    Updated the original post with some pictures snapped with my phone today.
    Thanks, I'm glad you like it. I'm really happy, I put in a lot of work to find all the right look and parts to match that.
    A lot of credit goes to Adam Nestor who lay down the paint job and did most of the assembly job after the crash. He is definately a world class bike builder/mechanic. I felt really safe turning over the bike to him. I've built 4 café racers before this and having his help on this saved me months of buildtime and made it possible to set the standards higher.

    Magni pipes are from Magni in Italy. I can only recomend them. The roar of this bike goes from a base thump at 800 revs idle (know this is supposedly bad for bike but it changes the character to the better) and to a noice that big block Guzzis envy.

    Hi
    I'm new here, so I wanted to show you what bike I'm riding.
    It's the V7 Classic with Mistral exhausts, bar-end mirrors and cowl.
    Next thing to change is a short rear fender and a leather tank belt.
    (And maybe another claxon, because the sound is like you hear a little 50cc coming)

    It's not the greatest picture, but you can see what it's about..

    kasi, great looking bike - very unique. I especially like that you didn't add the ugly tailpiece from the Record kit.

    Cheers!

    Hey Guys, New to the forums here but a happy new Guzzi owner. Was planning on purchasing a Triumph Thruxton until I saw this beauty, a 2010 V7 classic. Here are a couple of photos on her maiden voyage and one of my pup helping me install the Mistrals.
    Cheers!

    Hey Pete, well congrats and welcome to the GT Famiglia. Love to get your VIN# and info for the first post of this thread. Thruxton's are a dime a dozen these days, so good choice.
    I'm just west of you in the hills, so if I can be of any help with almost anything including service or performance related, pop in if you end up in the Santa Monica Mtns.
    Post again/often! Cheers.

    I've been meaning to post for a while, and finally got around to it.

    Here is my V7 Special with cheap Jafrum leather bags:

    And here it is with even cheaper canvas bags and bar end mirrors:

    V7 Racer is really a beautiful bike. But all V7 models should have had a little more power. about 70 horsepower would have been nice.

    Are there any of you all out there who have a good explanation why the MG has chosen to have only just below 50HP in the 750cc bikes?

    Yes, quite simple... the 750 started life as a V35 with a heron head. It was built as an affordable utility transit machine. It grew to a V50, then 65, then finally the 750 with the same poor-flow head design. Sad part is they made the V65 Lario 4V head that was very decent, then extinguished.
    There was slight noise earlier this year for an "all new" mid-size engine, but nothing showed at EICMA this year where they first hinted in might. I suspect you should count on seeing something in the near future.

    Here's a shot of my V7Classic last month.

    She currently undergoing modifications (fender eliminator, indicators, Ikon shocks and springs, chin fairing kit).

    Mods completed include, Agostini exhaust, café seat, bar-end mirrors, pipe heat wrap.

    I'm in love!
