike styling, the 850 Le Mans was fast and fun. Top was about 210km/h, and while ergonomics and stiff suspension that the 225-kilo Le Mans very comfortable, it handled at reasonably well. (For era, riding on the tyres in those days, and other clichés as applicable…) It also US$3,700 back in 1976, wasn’t exactly inexpensive!

The 1983 Moto Guzzi 850 Le MkIII. It’s just so, so
