La « S » et la « GTS », deux des derniers types de Guzzi à utiliser le vénérable moteur semi-culbuté de la marque, furent introduites pour 1934, la première avec le cadre rigide et le changement de vitesse manuel, la seconde avec le cadre suspendu et le sélecteur oscillant au pied. La production de ces deux motos cessa en 1940. Cette GTS fut importée d'Italie en Allemagne dans les années 1980 et achetée par le vendeur actuel en 2002 (certificat de vente dans le dossier). Le moteur a été restauré en 2003, mais le reste de la machine n'a pas été touché afin de respecter son authenticité et sa patine. Dans la collection privée du vendeur, la GTS a été régulièrement entretenue par les spécialistes Moto Guzzi de la région de Munich. Présentée comme étant en bon état général, la machine est offerte avec la copie de l'ancien libretto italien, ses papiers d'immatriculation allemands et son contrôle technique du TüV.

    Two of the last models to featured Guzzi's long-running 'inlet-over-exhaust' engine were the 'S' and 'GTS', which were newly introduced for 1934, the former with rigid frame and hand gear change, the later with sprung frame and rocking-pedal foot change. Production of both ceased in 1940.This GTS was imported into Germany from Italy in the 1980s and purchased by the current vendor in 2002 (purchase receipt on file). The engine was restored in 2003 but the rest of the machine has been left untouched to preserve its originality and patina. While in the owner's private collection the GTS had been serviced regularly by Moto Guzzi specialists in the Munich area. Described as in generally good condition, the machine is offered with a copy of its old Italian libretto, German registration papers and TüV.
