I have a 1975 860 GT that I would like to sell.
[THIS BIKE IS SOLD]
I have owned the bike for 25 years although it has been stored since
1987. I have got it going again and it runs fine although some
carburetor adjustment may be needed. (just cleaned the carbs and changed
the oil twice)
The bike has current CALIFORNIA registration (I live in Pleasanton). The
bike has around 12km on the clock and I believe that to be close to
accurate. I changed the original rear tire with about 10km showing, it
still has the original front. The side panels and air cleaners are not
fitted (I always used K&N) but I still have them plus there is a few
parts and two manuals (one is a factory manual in Italian and English).
The engine has definitely never been stripped.
There is some surface rust on the headlamp and rims, but otherwise it
has good original paint.
The registration took a little longer than I
expected. I rode the bike from my home to the CHP to get the numbers
verified, then to the DMV to finalize the process. It was last
registered in Canada.
The bike ran ok, the gearbox is sweet, no vibration (the mirrors
actually clear) but the carbs are still off, and the throttle is stiff
so its a bit of a handful. I needed to keep the revs up to prevent
stalling and the clutch felt a little fierce, but from memory it always
was and just takes a little getting used to. I haven't ridden the thing
for so long. Pulls well pretty of power, and goes round corners as
though its on rails. The frame is definitely straight.
When I got back from the CHP I notice the front fork oil seal had gone.
I have new replacement seals that are included in the spares.
When I originally purchased the bike I changed the gearing (to give a
higher gear). I have the original sprockets.
The original front tire has cracks and needs replacing. The back one
All the gas pipes also need to be replaced.
I fitted new mufflers just after I took it off the road in 1987.
The other thing that I can think of is the front throttle control. The
cover over the plate that holds the cable in is missing (was when I
bought the bike)
There is a limited amount of spares that come with the bike mainly oil
filters. Check out the photos above.
