For sale Moto Guzzi V50 Monza (B 1983)


For sale Moto Guzzi V50 Monza 1982 silver



When De Tomaso took over Moto Guzzi in 1973, he brought over his own views on how the firm should act in order to avoid the financial dead end. Noticing that the previous management was stuck in producing only big twins with increased manufacturing cost, he instructs Lino Tonti (the firm's very capable chief engineer) to develop and produce smaller capacity twinsin order to cover that gap in the market, emphasizing in reducing costs through new production methods and automations, available at the Innocenti factory, also owned by the group. This way, the V50 emerged in 1975 with small production capacity until 1979,

and with full capacity after that. Despite the split crankcase, gearbox mounted swingarm, heron type combustion chamber etc, costs were not low enough to match the competition from Far East, therefore although its handling, brakes, low weight, reliability were positively received, it didn't achieve the sales volume intended. In 1981 the Monza version was launched, with body similar to the bigger Le Mans of the era.
Today it is one of the easiest to use, timeless and economical choices for entering the classic Moto Guzzi world.

A few words about the motorcycle on sale

A friend found this silver Monza in a scrap yard outside Athens in very good condition but left alone for many years. He bought it with the intention to convert it to café-racer. After a year of unsuccessful efforts and while he dismantled it to pieces he sold it again.

The “rescue” started immediately and during the restoration phases we found out that it was really in new condition when stopped being used. All plastics where intact, the electrics, the harness was soft and in top condition, the same was the engine and the other mechanical parts.

When finished after some months and returned back to the street for a test ride, it had an “as new” feeling. It is smooth and silent, also thanks to the new, Bitubo front shock absorbers and the rare to find, new original “Silentium” set of silencers that were used.

It is an excellent Moto Guzzi small block, totally original which drives perfectly.
