After my trip to the Bike Shed Event in London I realised that the Guzzi seemed to using too much oil though it wasn't smoking or seeping out of anywhere.
I of course decided not to pursue trying to sell it,as that could wait until 2014. It was close to the end of the traditional biking year so there was no real urgency.
The engine is mechanically very quiet and with very little wear in the valve guides and decided that new rings should be the answer,which I have done,honing the barrels and fitted new rings.
When the weather has calmed down and I have the time I will get out and about on it putting on a few hundred mile and check oil consumption. When I am happy that all is at it should be,then I will re- advertise it.

riding it around last year
