Timeless Appearance, Awesome Design
Built in April 1973, Mandello del Lario Italy, this matching numbers (VP-057483) Loop Frame Guzzi Eldorado is fully functional as originally delivered. Compared to Harley-Davidson '74 of that era, the Eldorado came with better handling and a much stronger power-to-weight ratio [64 bHP/600lbs.]. Completely restored, with 532+ break in mile/trials on mid-Ohio byways and self-certified Spring 2024, this clean-titled bike is motorcycle artwork ready to ride.

Invest time with this classic 850 Eldorado and you will be rewarded. Designed for safety, easy access, maintenance and long life, LAPD made it their motorcycle fleet in 1972. With new original tread design Continental 4X4" tires, many reliable cruising miles await.

Made roadworthy by one owner (this, my third Moto Guzzi ground up restoration), over the past 23 years, each part was removed, carefully restored to specs, and replaced as applicable. For example, new wire harness, switches, signals and rear shocks. Support systems are: rebuilt original Del Orto Carbs, Bosch Horn, Starter and Generator and more...

Show chrome tastefully applied, accents unique Moto Guzzi styling and functional details. Original Lafranconi mufflers also show chromed. With 17,110 original plus 532+ 'break-in' miles, new Nikasil Cylinder/Hemi Piston set, new main Formula 1 Bearings, machined crank, heads and valves; this bike is fresh, ready to perform and sparkle for many years.

The 51 year time capsule is a faithful OEM tribute to Moto Guzzi's loop frame marque. Enjoy the experience.
(included items: unrestored original Triple A forward controls, fiberglass Wixom Bags, Case and frame mounts).
