Wee Red Machine

Here's a nice little bike that a friend has just bought for his wife.

It’s a 31 years old Moto Guzzi V50, but take a look at the (genuine) mileage.

He reckons that it needs a few jobs doing and the cosmetics sorting, but is very happy with his purchase, and so is the wife.


  1. Very nice! Good to see older bikes being kept in good condition and more importantly, USED. Can't stand the 'too good to be used' mentality, bikes are for riding.
    Hope it works out well and she really enjoys it.

  2. That looks a nice 'un.

    Let 'em know that if it feels a bit strange to ride then it can take time to get used to inline crank and shaft drive - but do persevere, they can be such rewarding bikes.

    ng:) who's owned 4 small blocks - and is hankering after another.

  3. I really like the look of the V50. Considered by many as probably the best of the small Guzzis. But I've too many bikes as it is (so I'm told).
