Hello,
        I am/will be in the market for one of these very soon.
I have seen the one a vert popular auction site, something not quite right? and to expensive for what it is in my opinion.
If by any chance you have one or know of one for sale I would be very pleased to hear from you.
Some pics would be good/and pm me a number and I will get back to you.
Thanks
Regards
Glen.

Nice looking bikes, I remember sitting on one of the last of the line in a dealer showroom. In black under the spotlights it looked fabulous. Sadly the riding position was, for me, diabolical.  I guess you've tried one for size?

I did 630 miles on mine last weekend. Im 6 foot 3" and 16 stone. Got off it feeling more refreshed than I would have if I had been on my Pan 13. But that might have been the Guzzi Factor at play !

I set the forks at about medium and preload at its stiffest on the rear with damping at about 7. Seems to sit a bit higher at the rear end and less likely to sag and drop. A real "sit up and beg" position. Also more precise on the twisties.

I think with all bikes you have to fiddle to get what you need.
I might not be 6`3" but I am 15+ stone, been a slow winter with very little exercise lol
I am sure I can achieve the sit up and beg position I need.

Well it`s been a while and I have had no luck finding a CalVin, there must be a nice black one with my name on it somewhere in this isle.

I was looking for one 5 years ago and they were rare as Hens teeth then, ended up going for a Norge, totally different style etc but have never regretted it.  My daily commute is a plessure
