Started up for the first time in 37 years
Our friend Mark has been in touch with us the last few months about an unused, original and untouched 1975 Moto Guzzi T3 850 that he discovered languishing in a private collection in Switzerland. He's now brought it over, and had Guzzi experts NBS recommission it to running order. Best thing is, he's left it exactly as is - many people obsessed with shiny polished motorcycles would be tempted to strip it right down and restore it - and he'll enjoy a Guzzi that has barely rolled its wheels since leaving the factory at Mandello in 1975. The T3 is an excellent rider's bike, and there are aren't many standard ones left, let alone in this sort of condition, AND in the rarer 'rosso salmone' paint.
