This 1973 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport is an Italian import that was acquired by the seller nine years ago and shows 67k kilometers (~42k miles). Power is from a 748cc V-twin with a 5-speed transmission and shaft drive. The bike has been ridden approximately 20k kilometers (~12k miles) under current ownership as well as receiving recent valve, ignition timing, and carburetor adjustments. This V7 Sport is offered by the selling dealer in Indiana with owner’s and parts manuals as well as a clean California title. Designed by Lino Tonti, the V7 Sport utilized a modified version of the V7 engine in a lighter triangulated frame. This example is finished in dark red and wears frame-mounted crash bars, a Moto Guzzi 750S seat, and reproduction Lafranconi mufflers. The seller mentions discoloration of the header pipes and a minor dent in the stainless front fender. Telescopic forks feature double twin leading-shoe brakes and adjustable “Swan Neck” clip-on handlebars. Borrani wire wheels wear older 18″ tires which will require replacement. No mirrors are provided. Controls and instrumentation are shown up close in the gallery below. Veglia instrumentation includes a km/h speedometer and a 5-digit odometer showing 67k kilometers (~42k miles). The 748cc OHV 90-degree V-twin features 30mm Dell’Orto carburetors and produced 70 horsepower in stock form. Power is transferred through a 5-speed transmission and shaft drive. The carburetors were recently cleaned, and the valves and timing adjusted. Copies of a rider’s handbook and parts catalogue are included in the sale. The bike has been generally maintained as part of the seller’s collection, and service records are unavailable. A start-up and walk-around video is provided above. The seller’s collection is operated under a dealer license, and the bike comes with a California title to be transferred to its new owner.
