Sunny Guzzler

I had to go to a meeting the other day and it was a no-brainer to go on the Guzzi. The last few years I've been lucky enough to be loaned a brand new bike for 9 months of the year. I've had some beauties, but I turned one down this year for a variety of reasons, but mainly so I could ride my Guzzi. I ended up riding with a 1972 BSA 650 Lighning for a while. We appreciated each other's rides at 60mph.
The red trousers are overalls to keep my smart meeting trousers bug and oil-free. GI

Looks like you got yourself a new rear end on the Guzzman Ben. Is that a leather seat instead of the brown suede one?

Mazzel, Ton.

this is Gary's own Guzzi caff racer (also based on an old SP), but yes it's a cheeky Manx Norton style leather seat

It's not Ben's bike, it's mine. His has a red frame, black rims, monoshock... They are similar. His was one of the inspirations to build mine (years before I knew him). The other clue is he signs his posts BP and and I sign mine GI (while Mick, who has a green Guzzi, signs his MP).
