Guzzi Special

I came across this when going through my old photo's the other week Volume 1-  issue number 5 of a 1989 magazine called Silver Machine - the heart and soul of motorcycling. I have no idea as to to how successful this mag was,but this Guzzi looks pretty purposeful. Built by the then 'Guzzi Overland' owner Martin Harvey.
Based on a early Lemans using  a 850T rear drum hub/bevel box and V7Sport toolboxes and some mild tuning-gas flowing etc with a Dr John 2 into 1 exhaust and a supertrapp silencer. 
I WONDER WHERE IT IS NOW? I have a vague idea that when the shop closed many years ago the owner moved to Australia.


  1. Martin moved to Australia and still has the bike.

  2. Andrew, Thanks for the info and glad to hear that the bike..................and owner are still around !
