    Hi everybody. Just a little message to tell that I just finished the restoration of my V75. It was longer than I thought, but very interesting to take and old machine , take it to pieces and succeed in putting it bak together. And it works quite fine. lots of fun. for all people who would like to do the same, it is very easy to work on a Guzzi, everything is logical and well made for an amateur ( like me ) I would suggest to take some pictures during dismantling, and keep them carefully. It helps a lot. Also, havr some small boxes and plastic bags to put the spares and stuff separately, with their function written on it: small washers, nuts and bolts all look the same after a while... two picture to show it is possible to do it! Good rides to all, and take care . HG

    For Blaufeld. T hanks,. a V75 is an uncommmon model, few were made. the last upgrade from the " small blocks family" they started with the 350cc V35, then V50, V65, and finally, V75. It is a 750cc, witn an engine made out of the 650, but, they had allready taken all the metal out inside the cylinders. so, they worked on the stroke, making a longer one, and so a bigger torque. the bike is small, light, with a good grunt, and 3 disc brakes, a good machine to hit small twisty roads, and ride at middle range speeds. It was the base for the new V7 series. nothing really new. Mine was originally rigged for touring use , with a fairing and a big dual seat. I turned it more roadster style, 10kg lighter, for one day rides and fast rambling.
    take care. HG
