This bike should have been mine. In 2016 it was posted for sale on Craigslist from the original owner in Cape Cod with 3,300 miles on the clock, I was the second call. This will not be sold to just anyone, and I will not entertain any low offers as I will buy it and happily tick the miles over into my golden Guzzi old age. I own a ‘76, if I did not I’d buy this (and I still may)— but I am currently in a committed relationship with the first series LeMans.

My friend, the current owner really took care of her and only added 1,193 more miles to her. If you are looking at a 2 owner completely documented Lemans 1, THIS IS IT!

Notice the orange reflective paint is completely intact on the bikini fairing, the seat is perfect, complete tool kit, owners manual, and a copy of the first title from Cape Cod with the original purchase date of 1978. This is a collectors bike that you SHOULD ride. It also has the earlier and best Lafranconi Competizione pipes.
