Hi, just sold my 3rd Ducati as I fancy returning to Guzzis, used to have an 850T5 years ago. I am now looking for a California in the £2500 + region.

If you have anything for sale that fits the bill, please let me know by PM.

cheers.

I've just been looking at the 1100cc Cali's on eBay.I know nothing about them but they certainly look to me like a lot of motorcycle for the money.
Ideal I imagine for long term high mileage ownership.

the key will cost you a fiver and the KM's dont affect anything - my T5 runs on KM's without any issue.

looks like it was at 17700km in 2006, off road (no Mot) until  rising to 17818 in 2011 - so not much movement there then.  off the road again 2013- 2014 when MOT'd in 2015 at 20,284  and did 600 last year.

looks like the seller deals in mechanical things - may be trade but 100% feedback for what its worth.

It looks like a nice clean machine - but obviously a personal visit would be best.  I reckon its worth looking at @ £2500 as it really isnt far from you.    great machines, easy to work on, will go on forever.

Great.Big smile

I really like the look of that bike and the colour scheme is lovely.

One point for when you are ever ordering spares though and that is that the bike is an 1100i NOT an EV  ( Evolution ).

I have had an EV and now own an 1100i and whilst the engine and box are the same, the front forks, front brakes, wheels, mudguards , seats, instruments, chrome rear trim etc etc are all totally different.

Please don't think that I am saying that you have been misled by the seller, many people make the mistake of incorrectly identifying the model. The only point that I am making is that you are aware of which California you have bought so as to avoid mistakes with spares. You have not bought an inferior bike just an earlier model which would have no influence on price .

MY CALI EV.


I love my Cali 1100i and am sure that you will be delighted with yours.Thumbs Up

I like the way the seller said "new brake pads replaced".
It'll have knackered ones in now then.
