The Motorcycle as ART: Timeless Appearance, Awesome Design Engineering
Born April, 1973 in Mandello Lario Italy, this matching numbers (VP-057483) Loop Frame Guzzi Eldorado is fully functional and better than originally delivered.

Compared to Harley Davidson's '74, of the same era, the Eldorado came with tighter turning radius for in-town agility and stronger power to weight ratio [64bHP/600lbs.]. Designed for safety, handling, easy access to replaceable tune-up parts and long life, the Guzzis became favorite among California Highway Patrol and LAPD motorcycle corps.

Made roadworthy by one engineer/owner over the past 23 years (my 3rd Moto Guzzi ground-up restoration), each part was removed, restored to specs and replaced with new original stock as applicable e.g. new wire harness, switches, signals, (rebuilt Bosch Generator, Starter and Horn). Support systems are made like new e.g. Suspension damping and rebuilt Del Orto naturally aspirated carburetors. Show chrome accents unique Guzzi styling and functional details along with original Lafranconi muffler system.

Now completely restored with new Nikasil Cylinder/Hemi head piston set, new Formula 1 Main Bearings, machined crankshaft, heads and valves this bike is fresh, sparkling and will perform. I personally rode the 543+ break-in mile/trials on mid-Ohio byways during Spring 2024 and assure this clean-titled bike is proven and road ready. This 51 year time capsule is a faithful OEM tribute to the Moto Guzzi marque. Enjoy the experience.
