  3. nice vid, bloody hell that nearly made me want a Guzzi there for a sec :p

    Taking a wild guess but they could be Conti Pipes they were slapped on many Euro bikes and sounded fecking sweet.

    Cheers :cool:

  5. Lovely piece of film, made to look grainy and sixties-ish, very clever.

    And the old 850 DID sound nice.

  6. The old 850 guzzi motors had a crackly sound with pipes compared to the newer 1100 Guzzi motors (which are more of a boom boom sound).

    Zebee Johnstone had for sale (not sure if she's still got it) a reliable but cosmetically challenged 850T3 (the basis of the bike in the picture) recently... would make someone who had the time (ie not me) a great project bike :)

  7. I've been looking for pix of the Mike Baldwin/Reno Leoni Daytona winning 850 from the 70's, but I can't find one. That was a mean machine; beat the Kawas and Hondas and the Cook Neilsen Ducati too.....
