Scottish Motorcycle Show - Italians

Some of the interesting Italian classics at the show.

Tour in style - a Moto Guzzi V7 850GT

Moto Guzzi Falcone 500

Moto Guzzi V50 Monza

A new one on me - a Guzzi 400GTS - the engine is distinctly Honda

Guzzi 250TS two stroke twin

Ducati Pantah

Moto Morini

Laverda 3C - note Brembo four pot caliper conversion

What a look! a gorgeous MV Agusta Monza

Harley Davidson, Italian? - a SS125 made by Aermacchi


  1. Sure some nice looking bikes there. Good to see them in such good shape.

    We don't often see Laverdas. One of our friends just sold his and it was the only one I know of around these parts.

    1. Not that common here but you do see the odd one. Big brutal bikes. In the mid-70's the Jota (the tuned version of the 3C) was the fastest bike around. Tricky to keep one going nowadays I image.

  2. Love the Moto Guzzi Falcone 500. One of my friends have one and the engine ticks over so slowly you would think it would stall. That big flywheel just keeps it going!

    1. The external flywheel etc make this bike look ancient but it's the same age as me. (So ancient when!)
