1983 Moto Guzzi V65 from United States of America


I'd definitely buy another one


Kickstand broke off. Center stand was okay.

Bolts holding exhaust pipes were funky, but worked.

General Comments:

This is a nice, comfortable, mid-weight street cruiser. Perfect for scooting around back roads on two hundred mile junkets. It was a good size for a 6'2 rider, more comfortable than bigger engined bikes I've ridden due to its height and generous seating, and much better for a big rider than a Honda CX-650 of the same year (which seems like a mini-bike compared to the Guzzi). Despite its ample size, it was fairly light and nimble enough in traffic.

I bought it for $1700, and sold it for a decent profit, but I wish I'd kept it. It was a reliable, trustworthy machine that seemed to be bullet-proof.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
