Great article on Paul Harrison's 1967 Moto Guzzi V7 (November/December 2017). The V7 has truly defined Moto Guzzi in the half century following the V7's introduction, and a tip of the hat to Paul for rescuing his from the trash bin of history within the crazy time frame he set for himself. The V7/V700 was produced for a very short time, replaced in 1969 with the heavier and bulkier 750cc Ambassador. It is nice to see another one of the early 700s on the road. I had the pleasure of showing my 1968 V7 (serial number 1526) at the Motorcycle Classics show during the 2016 Bonneville Grand Prix and can attest to the great ride these early V's afford. They are smooth, with a great rumble and an authoritative, not quick, but steady push from that big torque engine.
