Hi,   

 I'm Mark from Scunthorpe and I have owned a 1989 Lemans V for 30 years but I haven't ridden it for a while. I may be looking for a few hints, tips and advice that enables me to bring it back to its former glory.  Glad to join the group and pleased to see there's still a healthy Guzzi family out there!!!
 Cheers
Mark

Welcome Mark, do you have other bikes on the road? Or are you a non rider at present?

Good to hear that, my two penny’s worth is to do the work needed to get the LeMan back on the road safely and reliably but not get into a full restoration at first, this way is cheaper and quicker and you can find out how well you get on with the bike after the 15 year break.

Welcome indeed To sort the bike really Change oils, drop sump swap filters add battery and give it a go, depending on how it was left you might have to take off and get carbs cleaned you may need to swap out tyres

Spares Used Reboot

New and used Gutsibits

Stainless stuff inc exhausts www.osmc.co.uk

Mechanical spanner twirling you can't handle Nigel at NBS top bloke

electrical stuff Towzatronics, VWP = vehicle wiring products Motoworks used to be Guzzi now BMW BUT older BMW's share many charging components with Guzzi especially if you have Bosch starter/charging system 

Hope that helps 

Fowlers also have a wide range of spares

New tyres are a Must. Old ones can be evil as I have found to my cost in the past!!
