Hi 

I have just started rebuilding a LM 2 that has come from Germany.

Not in bad condition but has been painted a horrid blue, starts OK but has been standing for about 5 years.
The battery has been moved to where the main stand was and it is supposed to have a larger bore but I have not checked this yet.
It was imported to Germany and was supposed to have been raced in Italy but we are trying to confirm this.

I have it stripped down and starting to get a list of parts together, looking at getting the frame sorted it was painted red. I am trying to find out what the original frame colour was can anyone tell me. 
On the pictures of standard ones they look like a satin black rather than gloss.

I am planning on using it for classic Spa IOM classic 1000 bikes etc.

Prob going to have loads more questions.

Cheers
Paul

Hello Paul

AFAIK all LM2 came with gloss black frames from the factory. Original body colours options where red, blue and white.
Does you bike have any performance parts?

It is supposed to have a big bore kit but I still need to check this, Exhausts are non standard and the forks do not look original.

It did have a race fairing according to the German owner but his Dad gave it to the dustman as he was fed up with it being in his way.Cry

I am trying to find out the guy who imported it into Germany then go from there.

Hi Paul
This sounds like a fascinating bike. Any chance of posting some photos up of it??
Shame about that race fairing being sent out with the trash. It will be very interesting to find out the history. Hopefully that won't turn into a saga.

I wouldn't be surprised if you find more trick parts which people use to make a guzzi competative. These may stress the bike but are not necessarily bad.

I have it in two boxes now with the frame rubbed down ready for paint just waiting to see what colour to go for.

If I can find some info on it I will paint it the original red if not I will go with the standard colour.
