Item specifics

Like the Moto Guzzi Le Mans listed elsewhere – another tale of woe and vacillation!

This a 1986 Moto Guzzi V65TT – quite rare in the UK. Owned by me since 1997 (good Lord 16 years) that has had 4 previous owners and a presumed genuine mileage of 33k miles.

The previous owner had the bike for 7 years with the intention of restoration – I’ve had it for 16 years and almost completed it’s restoration – in those 23 years it has hardly turned a wheel in anger other than pushing from one garage to another!

First off – the bike has a Q plate – apparently the bike was imported (1986?) in bits and assigned a Q plate. However, I had written to the LVA regards an age related number as the bike is/was not a collection of disparate parts but a complete machine with correct frame/engine numbers. I have the letter and LVA reply confirming the assignation of an age related number subject to dating evidence from Moto Guzzi or Moto Guzzi Club GB.

Mike Lacey (MGCGB) sent me such evidence confirming the engine/frame numbers and date of manufacture 1984. I’m horrified to note these various letters are dated April/May 2007. I presume though that a keen new owner would be able to re-visit these matters and obtain the correct age re-lated registration number.

The reason for the lack of progress manifested itself in a jamming LH fork slider – this despite new upper and lower fork yolks, new stanchions and seals. One of the brackets for the brake calliper had been welded and obviously distored the lower part of the slider. A new Brembo calliper (same as that fitted to the rear of a Daytona) together with those Goodridge Aramid brake lines. 2 months ago a set of replacement sliders were obtained to sort the matter (and new fork seals).

However the imminent moving house means the work will not get done – restoration has taken 16 years so far – the new owner can deal with this matter.

That aside, the bike is in very good condition having had the wheels rebuilt (retaining the original rims) with stainless spokes, as new tyres albeit at least 16years old! The rear shocks serviced and re-sealed together with powder coated springs – seat recovered. New stainless exhaust pipes are fitted to complement the existing lusty SITO KK silencer.

New indicators (same as Daytona) fitted.

The replacement forks alluded to above came with an original horn and bracket together with a spare fork brace.

So, there it is – a lot of the hard work done – a lovely machine – engine/gearbox in fine form – that needs to be serviced/re-commissioned, new battery, fork slider replaced etc.

There are a number of bits and pieces together with those included in the photographs.

If I’ve forgotten anything worthwhile please email with queries/questions or telephone 07742668827 (after 8pm).
