1977 Moto Guzzi 850cc Le Mans
Registration no. LUY 935N
Frame no. 74125
Engine no. VE74125
Described by Bike magazine as 'the sleekest, horniest thing you've ever seen on two wheels', the Le Mans looked like it was doing 100mph while stationary and on the open road delivered 130mph-plus performance. Without doubt one of the definitive superbikes of the 1970s and today highly collectible. Sold new in the USA, this 'Mark I' Le Mans was imported into the UK by the first owner and registered here in July 1987. The current vendor, who acquired the machine in 2001, is only its second owner. We are advised that the machine has not required any work other than annual servicing, MoT, tyres, etc. The front master cylinder has been replaced with one from a Mark II (original retained) and Koni shock absorbers and braided steel brake hoses fitted. Described by the private vendor as in generally good original condition, the machine is offered with copies of original US documents, two expired MoT certificates and an old-style V5C document.
