    OK;

    We lost the thread at the last big break-down.

    Let start a new one!

    Here's the last taken picture of my 750 Breva!:

    Occasionally it also looks like this

    And now for oldies, some more Brevas and Nevadas and a few V7Cs maybe?

    A couple of oldies for the collection.

    My 1981 Monza. It has a V65 engine and a 35mm Marzocchi front end on it.
    I thought it was painted in Italian colours but I pulled up at a shop just before Christmas 2007 and a little old lady was walking by. She stopped and said "How lovely, Christmas colours." I just sat there for a second, looked at her and replied "When you're right, you're right!" I've called the bike the Christmas Beetle ever since.

    This is my Sessantacinque GT. It came with the screen, rack and Givi hard bags.

    So...

    Did you experience some noticable differences among these three bikes tested, besides sitting position?
    As they are build on the same frames and motors your observations would be appreciated.

    TIA

    Unfortunately I test rode the small Breva and the Nevada 1.5 years ago so I can remember precious little differences except the riding position :blush:

    I test rode the V7 and the Bellagio last summer and was much impressed with the latter, not so much with the former.
    The Classic kind of felt small in a negative way and not very convincingly retro, just a modern very basic bike with retro looks.
    Couldn't really say anything was wrong with it, but it somehow wasn't nearly as much fun as I hoped for.
    Then again I already have a great retro bike B)

    Here's the V50III I picked up last summer. Originally with the intention of vintage racing it. Still haven't decided if that's what it's going to be used for. It's such a lovely little bike to tool around on.

    My wife put some substantial miles on it last year and she also has fallen in love with it.


    What to do....

    Actually, I didn't do that. The previous owner apparently broke the fender and his solution was to turn it around. I've since gotten another fender to replace it, but haven't had it painted yet.

    It looks kind of silly like that, but served the purpose in the interim.


    Good eyes!

    Took my wife's V7c for a spin on the weekend. Stopped near a fishing port.

    Christiaan, the acronym "MGCB" I assume stands for Moto Guzzi Club-what?
