Shaft-Drive V-Twin: 1974 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport

This is from the site Bring a Trailer ( ...

This 1974 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport (chassis DGM9104OM) has been owned by the seller for the last 20 years, during which it’s been fitted with a few subtle upgrades to increase comfort and usability. It’s not mentioned whether the bike is a survivor or has been reconditioned at some point, but visuals suggest it could be the former, with 29k miles on the odometer. A bin of spare parts as well as some originals that have been removed will also be included, though we’d probably leave it as-is. Find it here on eBay in Portland, Oregon with no reserve. Photos are a bit distant so it’s tough to get a detailed read on cosmetics, but everything seems to be pretty good from 10 feet or so. Deep black paint appears to hold a good shine, the seat doesn’t show any rips or fading, while the polished fenders and pipes look good too. A set of BUB mufflers have been fitted and should sound really nice. The original pipes have been retained separately, and will be included in the sale along with other extra parts such as the original bars, fuel petcocks and a set of of head and crossover pipes that were never installed. Unfortunately there are no close-up shots of the 750cc V-twin, but it sounds like it’s in good running condition by the seller’s description. It breathes through twin Dell’Orto carbs fitted with K&N filters, and the original Le Mans-style shift drum has been converted to a more conventional one-down, four-up shift pattern.
