The point is that the "bike" cannot go back on the road. Thus I guess you could use the frame for a track bike or bits of it for a kit car but not the whole thing nor the identity.  I'd missed the obliterated frame number first time round.  Would it fit in a Tonti?

I think it's engine + drive train only, though you'd think the seller would make it crystal clear in the insertion that the frame was missing its VIN/been cancelled from the DVLA system for whatever reason. I'm sure it'd fit into a Tontoi frame with minium work, quite tempting...

This Is going crazy!
All I wanted was a used Bellagio to customise but it seems that's too much to ask.
I have given up on that as the Bellagio seems to be like the lost ark in MG circles!
Best and easy option for me  ....a used V7.
I'm fed up with all the bollocks!!!
Bidding on a V7 right now...keep yer Bellagio's!

Hi All,
Thanks for all your help and advice.
I have kinda gone off the boil looking for used Guzzi's, I went after three V7's over the weekend.
All sold!  (wrong time of the year to buy me thinks)
I'm sticking with just my Griso unless something unmissable shows.

Wildhenry.

Bellagios do come up for sale, but it's a case of waiting and watching. To do that you need another bike mean time, especially now there is a sign that the weather is changing for the better.
I sold my Bellagio to go the classic way, but of all the newer bikes the Bellagio is the only one I would by now. I would be tempted to give it a face lift too, if I got another.

I'm hearing you. Bellagio was the first Guzzi I rode that put a grin on my face after 23 years of an LM. Sold it to buy a classic. Bought another Bella later, and modified to suit. Will likely keep it forever.

Damn!
In the process of buying a V7 now...me and my impatience.
Thanks for the tip off .....but they are asking a fair bit more than I wanted to pay as I'm planning to customize it to look more like a V7 but with 75 bhp!
Why oh why didn't Moto Guzzi put the Bellagio engine into the V7? that would make a great bike!
If the deal doesn't come off I might go for it although I doubt it will hang around for very long!
