Ultime expression de la « mono » classique style vintage de Guzzi, la légendaire Falcone fut introduite en 1950. Offerte en version Sport, Turismo et aux spécifications Armée/Police, la Falcone survécut à ses camarades, la Turismo demeurant en production jusqu'en 1963, date à laquelle elle fit place à la Falcon Nuovo. Provenant initialement d'Italie, cette Falcone a été immatriculée en Allemagne depuis septembre 1984. Totalement restaurée à la fin des années 1980, elle fut achetée par le vendeur actuel en 1990. Le side-car est une réplique fidèle du modèle SMIT Parri fabriqée par un ex employé de la firme de Turin en 2001-2002 sur la base des plans originaux. Depuis son acquisition, la Guzzi a fait partie de la collection privée du vendeur en étant régulièrement entretenue par les spécialistes Moto Guzzi de la région de Munich. Présentée comme étant en bon état général, la machine est offerte avec les photos du jour de sa découverte, ses papiers d'immatriculation allemands et son contrôle technique du TüV.

    Ultimate expression of Guzzi's classic, Vintage-style single, the legendary Falcone was introduced in 1950. Offered in Sport, Turismo and military/police specifications, the Falcone outlived all its fellows, the Turismo remaining in production until 1963 when it was replaced by the Falcone Nuovo. Previously resident in Italy, this Falcone has been registered in Germany since September 1984. Totally restored in the late 1980s, it was acquired by the current vendor in 1990. The sidecar is a faithful replica of an SMIT Parri design, built by an ex-employee of the Turin-based company in 2001/2002 using original drawings. Since acquisition the Guzzi has formed part of the vendor's private collection and been serviced regularly by Moto-Guzzi specialists in the Munich area. Described as in generally good condition, the machine is offered with German registration papers and TüV.
