Default Moto Guzzi

I purchased a Moto Guzzi Centauro the other day. These were never imported into Canada. The one I got was brought in from the USA. Arkansas to be exact. I have always loved the look of these bikes I must be strange as not many were sold worldwide around 1700 total in a four year run. A transverse mounted vee twin. 992 CC's and four valve heads for a 95hp rating. I have not brought it home yet. Next week. Needs fork seals done but other than that looks like it's good to go. I hope I am not just trying to relive my youth! Here's a link to a picture of one off the web.http://moto.zombdrive.com/image-mode...uro-4.jpg.html

Nice bike. I like the big machines. What year is the one you bought?

On my screen, it's about 2" wide by 1" high.
