More Guzzi Ramblings…

Rally season is now well upon us, and I have already missed one rally this year, but the next one is one I will not miss, the Belgian John Bull rally, a great rally hosted by the Belgian BSA-OC, for British and classic bikes.

This year I intend, well hope to attend on my 73 Guzzi Eldorado, and I am frantically trying to get it ready for the end of the month. I still have a few bits to sort out over the Easter weekend, and then with a fair wind it should be done. We shall see.

Those of you who own, or have owned a loop frame Guzzi, will know what a pain it is to replace the carb to airbox rubber. And after trying unsuccessfully to get it into place time and again, I finally came up with a plan that worked. Actually it worked quite well too. The successful method was to use two hacksaw blades positioned so that the rubber could be slid into place, and held while the carb was put back on, then the blades are pulled carefully out, job done.
