Found on eBay: 1982 Moto Guzz SP1000

This week's eBay find is something we didn't think we'd ever see: A 1-mile, original-condition Moto Guzzi SP1000. According to the auction, this bike has never been started.

The story goes that the current owner from the son of a Moto Guzzi/BMW dealer in Mexico, Mo. The bike was uncrated back in 1982, put together, and rolled out to the showroom floor and never sold. It comees with the original battery that has never had acid in it. The bike has oil in it, but has never had gas in it either. The bike is currently in St. Louis, and though the seller states that it's in need of a good cleaning (and that it has some minor pitting on the mufflers from sitting), it looks to be quite original and in very nice shape.

The bike will be sold not running, so if you plan to buy the bike and use it, it would require a full service before riding it. Still, it's a very unusual piece, and one we'd love to see someone buy, service and enjoy.
