    Here's my wife's Nevada outfitted for touring with a Givi windscreen and Cortech bags


    Here's my Breva. We were getting ready for a week-long trip through western BC.


    Finally, here's the two of them together. These pictures were taken a couple of years ago. I've since traded in my small Breva on an 1100. Wife still loves her Nevada.

    The fuel tank is an vintage British fiberglass tank. It had soggy spots, so I had it fixed up and coated for modern gas. I then had it painted with a special paint that makes it look like polished aluminum. This build is about 5 years old now and it has held up very well - pretty much everybody is fooled by the paint job. As you can see from the SS strap, the metal look matches very well. Over the years, some imperfections from the fiberglass have shown through, but it actually enhances the hand-formed aluminum look.

    The side panels are hand built aluminum, rear fender T3 SS, front fender is V65C chrome and seat is again, a vintage british seat.

    Here are a couple of pics of my latest project. An 84 V65 that was in pieces off of ebay. I made the tail light and some of the other parts. The paint is a Toyota pearl color. It only had 22,000 miles on it and came with detailed service records. I still have side panels to make and a custom seat.

    Thankya thankya. :D I do too, but this little booger just crys out for clip ons and rear sets. But, then It would be a Monza, and I couldn't ride it for more than about 20 minutes. A good compromise..

    Sold this last year (it had a gearbox fault which I couldnt fix, new owner restored it). I still miss it, and am looking at mayyyybe getting a V7C or Cafe as I miss the small block buzz.

    [​IMG]

    Bought it when I was 21, I was the youngest Guzzi owner that I know of!

    I loved that machine, especially keeping up with a friend on his Aprilia RS250 Chesterfield on twisty roads round Matlock, passing another friend on his VFR750 round the outside of a bend at 90, hurtling over a hump-back bridge on a B road at about the same speed (and surviving!). Lots of fun!

    :D Since it's the small block forum I might be able to say this :unsure: Unlike the red 1200 Sport the red 750 is dam sexy..... but so is the black one. Just an awesome looking bike. We talk about painting her black to match my 1200S (hiding in the background in this pic)

    You can't see it in the photo but when 750 went down the road sometime in her life either the tank or front fender and tail got replaced so the reds don't quite match ,the tank has faded....... it could be cheaper just to re -paint the tank.

    Everyone drools over my black Sport.......... except when we ride together then the 750 gets all the looks :( And once people work out a girls riding it :woohoo: :blush: I may as well be back on my old yellow Triumph :lol: My kung fu teacher is quite short and I also thought he just hated motorbikes. A few of us have them and he never really pays attention. But I took the 750 for show and tell and he saw us gathered around, came over to look and said "That looks nice, can I sit on it!" :cool:

    Action shot for D riding on the way down from Paluma 14 km of winding roads :cool:
