Greetings Grisisti.

It is most frustrating lurking here, and not being able to see the pictures, so have joined up. Too much time on my hands at work, which gets spent idly perusing internet forums.

Long time Guzzi tragic, ancient and modern. Mostly LMs. More recently a Norge 8v, and current daily ride is a customised Bellagio. Closet GRiSO fan, having done many miles on them. Love Guzzi roadsters. Always up for a ride.

Cheers Richard

That's me. Think I know you from Ragged Fringe trips? Thanks all for welcome.

My Guzzi stable has been pared down to the bare essentials....

Yep Richard, we have had "discussions" which involved alcohol - seem to remember a crook starter one year, 2 years ago you came in an old Citroen(?). Coming this year? Mr Bob may even be there this time around...

It was a 1955 Peugeot! I missed last year. Work, and moving house got in the way. I'd like to ride over this year, but have some commitments that may disrupt that. If not, I might try the Spag for a change.

Richard, what are the details on your (what looks to be) GRiSO custom with the round valve covers?

Its a Bellagio. Modern V7 tank and seat. Rocker covers are the original ones off my '73 V7 sport. Lots of other mods, but just my interpretation of a modern roadster with a nod to older Guzzis. An easy daily rider, not a café racer.

It's a modified Bellagio. You didn't get the Bellagio in the US. Your loss. It's the shortest stroked big block 2Valver ever built and has all the stuff that racers used to do back in the day. They rev like crazy and pull like a frustrated teenager.

From the factory they are dressed in a weird, but not unattractive 'Cruiser' guise. Rich has done the 'Latterday LeMans' route on his as have several other people here, (Like Wayne, 'Ghezzi'). Nothing really 'GRiSO' about them apart from the fact they're a real 'Outer Darkness' type thing that few people understand.

I love Bellagios. Every time I ride one a bit of wee comes out......

Pete

Take it for a spin if you want to attack the Perth Hills twisties, Pete. But if you do, please put a rubber sheet on the seat..... Mad
