Hi, Ive just got a Guzzi (70s V7) and am kicking myself for not getting one sooner!
I'm Currently getting it road ready by fixing a few things, but other than a bit of an oil leak and a useless front brake there isn't much wrong, I hope.

Welcome, despite what people say you can get the front brakes to work quite well. They are great bikes.

That's a four leading shoe brake, is it not? Careful setting up with correct lever angles should give you very respectable braking. They do self-servo, so take care on wet roads once you've got it sorted.

Lovely bike by the way.

Thanks all.
Yes 4 shoe brake, but it was fairly rusty inside with glazed shoes and nackered cables. Bit of a clean with some new cables should fix it.
