This is my little Guzzi V50 III/Monza for sale. 11 months MOT & Tax with 33,000 kms on the clock.

Parallel import, however DVLA gave the bike a proper registration (not a Q plate)

The bike went to MotoEuro in West Sussex for engine works and replacment of all bolts back to allen heads as OEM. Also had a new r/h conrod, checked over, serviced and run. The engine had not been fired up by me at all before this. In all cost me £1,100.

Minor problem with front r/h brake, it judders and pumps slightly under light braking, passed the MOT but I think it needs replacing. You can get these either new or used from various sources, budget £30 used - £130 new including pads.

Have many spares including frame parts and exhaust headers.
