Description

You are looking at one of my favorite bikes in my collection. It's a unmolested 1976 Moto Guzzi 850 Lemans with a lot of patina and less than 2000 original miles. Many find the miles hard to believe however, I purchased the bike from Atlas Cycles in Tulsa Oklahoma in 2007 with roughly 1000 miles on it, this is documented on the title I received from them. 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, needed to get rid of his collection, 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 I left it as is. Yes the frame is a dull black color of seemingly low paint quality. If you research 850 Lemans' this was the way they came from the factory when new, it's a little odd as one would think they would dress up their flagship sport bike offering during this time but they did not. As the original seat is very fragile and hard to come by, I wrapped it in plastic placing it in storage when purchased and bought a Corbin, it comes with both. The other problematic items on these bikes was the switch gear, very fragile, susceptible to water all work as intended on this one. Whenever washing this bike I placed plastic wrap of the switches and velocity stacks. No the bike does not come with air filters as they did not from the factory, only the OEM velocity stacks. The bike is a blast to ride, smooth, lots of low end grunt, great brakes, so long as you use the rear in conjunction with the front as they are linked 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. There is also some scraping on the fairing from the throttle cables which come in contact with it.

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.

Thanks for looking, 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 I have been disappointed in the past. As this is an auction process, please do not ask what me reserve is as I want to be fair to all. My Guzzi is back on the market due to the high bidder last time canceling the sale due to a lack of title which was clearly explained in my ad at the time. However even though NH does not title bikes this old I found I can apply for a title which I have done and it's in process. This should take any concerns that you may have out of your buying decision. Thanks again for looking, happy bidding!
