bought a 1983 California II for restro. Where do I start? Good point. Cali IIs are really tough machines. just ask CaliIIrider, a truck drove over his and he still rode it home! Like Keith says, it depends what your priorities are initially.

I would say the obvious starting point would be the mechanicals and the electrics.

Following thatthe cosmetic side of things you can do bit by bit as time and finances allow I guess. Many restorers start by stripping the machine and then powder coating the frame etc for durability then concentrate on everything else as it is being put back together.

If it only cost $300 you may be onto a good start as not having had a big outlay may help the budget in sourcing parts as you go. We can certainly help with manuals and parts lists as I think we have them knocking around, also with colour codes when you get to that point 🙂 Look what this cahp did: http://guzzista.wetpaint.com/page/1969+V750+Ambassador+Restoration Another good point is that you have a Tonti framed machine. As that frame formed the basis of Moto Guzzi models for many years it means that you will be able to use some parts from other Guzzis if you cannot find specific Cali II ones.

There are also some great books that can help with such things as carb settings to fork lube oil types: Guzziology by Dave Richardson is an obvious choice but also Moto Guzzi restoration by Mick Walker. You can get books cheaper here: http://guzzista.wetpaint.com/page/Squadra+Guzzista+amazon+store

Just make sure you keep us posted on progress and we can help as you go. and we like pics. -)

California 850 t3 vs California EV 1100 I had two California in my life, a 850 T3 and EV 1100. From the first exit fully satisfied as he did 350,000 km and never leave me lying is more, she toured part of Europe.

The EV gave me great satisfaciones, travel throughout Europe, had plenty of power to bring my wife and my over all baggage for one month while camping. But when it came to 50,000 km some strange electrical breakdowns that never were made to fix the selling stopped.

Today I have a Breva 1100 while waiting for the new California

Moto Guzzi California II

Origins of the California name Mike Harper has some information as to the possible origins of the California model name. I add below the details from a post he made on Wild Guzzi. cheers for the info Mike. -) If anyone else has any further details to add to this article go for it and add a thread. -)

I believe that they have their wires crossed as to the origination of the use of the name California.

I was told by Dave Hewitt who was the Berliner road rep back then. The name California along with the names Ambassador and Eldorado were all the brain work of Michael Berliner.

He renamed the bikes coming into the US Ambassador and Eldorado. They are not called that in Europe .

The California name as I was told came about because of a large order of Eldorado LAPD models that had been ordered in late 73 or early 74 and while they were being built and shipped to the US the Lapd and CHP cancelled their order leaving Berliner with an overabundance of police models that he was going to have some problem selling.

Somewhere in the time frame of the bikes being ordered and arriving in the US or possibly after they arrived in the US Berliner changed the fenders to chrome, changed the seat and had decals made saying California The name caught on and the factory started using the name on some of the later models.

The original bikes with the California name had fuel tanks with no chrome panels and different decals.
