With the death of Giorgio Parodi in 1955 followed by Carlo Guzzi’s death in 1964, great changes were afoot at Moto Guzzi. The company was bought by SEIMN and the emphasis of production was directed more towards larger sporting machines rather than the lightweight machines for which the marque had previously been noted. Designer Carcano introduced the 90° twin and it was this engine design, in 703cc form which was fitted in the new V7 model introduced in 1967. In 1971 the 750cc V7 Special was announced followed soon after by the V7 Sport which was highly acclaimed and set Moto Guzzi on a firm financial footing prior to the integration with De Tomaso. This V7 Sport has been in the present ownership for approximately six years, one of two similar machines owned by the vendor. It was last used in 2003 and was in good running order at the time but will benefit from the usual gentle recommissioning prior to using the bike to its full potential. It is offered with a Swansea V5 registration document and a very good history file containing invoices for work undertaken and other useful information. The bike is presented in traditional V7 Sport black livery with red tank stripes.
