name: Philippe Szendroi
notes: " I totally refurbished the bike 4 years ago and rode it since with absolutely no trouble (45, 000 km now since refurbishment). I went to England, Swiszerland, Italy, Spain, Portugal and a lot in France (I'm just back from a week vacation in Normandy, 1500km in 7 days with lugagge and girlfriend). My bike is not 100% genuine. Engine is still 750 with 30mm Dell'Orto but exhausts are Lafranconi Competizione. Front wheel is a 4 pads drum brake but 230mm Grimeca and not 220mm Guzzi (it is almost the same look but efficiency is much better, otherwise disks where necessary especialy when riding with my girlfriend). Rear suspension is Koni. And paint is absolutely not original, since frame is red (was black before) and boby is yellow (the nice green was hard to find 5 years ago, but now Renault's Scenic green is so close, so maybe one day ...). Next Sept 19, it will be 30 years the bike was first registred in France. Unfortunately, I ignore its history and previous owners, but I'm sure it's happy today to be in my hands. And I really enjoy this bike : fun, reliable, beautifull, easy to maintain ... I don't understand why so few are used instead of sleeping in garages or museums."
