2200 Mile Tutto Terreno: 1986 Moto Guzzi V65 TT

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1986 Moto Guzzi V65 TT or Tutto Terreno (all-terrain) (serial ZGUPVAPGXGM100003) is a rare find in the US, where only a few dozen are believed to have been sold. An early dual-purpose bike, limited suspension travel and a small fuel tank ultimately limited its potential as a rugged overlander, but the torquey, proven V65 V-twin, a light ~400 pound curb weight, and good looks means they’re still worthy of attention today. This one sounds to be in very good, all-original condition with 2,200 miles. Find it here on eBay in McDonald, Pennsylvania with reserve not met.

Says the seller: “all original including the tires. I bought it in 2009 from the 2nd owner from Washington State, title is clear and open and signed by  previous owner. No dings or dents just two small hairline scratches on the tank and one tab missing on one side cover. Bike is rare, not many shipped to USA, I was told 24.”

Here’s a look at the 650cc V-twin, mounted in typical Guzzi fashion with the crank lining up for a straight shot through the 5-speed gearbox and shaft drive.

Check out that weird exhaust routing, as well as what looks like very clean paint finish and bare metal components.

Again from the ad: “starts easy, runs tight and strong, some hesitation until 3000 RPM then really pulls hard. Bike handles like a dream. Nice 9 out 10 bike that’s been well taken care of. Nice seat no rips. New battery, tank clean inside, some paint missing off fuel cap, fork covers perfect. A nice affordable collectible piece that draws a crowd.”
