This is a high quality restoration with very few miles since completion. The bike has 37,691 original miles and around 1,000 since restoration and upgrades. Paint is in good condition with pinstriping and Moto Guzzi graphics under the clearcoat. Two minor scrapes (rear fender bottom and near tank cap) but overall excellent condition. One crack in the front bates bag at the mount. Excellent rider, always starts, runs well and gets lots of comments and looks. Professionally maintained by local Ducati/Guzzi technician during my ownership. Always stored in climate controlled garage.
Will gladly assist with coordination of mover and short term storage until shipper can pick up bike.
