Guzzi’s transverse 90 degree V-twin engine had originally been conceived to power a lightweight military three-wheeler and only later was it reassessed for motorcycle use. It first appeared at the International Milan Show in December 1965. Being for military use the design had dictated that the motor and transmission should be both simple and easy to maintain which is why these bikes have remained so durable some 55 years later.
The early history of this bike is not known, it came to the Uk in 2017 and remained in a private collection having covered aprox 1,500 miles, it currently shows 35,894 miles.
Having been previously restored in Italy the bike remains in very nice condition and has just had a check over and service with a new battery fitted.
A fine example of a handsome classic cruiser.
