Restored 1973 Moto Guzzi V-7 Sport For Sale in Iowa
I think I actually beat Tad to this one! Jokes aside, the V7 Sport is a favorite around CSBFS for good reason. Not only were they stunning for their day, these Guzzi’s could achieve a top speed of 125mph while remaining relatively comfortable compared to many other Italian makes of the era.
quote from seller:
For your consideration is a very nice numbers matching 1973 V-7 sport the real deal! This bike came stateside from Haiku Hawaii where it was very corroded from the salt air and going to be used as a parts bike but I bought it and restored it over a period of 3 years finishing in 1995. The motor was torn down and the cylinders were Nicom plated and as I was going to reinstall the motor Frank Wedge put his Raceco built 998cc T-3 motor up for sale. Balanced,blueprinted,Killer Goose dual plug heads,roller tip rocker arms,timing gears 40mm carbs and a very light flywheel. I bought it and made a very fast Sport. I have owned a Lemans I and a Lemans III and this is the fastest and smoothest Guzzi I have ever ridden! The stock motor,carbs and flywheel are still on my bench and goes with the bike along with right hand shift frame rails and pedals. It is left hand shift now one up four down.It has 14331 miles on it since restored (new gauges).Lemans head pipes back to stock V-7 Sport crossover and mufflers. New V-7 sport headpipes included. Seat was made by Sargents with color matched pipeing,Blue dot tail light and blue dot H4 headlight.Relays to stock pill box headlight switch to keep up with the H4 bulb. Spade type fuse box. Comes with old parts shown in picture, Starter,relay etc.It does have an oil leak at the rear of the motor (marks it’s spot when parked on centerstand) No suprises ! I will not ship but can help load or you can ride it home and ship the motor and other parts. Title in hand for bike and a signed title copy by Frank Wedge for the motor. Reason for selling is I want a new California. Yes I’m Stupid and getting old
