    Anyone know what Guzzi this is? I'm interested in the headlight; it's a projector and I'd like to see if it could be fitted to the Griso.

    Looks like an 1100 Breva with Hepco Becker engine guards. Don't be in a hurry to get that headlight. It isn't that good. It is so poor, I'm reluctant to ride my Breva after dark.

    Hi,

    mmm. I'm quite satisfied with the light of my G12.
    Okay, you see less as during daytime, but that's normal... :mrgreen:

    HHmmmmmmm...... My Griso is the worst of all my bikes except my wifes ex250 kwaka(ninja to some folks)! The original H/light on the T3 was worse but a halogen globe fixed it years ago. My fav is on the Monster even with a standard 55/60w globe. Thankyou Mr Bosch...
    I think the Griso needs the little globe shroud (that many cars have) to deflect the light back onto the reflector :) ;) ;)

    The Griso's is pretty good for being seen during the day since it throws light everywhere. I also put in an Hella Yellowstar bulb which is very eye-catching. But night time is like driving with a glowstick.

    I've been considering one of these http://store.revivalcycles.com/collecti ... dheadlight but I haven't tried it yet. It would probably require making spacers/adapters to mount to a modern Guzzi.

    I'd bet that would drop right into the Griso's housing!

    Back to the original question. It's a B12, not imported to the US. Same as the S12 but with B trim, but the front fender appears to be the same and the Norge, note the flat black paint in the center. The headlight bucket seems to be too deep to fit the Griso. Not sure the Griso would look good with a big snout.

    The revival headlight looks great. Would work on on my T-3 but would have to route the wiring harness away from the headlight bucket. Bah - too much work. Anybody seen this headlight in action?
