I am currently looking to buy a loop frame, at the moment I will consider any model. I will consider anything offered, but would prefer something that is currently road worthy. I live in Bromley , kent, but would be prepared to travel for the right bike. thank you.

Made in Italy motorcycles in Suffolk have a nice 850 GT for sale at present.Looks expensive but,it's about the same price (I think) as a new V7 and it's value will rise rather than fall.
Car and Classic have three loops on offer but only if you want to go to Belgium to take a look.Belgium;not far from Kent
Good luck with your search.

There's an ex LAPD Ambassador on ebay.It's a bit garish perhaps?

How things have changed. This is the ad for the last loop frame I bought and owned back about 6 years ago. Check the price...

There seems to be a slowly growing interest in the loop models, hence their increasing value.Having been a British bike enthusiast for decades and seen their values rise astronomicly it comes as no surprise that Italian machines of the less exotic variety should do likewise.
Laverda twins have become expensive. And quite frankly an SF750 is a much better engineered machine than the home produced 750 twins of the day.
The loops make no pretence of being sporty.They are a tourer, plain and simple.Their robust simplicity I think is a large part of their appeal as is the lack of plastic bodywork.
I love Bonnies and Velo's etc but none of our own products of the sixties and seventies are as robust as those which came from Italy.
I'll now put on my flack jacket and helmet!!!!!!

Thank you everyone for your interest in my wanted post. I have now purchased an V850 GT.
All I have now to worry about , is the chrome bores on the 100 mile ride home, from my purchase point!

Pondering the subject of chrome bores;I wonder if anyone can answer my question.I fitted a pair of nikasil lined barrels to an 850T many years ago and cannot remember if they were Gilardino or not.Do all nikasil barrels have the Gilardino logo by the bottom fin,or is this a more recent thing?Also,when Guzzi started fitting nikasil barrels to new machines was Gilardino the original equipment supplier?
