 No longer required thanks.
 
I am on the look out for another Guzzi, preferably a Big Block Tonti, a loop frame, (with of course everything else that goes with it to be a complete bike!), or an older 750, V7 etc.
 
 
 
So, if anyone has any in the above range they are thinking of parting with please drop me a pm etc.
I won't mess anyone about, if it's one I like there will be no hassle regarding payment etc.
 
Cheers
Robert

Can't see this one hanging about for long - http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C807977

It actually looks like a very original, reasonably priced Cali T3.  Crikey.

Tell you what the V1000 G5 or even older convert are very similar to a Cali all one needs to change is the instruments (I would go for ETB ones) , the bars and hoses The V1000 seat is far more comfy than the T3 Cali any way , get it recovered in black/white , the G5 has footrests which many prefer to the footboards fitted to the Cali /Convert , One can fit a convert engine to any other Tonti 1000cc round cylinder BUT another option is an 1100 EV engine then get the converter plates from Gutsibits and fit the round rocker covers , after polishing them they look fantastic ...the gearbox on the EV is the same 5 speed one fitted to the 1976 V1000 .......older V1000's have same luggage as Cali and wire wheels .... IF the torque converter has died they are replaceable nowadays BUT a 5 speed clutch fitted then the Gearbox end UJ mated to the Convert rear part of the UJ gives a higher geared bevel box, your 1st will be high BUT IF one bangs an 1100 engine in the higher geared bevel IS desirable

Yes, I think I might go for that one if I was in the market for a Tonti.

I would really like to have the dosh to get an 1100 engine into the V1000 , especially with the converter plates to pop the round rocker covers on gearbox is the same Oh yeah IF you wanted a V11 Le Mans engine you would need a convert timing chest to pop on it to accommodate the lower frame bolt having had a V11 lemans I noticed the timing cover was same as the convert one with a pair of huge lumps welded on to take the higher frame mount so to use it in a Tonto frame a Convert type one needed they utilise the oil pump in that for the oil cooler I think

Ready to ride, I don't mind a bit of fettling to get it running and looking  well, but I have had enough of restoring over the years from my £75  Le Mans 1 to Commandos, and a good few in between.
 
My problem is, I like things correct or at least clean, an example of which is that the 1/12th scale Centauro I did for Tarquin had 8 paint jobs before I was happy, with each previous one stripped back off, and because he had some fancy foot controls which were not with the kit, I made the correct ones!
 
I can make a rod for my own back at times, so I think a ready to ride, maybe with just a wee bit of tweaking, ( or twerking as the case may beWink), is probably the best way for me at this time.
