Moto Guzzi V7 Special

My Moto Guzzi V7 Spezial

The V7 was a dinosaur. The effect on onlookers was just fantastic. I loved it. For me it was clear that in the future I always would ride a Guzzi. I even went to Italy twice with a some of friends to look for another V7.

However, somehow I got stuck with BMW and so I never had enough time to pursue another V7.

I sold the Guzzi because I was very short of cash and I did not have a garage to keep it in. The BMW R25/2 was small enough to fit in my parent's garage next to their car, the Guzzi was just too big, besides, I still had the BMW. So the Guzzi ended up sitting around outside in winter, which took a big toll on all the parts. After all, the finish was Italian, well known for rusting like hell.
