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.

Hi Adam
It's NBS (N for Nigel) and if the camera had gone inside my less than pristine T3 is hidden away awaiting work - lots.
If you're ever over this way we ought to have a ride out there - a good article for your mag resides in rural Staffordshire.

Slip of the keyboard, have changed it to NBS. I'm not often in Staffordshire but would liek to drop by if I was! I need some valve guides sorting, maybe that'd be a reason..
