    This is a gripe post: Anybody else having trouble with orders from Harper's Moto Guzzi? Delays, lost orders, broken promises, overcharged shipping, etc. I'd love to find an alternative, but for older V50ii parts, but there's not to many good options. I've heard good things about Elk Grove Moto Guzzi in California but they don't support older bikes. I suppose I'm left with eBay... Suggestions & ideas appreciated.

    Never in the past 40 years. But it is a new world.
    M G. Cycle is great at the old stuff.

    I’ve bought tons of stuff from Curtis and never had an issue like you described.

    Strange.

    I’ve also bought tons from MG Cycle with no issues.

    MG Cycle is affiliated with Stein Dinse in Germany and they are simply awesome. My stuff from them comes in 2 - 3 days via DHL, and it’s always spot on perfect.

    I have so far had a great experience dealing with Harpers.Been having a tough time gettig a windshield bracket for my Eldorado as some of the Moto Guzzi parts have been discontinued already for the 1400's.Called Harpers and the gentleman I spoke with was very helpful and gave me a few options as which way to proceed.

    Harpers has helped me with parts for my V50 maybe for 4 decades. Never had an issue.

    Just called them about parts for my V9 Roamer. Now they did not have them as they say there were part number changes and they have yet to figure out cross reference. Always helpful.

    OH - Got the parts at MG Cycle.

    Well, I tried out MG Cycle and it was great. No issues with delays or lost orders like with Harpers. I got my heads back from the machine shop too, but then I broke my hand a month ago so it's all going to have to sit in pieces for another couple months. :oops: Worst part about having a broken hand is not the broken bone or issues with work, it's not being able to ride!
