The UK Moto Guzzi Le Mans Mk 2 had the 850cc engine, the U.S. version, however, got the new 1000SP’s quieter, cleaner and somewhat detuned 949cc engine. Several sources have suggested this was a response to ever tightening noise and emission regulations, but Greg Field’s book Moto Guzzi Big Twins quotes Mike Berliner of U.S. importer Berliner Corporation saying it was simply a response to American dealers’ belief that bigger was better. Thus was born the U.S. market CX100, which was essentially a touring 1000SP Strada with MkII Le Mans bodywork. Cool.

The 949cc 90-degree air-cooled, overhead valve, wet sump, V-twin engine was fitted into the same Tonti dual cradle frame as before. Two Dell’Orto 30mm carbs (now with proper air filters) fed the iron-lined alloy cylinders running a 9.2:1 compression ratio, while a 280-watt alternator at the front of the engine ran the electrics. Power was transferred through the automotive-style twin-disc dry clutch to a 5-speed gearbox with shaft final drive, the final drive casing forming the right side swingarm tube. Three-position preload adjustable shock absorbers located the swingarm to the frame.

Acquired from Mecum auctions in January 2020 this motorcycle appeared to be in good condition and had just 'been fully serviced' . Well that turned out to be nonsense. We uncovered a number of small issues nothing too terrible but still several days work to get right and as at June 2020 we are now finalising the braking system (with new hoses) and doing some minor fettling. NOW COMPLETED. The motorcycle is now being UK registered.

2002 Moto Guzzi California EV 80th Anniversary model, very low mileage in as new condition. There are many bikes advertised on Car and Classic that claim to be rare but were in fact in plentiful supply when new - this however, truly is a rare bike. There were only 300 made and sold worldwide in 2002 to celebrate Guzzi'
