  1. Ciao Guest - we've been proud to harbor such wonderful Guzzisti camaraderie since 2005, for FREE. Times have changed, and so have the attitudes and expectations of far too many. Starting Jan 1, 2020, we will likely be shifting to a pay to participate format. You will still be able to read for free. This should alleviate all of the opinionated negativity that the free social media channels have created. If you are a donor or customer of ours, you're in, just use the Contact tab above if your account is not already promoted, or you can Upgrade your account once signed in. Or the Donate tab above is another option. We look forward to continuing this service to the Guzzi community, but it is not cheap or easy to host and maintain. We wish you the best for the Holidays and in the New Year.

    I did a black wrinkle finish on the covers, and brushed the high spots. I ordered the unfinished plates, and I sanded down the machining marks and brushed the top surface to match. Looks much better than the stockers I think!

    Much better... well done! Thanks for posting!

    A few more of the polished ones below. The powder-coated versions are done, and I should have the anodized versions back early next week. I'll post when I do, and rush out paid orders. I only have a few left of each, so grab them while they last.
