Hi older returning member looking for a good but not perfect 850 T3 T around the 76/78 type vintage.

Just a thought but remember the V1000 G5 is about the same as a T3 cali but with footpegs and slightly larger engine, Also the V1000 Spada again same frame but with 950 (1000) engine and bodywork. 

My point is they are all same frame the slightly bigger engine adds nothing really to the weight. The only difference are the "cycle parts/dash" but they are ALL interchangeable.

It just gives you wider options is all, often V1000 G5 is lesser known therefore not as expensive

Thanks that's helpful I did ponder that one myself. Not looking to buy a Cali prefer cooking version T3. Also prefer spoked wheels so will see if the g5 was specced with them in any version. Not so keen on Spada type dash. Hope don't sound too picky.
Thanks again Peter

Having looked at the V1000 G5 ( and thanks for heads up) Yes i agree now added to my search criteria which is:

76 - 78 ish 850 T3 non Cali or at least non footboards. Spoked wheels a must.

Not sure what years G5 came with spokes but now added V1000 G5 spoked wheeled, non foot boards.

Not picky at all !!

Thanks Peter

Some g5's came with footpegs rather than footboard. Slightly lower and further forward than on a t3.

G5 standard are foot pegs and early ones had spoked wheels later they swapped to the cast wheels. 

Look at the pic above the screen panniers front crashbars with air dams are same as T3 Cali BUT the footboarded bikes are V1000 Convert OR were adapted for Police use the boards give heel/toe gearchange so you don't mark highly polished boots.

SP 1000 Spada is the same bike but added fairing and different dash easy to alter to T3 or basic roadster look as are ALL the Tonti framed bikes.

I think the modern term is "modular engineering" .... the frame and engine/gearbox are the same from 850-1000-1100. The cycle parts therefore hang on the frame. They made the 1100 frame stiffer with added gusseting and such but my EV1100 is a very similar frame to those mid 70's bikes same 5 speed gearbox and clutch combination.

As you are in Loughborough I am only down the road Sileby easy to meet and chat widening the search criteria gives greater choice, you can retro fit cast/spoked wheels and just about every other part. 

In the V11 range the Stone and Cali Classic have footrests. Easy job to swap out cycle parts

I have a Convert.  It came with cast wheels and I bought some spoked wheels which were expensive at the time. The price seems to have rocketed since then and might make it prohibitive, so buying a bike already shod with them would be the way to go. I also changed the dash, which was one of the ugliest creations I have ever seen, for a T3 style. Tonti Guzzis are really easy to work on and as Ken says pieces can be swapped around from model to model.

How can you call the Convert dash ugly?

It’s sheer genius that’s designed to make all the warning lamps invisible in daylight - saves so much unnecessary worry and expense.

Don’t suppose you still have the cast wheels?
