Hi all

I am based between antwerp and bruges and spend not enough time and too much money on bikes. Most are mountainbike but the garage is packed with a 1974 laverda 1000, a 1973 bultaco alpina 350 and an ural outfit that is impossible to date. And since some days a guzzi. It's a 1976 850 t3 with a 950 big bore kit, and lots of non standard parts. Just what i wanted. After getting it registered i'll give it a good shake down and intend to use it as my commuter bike.

Cheers from beer country.

Thanks.

I am not a collector. I am preparing to sell the bultaco. Since getting the ural, the bultaco doesn't see much action anymore. It's way too noisy to take into the dirt roads around where i live. Animals and pedestrians respond very negatively to it. With the ural outfit the kids can join the ride too. And so far it has been reliable and easy to fix but it has a very open lubrication system. Oil doesn't get the chance to run dark ;-)

As for the Laverda: it's fully original save for a long clutch arm and better breathing (jota exhaust system and bell inlets). I had a jota before but i like the regular 3c much better. It is still more than a handful but it is not as exhausting in normal traffic. I swore to never sell The 3c.

Eager to hit the open road with the guzzi. Hoping it makes my 30 km commute safe and fun. I had a modern bmw once and didn't like it at all. Ever since it's only old bikes for me.  
Interested in hearing your stories.
