Hi all, I am relatively new in the Guzzi's world, just bought an old GT1000 (it might be a sp2 though), year 1992 that needs to be fully restored. To be honest, what I actually bought is an incomplete engine (with so many missing pieces that it is not worth to buy them all to revive this engine) mounted into an old frame (again, no wheels, no gear box, no transmission, etc etc), but matching numbers and documents are there :)

Said that, I bought it because a friend of mine has a Breva 1100 that he could sell me for my project (he had a major accident with it and almost destroyed it -happily he just had minor injuries!!!-).

So, given the circumstances, I am planing now to convert my GT1000 into a modern cafe racer by using the parts of the crashed Breva 1100, and I would like to start with the engine. By looking at both engine block's (GT1000 and Breva 1100) externally, they look identical....

So the question is: would it be possible to "transfer" all parts of a Breva 1100 engine (everything!! including pistons, cylinders, crankshaft, etc etc) into a GT1000 block motor?

I will really appreciate your feedback. it will help me to decide if I take the Breva or I start looking for a cheap GT1000 of the nineties...

looking forward!
(the engine has so many missing pieces that it is not wotrh )

Can I be the first to wish you luck in this project, you sound like one brave hombre, and though I can't offer tech advice, I wanted to mention that photographs will be a tremendous help as you progress.
I'm sure more useful advice will follow ...
Saludos from Spain.

Are you saying you want to but the Breva engine complete into a GT1000 frame?

Or are you wanting to put the Breva engine parts into the GT1000 engine block?

Some research of the relevant parts books should give you an indication of suitability, as the corresponding part no's will be pretty much the same.

Perhaps the 'easier' option would be to mount the entire Breva engine in to the GT frame - or do the original crankcases have to be kept for legal reasons?

Good luck!
