For sale Moto Guzzi V50 IIΙ (1983)



Moto Guzzi V50 III for sale

The V50 in General

When De Tomaso took over Moto Guzzi in 1973, he brought over his own views on how the firm should act in order to avoid the financial dead end. Noticing that the previous management was stuck in producing only big twins with increased manufacturing cost, he instructs Lino Tonti (the firm's very capable chief engineer) to develop and produce smaller capacity twinsin order to cover that gap in the market, emphasizing in reducing costs through new production methods and automations, available at the Innocenti factory, also owned by the group.

This way, the V50 emerged in 1975, the V50 II in 1977, both models with small production capacity, and in 1979 the V50 III with full capacity. Despite the split crankcase, gearbox mounted swingarm, heron type combustion chamber etc, costs were not low enough to match the competition from Far East, therefore although its handling, brakes, low weight, reliability were positively received, it didn't achieve the sales volume intended.

The factory also launched many versions adapted for public services, and the bikes  "served" them quite successfully.

Today it is one of the easiest to use, timeless and economical choices for entering the classic Moto Guzzi world.

Few words for the particular

It’s 1982 model bought from a close friend in Athens, who from 1992 was intending to restore it but never decided to start. It was a real wreck, neglected, ready for recycling!

At stage 1 we collected all the missing parts, of main or secondary use. Many new ones such as tank, saddle, crash barriers, battery etc and also a long list of well used, were found here or ordered abroad via the net. Next stage was to paint the frame and peripherals and the final one to assemble it following precisely the factory specs.

When the engine came to life after decades of deep sleep and after the first trial ride it proved to us that it was worth the effort and time spent. Power comes linearly throughout the rev. range, no peculiar noises, no oil consumption, she handles and brakes as she should. Another classic Guzzi «rescued» by the abandonment and eventually from the press!

It can be certified as historic vehicle gaining the benefits of this certification. Test ride and inspection accepted.
