1975 Moto Guzzi 850T arrives for restoration

Posted by on March 22, 2012

Last summer we took delivery of this true moto simpatico. Our instructions were to revive, restore and upgrade – to prepare for future touring. Now that the rebuild has begun in earnest, it’s time to start to tell her remarkable story. She is a much-loved, well-travelled and very tired old girl. Bought new in Johannesburg by her one and only owner, her first job was to carry him and his new wife home to England – overland from Botswana and East Africa, via India, Nepal, Kashmir, Afghanistan and Iran, and stopping off at the Guzzi factory in Mandello along the way.
