You are looking at one of my favorite bikes in my collection. It’s a 1976 Moto Guzzi 850 Lemans with less than 2000 original miles. I purchased the bike from Atlas Cycles in Tulsa Oklahoma in 2007 with roughly 1000 miles on it. I was told Atlas sold it new in 1976 to a customer who then traded it back in six months later claiming it was too much motorcycle for him. The owner of Atlas really liked the bike so put it in storage at the dealership. He was selling the dealership in 2007 hence I was able to acquire it. It needed a good cleaning, some rubber parts replaced, new tires, carbs cleaned, and fluids changed. Since then she’s been in my collection, started once a year, ridden occasionally hence the 2000 miles. I just had her serviced, new battery, carbs cleaned, and fluids changed so she’s ready to go. As the tires are thirteen years old, I would put a new set on if you plan to ride the bike. Other than this all that is needed is a good cleaning/detailing. As the original seat is very fragile and hard to come by, I stored it when purchased and bought a Corbin, it comes with both. The bike is a blast to ride, smooth, lots of low end grunt, great brakes and entertaining. It’s pretty amazing for a forty four year old bike. The only issue I can find is on the front fairing where the orange meets the red, there's a slight chip with what looks like silver below it. As I was told this bike was never dropped I am not sure what it is, perhaps it's Italian quality control back in the day. New Hampshire does not title bikes this old, it will come with last year’s registration and an Oklahoma title with Atlas as the owner. I’m a sixty year old collector that takes very good care of my flock. The only reason she’s for sale is I’m no longer road riding or going bike shows as I’ve been bitten by the track bug. No, this bike has never seen the track. I’m happy to answer any questions you may have. Please do not waste my time or yours, if you are not prepared to buy it do not bid, I am not interested in trades, will not send money to your shipper, shipping is your responsibility. If you have less that ten positive feedbacks, please contact me before bidding. As this is an auction process, please do not ask what me reserve is as I want to be fair to all. Thanks for looking, happy bidding!
