Re: Plated cylinders

Most aircraft cylinders are Nickel Silicon Carbide plated on steel bores (not sleeves, but cylinders made from one piece). I had it done at Millenium too and gotten great results, mostly in longevity and reduced fuel consumption. I see that they will do aluminum sleeves for bikes too. I don't know i...

Re: 1974 750 GT carb question

I had a sticking slides problem that turned out to have an off the wall cause. I concocted a Guzzi boy-racer unit with an aftermarket fiberglass tank and one day the throttle stuck (exciting!). I had the (new dellorto) carbs apart probably half a dozen times looking for problems, but it kept happeni...

Re: ‘74 750 GT Restoration in Seattle

Can't say as that I did know it, though the only Bevel guys I actually know are up here in BC, mostly Square Case SS's of one sort or another. Though there are 203 other GT's I know of in the area, mine seems to be the only one that gets ridden much. Actually just got back from a little scoot to my ...

Re: ‘74 750 GT Restoration in Seattle

Amen to renewing or even improving the original electrics. An ST2 Stator / rotor and MOSFET regulator / rectifier is a good thing and ditching the points for a Dyna 'S' is as well. I don't know anything about the later handlebar switches, but if they're original 40+ YO, safe to say they would certai...

Re: Wanted to purchase RT450

https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/rds/mcy/d/1971-ducati-t-450-desmo/6569136184.html $6,900 CDN = ~ $5,474 US Seems kinda strong, but maybe you could beat him down a bit. Being a "competition" bike it might not have a title which would complicate import into the US. https://images.craigslist.org/00o0o_...

Re: 750 GT 4-Hole Solid-Style Front Disc

The measured O.D. is between 274 & 275mm This is the disc I removed from the bike as I got it as a rolling basket case in 2014. I'm led to believe it was last running before it threw the chain through the engine case in the early 90's. It seems likely that this is the disc that it came with as deliv...

Re: 750GT Rolling Basket Challange

A handy little device showed up at the shop - a digital hanging scale. We immediately started weighing various bikes. The 750 GT came in at 472 lb. with full fuel, oil & tool kit. Minus 27 lb. fuel (4.5 US Gal.) & tool kit = 442 lb. Minus 9 lb. oil = ~ 433 lb. dry weight. A stock 1974 T150 Trident n...

Re: Getting back to roots...

Heh Bruce, Yes indeed, the road across the Monashee Pass that you refer to is pretty nice (Vernon > Needles ferry . Nakusp), though I've become a bit of a granny on that one since there seems to have been a rash of people center-punching deer on it over the last few years. Oddly on my #1 road - the ...

Re: Getting back to roots...

Shane, Yep, I know Wolfgang very well. I got a lot of stuff from him for Guzzis and the GT. Been to Nakusp many times (the road between Kaslo & New Denver is the best road in BC IMOH). I plan to make the Rocky Mountain Motogiro this Sept. 15-17, or at least the Sat. 'endurance run" part on either my...
