This is just a short message to introduce myself.
I am a former biker now hoping to be able to ride again after some years of inactivity due to financial reasons. I am Italian but I live in Essex.
I eat, drink, and breathe Moto Guzzi. It is a mystery to me how some people don't. It takes all sorts, I suppose.
Bye
Omobono

Many thanks to you all! 

Jim Mac, I am looking for a 1000 SP I or (preferably) SP II, I think both were called "Spada" here in the UK. 
I have posted an ad hoc message in the relevant forum, but I am also looking on Internet sites and have written to several specialists hoping someone will be able to source one. They seem not easy to find, but I will be patient. I suspect many have been already transformed in specials of some sort. 

Regards
Omobono

Ciao Omobono, my partner is also Italian and between us we have 6 guzzi'S. It's always great to meet new guzzi or soon to be guzzi owners and especially Italian ones.

Essex branch is fairly active, they meet at a different Essex venue each month. Next one is:
 
Sunday 20th December 2015 at The Ickleton Lion, 9 Abbey Street, Saffron Walden, Essex CB10 1SS at about 13:00
 
They're mostly pretty friendly, if a little unsightly. Feel free to roll up in a car if you just want a chat.
