Well Frank, I didn't ride the bike for a year because of the valve situation. My Guzzi has 24000 miles on it and that is about the time they usually blow up. I did a lot of research and found out some of the valve spring problems had been solved by the dealers by putting in softer single spring valve springs. I checked mine and the fix had been done, but knowing their weakness, the valves were replaced with new stainless ones..... of course, while I was at it I ported and polished the heads, bought K&Ns, rejetted the carbs, and put on mega exhaust. Very nice bike and much faster than you would think.........

Hey..... do we have any Moto Morini guys out there???? They made some sweet 350s and 500s. The sport 350 was as fast as the 500. The sport models came with cafe seats and clip-on bars from the factory. Here are a couple of shots of my 500 Sport.......

I have only seen two of these bikes except in magazines. I saw one at Mid-Ohio in the 90's and ran across this one for sale about three years ago. The guy who owned it had a very nice Italian collection, mostly Laverda, but a couple of Ducs and a couple of very rare Morinis.....

I've owned a few Ducs over the years. Still have the Senna ST4s. The others were bought as non-running project bikes that I fixed up and sold.

Thanks for the compliments, fellas. I didn't have Alazzurra in mind when I did that one, but now that you mention it, that's sure what it looks like.

I really love the old carby SS's. If I didn't do long road trips, I'd trade the ST for an SS in a heartbeat.
