Moto Guzzi Nuovo Falconi 500 electric start, ready to ride SOLD (1977)
|Moto Guzzi Nuovo Falcone|
Manufactured 1977 and imported to the UK in 2016.
Registered in UK on an age related plate so will qualify for free tax very soon.
Unrestored and original, this bike has not been tarted up for sale, but runs very well indeed, very well maintained with just 7200 km showing on the clock. Cosmetically it is not perfect, but mechanically and electrically it is the best one I have owned.
It is not possible to prove this mileage is correct, but I have had 3 of these bikes and this one leaks no oil, has the smoothest engine I have ever heard and pulls better than any other I have owned.
This has the dynostart as well as the kick start. The dynostart works perfectly and silently starts the engine at the touch of a button. Engine settles quickly to an even, slow tick over with no smoke or rattles.
Also fitted is the original siren, these are very rare, not that useful, but nice to have.
Original hard luggage is also included as seen in the pictures.
A good Nuovo Falcone is a joy to ride, progress is never hurried, the gear change is slow, but the handling and brakes are very good considering the age and style of the bike. Parts are incredibly easy to get from a number of specialists in both the UK and Europe. Worth shopping around as some specialists seem much more expensive than others. I'll let the new owner know who I use. I can also supply an English workshop/maintenance manual via email to the new owner. They are very straight forward to maintain.
Mileage may increase slightly as I do enjoy riding it, so may well go out for one last ride before sale. It chuffs along without a care in the world at about 50/55 mph. There is more speed available, but that's not really the point of these bikes.
I'm only selling as I have decided three of the same bike is two to many. I'll be keeping the army green one mainly as it burns oil and rattles terribly at speed so it doesn't seem fair to sell the green one. I had a blue one as well, but this has sold to a friend, who loves it.
