Looks like a pretty cool bike. I'm partial to that old Europian styling. Too bad I'd have to lose about 60 pounds to have a good time on it

Buz you are a lifesaver! I'm bringing the Knuck to store in your garage because I saw there weren't enough oil stains on the floor!

I REALLY want one. Same way I've drooled over the Scrambler (as wellas the old CLs) I really don't know why but the old retro standards really click for me. Lets see what it sells for.


Now only if i could find a dealer with in 200 miles..... wait didn't someone else say that?

A Guzzi dealer in Oceanside? No kidding - which one??

I gave up on Geese largely because of the incompetence of a certain dealer that is closer to me.

...ship your bike to Portland or Seattle... MG has always caught my eye from the 70's LeMans to the new Norge, Stelvio and Copa Italia V11, totally cool bikes IMO and an excellent dealer right down the road...(hmmm what was the credit union's number again)..

I've owned three, all from Moto International (or its predecessors.) Great dealership, great people. Dave Richardson is a wonderful guy to deal with. But down here in San Diego - feh.

Vespa Oceanside. GP in San Diego gave up on Guzzis because of poor support.

Vespa O'side carries Vespa, Piaggio, MG and Aprilia now.

Of course that was a few months ago. They might be out of business now!

Nice bike, I already have the LeMans and I enjoy the hell out of it. However, my friend just picked a new T-100 and this 'retro' V7 will have to go a long way to beat the Bonnie.

About five miles, I'd guess. I rode a T-100 last year and was astonished at its total lack of character and oomph. The V7 will beat in the midrange, easily, even if the T-100 has it at the top. Who takes a retro to the redline, anyway?
