Hello from Geraldton Western Australia.

Thanks for the add to the forum.

Picked up my first  Guzzi. A 1999 California Jackal

Has been badly neglected, dropped and hand painted a couple of times.
Held together with cable ties and fencing wire.
Still picked her up cheap and will make for an awesome cafe racer project.
photo's to follow. I plan to document the build over time.

Welcome aboard. Some photos of the bike as it is now would be great.

That looks a cracking base for any project that you may have in mind.

Hi and welcome, INSTG8R. 

My garage is full of Guzzi junk from a couple of projects. Send me a pm if you need any bits. What I don't have I can source easily. I'm down the road in Kalamunda.

Sorry for such a late reply GU221. Are you taking part in the Perth DGR 2018. I'm riding the Guzzi down.

Stage 1 complete. Engine running smooth as silk. Brakes pull up real nice. Side panels fitted correctly to their respective sides. Indicators and brake lights working. Broken switch block and mirrors replaced. New front tyre fitted. Front/ rear guards and exhaust cut down. Quick once over with some mat black. Not pretty but presentable all in time for the Perth Western Australia DGR 2018. On to stage 3. The café conversion.
