    Anyone got one of these, a 350 TT.

    I've agreed a deal to buy it, imported from Italy, 22000km, circa 1984-86, very clean, it looks like its never been off road!

    Found in a barn near Milan with a bunch of other bikes.

    Needs a battery and the carbs sorting out, runs on one pot only.

    Bumped,,,,,,,,,,,,so nobody got one?

    I've had it dated as 1984 by the MG Owners Club in the UK.

    Not had time to tinker yet

    The TT is a pretty rare beast so I'm not surprised that you got no replies !

    Finally started some work.:)
    Low compression on the left, so pulled the head off, looks like the valves need relapping.
    Carbs were full of crud, fork oil was black, brakes fluid likewise but the brake system is Ok bar a front hose, all the seals were like new:)
    Oh and the starter motor is a bit sticky - may be needs that extra wire direct from the battery.

    OK, heads cleaned up, de-coked and valves relapped, compression improved.

    I did both sides

    Already stripped and cleaned the carbs, just new gaskets and seals

    So thought I'd just pop the tank back on and see it it work start.

    Well f**k me, it started almost first time, , just needed a few spins to get the fuel in:):):)

    Have a listen/look here



    Sounds rough but then nothing set up in this clip, I need to balance the carbs etc and set the cables, check the gaps etc

    So all it needs now is the brakes to be fitted, refill the forks, do a lot more cleaning and then on the road:):)

    I just love the looks of this. It would make a nice addition to my stable if I could find one stupid cheap. I have never seen one. I might even be able to reach the ground from the seat!

    great to see you got it up and running ,there is one for sale at North Leicester Motorcycles in the UK for £2600 .I ve seen a few about in the uk but never got to talk to the owners . If it handles anything like my 650 you will have fun,fun,fun . My 650 enjoys green lanes so your 350 should be happy also:clap:

    I have a 86 V65TT and it is rare but your V35TT makes mine look mainstream.

    Hi everybody.

    I am looking for infos about the small and very rare V35NTX, a bike sold beetween 1985 and 1988, with a 350cc engine and a trail frame and forks. It was a fine little bike, and it seems none has survived. I intend to try and rebuild one, but I would have to find a frame, this being very different from the roadster. All informations appreciated, and maybe an old bike from the back of a garage available somewhere, but rather in europe, I don't think this model has been sold in US. a little picture to show the baby itself.

    thanks for any tips, and good rides to all.
    HG.

    Welcome to the GT Forum HG. They are quite rare, but I've combined your post with this thread for above info for you to see. The TT was only brought into the States as a V65TT, see; https://www.guzzitech.com/forums/threads/v65tt.1434/ -- also see; odd-bike.com/2014/04/moto-guzzi-v-twin-off-roaders.html

    I'd love to find one of these myself. the wacky insurance rates here in BC means anything under 400ccs is basically free to run, and a bike like this would suit me perfectly.

    I have no idea how to go about importing one tho.
