Hello Guzzisti,

I'm joining the GRiSO forum , after finally acquiring one of these fine machines after a lot of searching. I finally found an 1100 4V GRiSO in black which is absolutely gorgeous.   Had a lot of Italian muscle in the past, 850 Le mans, 1100 sport carb, ducati M900, so its great to get back into the guzzi groove again!!

Cheers Steve ( wimpster) Tyneside , England.

Nice, Does the whole bike have to come apart to paint the frame rails?

Careful masking off and patience paid off , it looks better IMHO, any other thoughts folks???

I am capable of neither of those, i.e., "masking off and patience!" ... and certainly could not do the "thorough" way of taking the machine apart.

That said, think yours looks grand.

Less sure how that would look on mine ... as much as I like red.  Too much of a good thing.

Hmmmmm.  Mebbe nice match to the white, tho, too?

Bill

I like it!!   Very nice.

I think it is even better when painted in red: see this example:

(not sure about the silver rims and I certainly don't like the headlight.)
