Upcoming projects include a rare 1930 French-made New Map; an upscale single cylinder roadster for the affluent. Info hard to come by. Get the September 2019 issue of RealClassic to read my review of the R75/5 BMW – a jewel among the vintage crowd. Enough info has been collected to write a Moto Guzzi ‘T-series’ report, with enough leftover to write another. Among the best is the V1000 G5, introduced for 1979 and shown here in its earlist guise, with low bars, tachometer, standard panniers and footpeg controls. Styling is identical to the Convert Automatic. Ride a classic? Read RealClassic!
“I do, and perhaps always have seen the appeal in the dresser’s look or sound, but it could be so much better. Measured against typical standards of 1970s performance and function the FLH fails, but when one understands the difference between riding a motorcycle and riding a Seventy-Four, it all becomes clear. For those wishing to travel in the cradle of another time, the Electra Glide has no equal.” Nolan Woodbury, RealClassic magazine 2017.
