For sale Moto Guzzi V50 Monza 1982 red


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 with small production capacity until 1979,

and with full capacity after that. 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. In 1981 the Monza version was launched, with body similar to the bigger Le Mans of the era.
Today it is one of the easiest to use, timeless and economical choices for entering the classic Moto Guzzi world.

A few words about the motorcycle on sale

It is a 1982 model, bought from Corfu. It was dismantled to pieces years ago waiting for its restoration which never came true from the previous owner's hands. So it was sold in Athens as a true “basket case” and the renewal procedure began with no more delay.

The motor was in perfect state, closed again when found with no damages after inspection. Problems had all the peripheral systems such as the braking system, the electrics, the front suspension, the steering system and the carbs-air filter-exhaust system. They were all renewed, using many new parts. After a few months of restoration works it was ready for the test drive which was successful at once. The aftermarket exhausts are just music to listen and the bike handles, brakes and revs as it should.

It is ready for a transfer of ownership with Greek number plates. Alternatively a FIVA card certification can be easily issued together with historic number plates if someone prefers to diminish the acquisition costs.
