1976 Moto Guzzi 850 Lemans Project


Up for auction on eBay is this Moto Guzzi that is going to need a bit of work in the cosmetics department. Given the lack of description and the high starting price, it isn’t too surprising that there are zero bidders and the price is $3,995. Reasons for this probably include the cracked fins on the heads, and the bike’s origins as a supposed race bike. If it still had the straight-cut gears and the Dellorto carbs, that might be a little better. Actually, it may still have the race gearbox, but the seller doesn’t really know.

I guess the final analysis of this bike would say that it is a good example of an eBay bike that the buyer should investigate further before placing a bid. Given that there is only an hour left in the auction it is likely that we will see it pop up again for sale…
