    The T3 was one of Moto Guzzi best sellers so the question is, have they all been turned into cafe racers ?
    Have been trying to find just a nice clean example for awhile now with no luck so please tell me you still see standard T3's out there.

    One belonging to a customer on my lift right now getting a full rewire and top-end rebuild. Another waiting for me to "get around to it", probably this Winter. My friend Lance has one also. All three are fairly standard, not cafe'd.

    They are out there, but rare in the sense that no one wants to sell them! Keep looking, you'll find one. If you haven't already, keep an eye on; http://mgnoc.com/classifieds.html

    I see Robert there are a few Guzzi's for sale in Spain on the carandclassic site etc. I have been trying to find a bike in the US or UK just for the ease of shipping but if I did find a bike in Spain it can't be that hard to ship to NZ ?

    Also try www.milanuncios.com. There are a few there for sale, under MOTOR select Motos then under MARCA select Moto Guzzi, MODELO Select T3, then BUSCAR. There are a few for sale private and trade. You could also try Motos Caparros (motoguzzibarcelona.com). He is the longest established dealer in Spain.

    Fiat500.

    Shipping is easy.

    Importing may be a headache, depending on NZ customs and excise regulations. AND local vehicle registration licensing and road use rules.

    Importing my '78 Lemans (see avatar) into the USA in 1985 was a breeze.
    Had to get a list of parts that needed to be changed "from an approved source" then have a local dealer install and attest that the parts had been installed. Produce all relevant documentation at the local DMV to register 'Ms Raspberry". No emission check and cursory road worthiness / safety checks for motorcycles in 1985.

    Friends tell me USA vehicle import regulations are a lot stricter these days.

    Bottom line check your countries import regs.

    Thanks Blakbird.
    There is no real problem importing into New Zealand but you must have a copy of the ownership papers from seller. After that you pay 15% tax on the combined purchase and freight costs followed by the cost of compliance and fitness checks to put it on the road.
    If bike is from a country that drives on the right you may have to change the headlight to dip in the other direction.
    Robert, I had a look at some T3's for sale in Spain. At least there was a few to chose from but asking prices in Euro made it not cost effective to import, still looks like the US/UK is my best bet to find a bike.
