Moto Guzzi 850T5 – 1988
A rare 1980's survivor ! in smart good useable condition. A sales disaster for Guzzi at the
time, but the odd-ball T5 has to be a bike for the retro collector.
This one is original, unrestored, late example (18" rear wheel) in
silver. Don't let the folk-law about the 16" front wheel put you off,
this will be the cheapest route into a big block classic Guzzi !

Amazingly honest bike and actually nice & laid back to ride.
Mechanically very tough as a low compression, small carb, 850. Could be
enjoyed as is (you won't park up next to another one...), convert to a
Mille GT or as a cafe racer etc. donor bike.
