V7 Sport "Telaio Rosso" and first V7 Sport
imported into the UK
country: Great Britain
engine number: ?
notes: " I contacted you via your website re: V7 Sport - would be interested to know how many of these are still around, especially the early Telaio Rosso bikes. My name is Andy and I live in Wiltshire UK. I own an original V7 Sport 'Telaio Rosso" with an interesting history (pics available) - probably the first bike to be imported into UK. Used as a sales demonstrator by Rivetts and seen in many contemporary road tests sporting trade plate number 21LF. Though built in 1971 the bike was first registered privately in 1973. I also own a mint T3 which gives much pleasure on dry summer days. Cheers for now, Andy.
Hope Andy will send some more pics soon as the bike is particularly special. The picture above left is from the book "Motor Guzzi Gold Portfolio 1949 - 1973", and is from a road test entitled "Gentle Giant V7", from the June 1972 issue of Motorcycle Sport magazine (all rights the author) - Adam
