Just wondering how many are still about ? Believe 200 found themselves in the famous Black and Gold livery. Any early photos would be nice, here's mine some 20 odd years ago.

Yep, I've got one (W reg). I may have a photo of it when my mate bought it 30 years ago but think I'll settle with posting one when I get it back on the road next week.

This was mine in the 80's, dunno if it was a C&H model, but you can see the similarities.....
I got it from a shop down a back street in Brighton, who's name escapes me, but they always had one or two Guzzis in their showroom.

I own the remnants of UNM197W, which had 186,000 miles on the clock when someone kindly set fire to it back in 1997. I'm assembling the bits for a rebuild. it started life as a black and gold bike, although it was white after it's early nineties rebuild.

We CAN rebuild it!

I have a Mk2 currently in boxes, reg number UNM something from 1981, think it was black and gold one as remember seeing black under the red had been painted, can't check now as sold off tank and sidepanels years ago. My mate has one, on the right in not very good pic here..

Igor, it lives . . .


Obviously there's a yard of slack in the (heavy) throttle & clutch, no brakes and the fuel pipe kinked so I got home on one cylinder but I'm sure these are just teething troubles! 

Good job I'm not off to Le Mans on Tuesday.  Oh, hang on . . .
