1977 Moto Guzzi 850T-3 custom build "Cheap Trick"

Post #1 by sunnbobb » Thu Jan 16, 2020 3:12 am

Well, sorry I've been a little Mia. I've been consumed with w/a project I started last spring. I picked up a Moto Guzzi that was partially started and took it to the finish line. I didn't share it here because, it's not a wing, LOL. But there was a bit of wing involved. So here are a couple pictures of it. See if you can find the wing part?
