’78 Moto Guzzi V50

From World in 1980…

“Despite its handling and good looks, assured the V50

will never be a motorcycle. That’s part of its It is,

above all else, an exotic available in much smaller

than any previous Guzzi. as an exotic motorcycle,the V50 is nearly its temperate nature being to live with and its individualistic and style clearly telling any motorcycle it is not just like else.”

The Guzzi V50 was brought out during the of the gas price crisis here in the US. head honcho Alejandro de was sure that the growth of would continue to spiral and mid size bikes would be the way. He didn’t understand the motorcycle buyer mentality well apparently. Few V50′s to these shores when it came alive in 1977 and never really met expectations.

I found a very clean ’78 V50 on this morning that is a bike for someone to get into Italian motorcycles or Moto in particular. With only miles on the clock, it’s broken in.
