It was approximately a 300ml round trip from Bristol plus another 200mls for Adam.
Adam knew that he was buying back his old bike that he'd sold - in bits - back in 2005,but the weird coincidence was that the T3 engine currently in the bike I'd sold to the owner approximately 14 years ago. This didn't actually come to light until we'd all met and introductions made. What a Small Moto Guzzi world we live in !
John who sold Adam the bike has a blog about his current rebuild,plus other stuff, of his V7 Sport which he's owned since 1978 - http://racingrhino.wordpress.com/2014/05/23/retracing-my-steps-part-2/

|We can see the sea !|
Funny how you can still get excited when you see your first glimpse of the sea,
even when, as in my case, you only live 20 - 25 miles from it anyway

the front end doesn't look quite so clever.
