    Yep, took around 1 week from India to me.. covered in light surface rust as it’s been sitting in a deserted factory for 3 weeks but I really had suspicions I was never going to see it..

    That's a lot of bubble wrap you have purchased. You can buy that locally you know.:dance2::dance2::dance2:

    In these current times, that was very quick delivery.

    Yes but Indian bubble wrap comes with no associated demands that if India infects the world with a deadly virus, consequently puts half of it out of work and destroys the world economy, it will refuse to trade bubble wrap with us for wine, education, barley etc if we ask them what the#$%^ happened :) Much preferable bubble wrap methinks in the big picture :)

    It’s going on a 1975 moto guzzi 850 t with a 1977 lemans motor complete with 960 wisico pistons. Building it into a 1974 750 s replica.. the bike is mainly all the parts that were replaced as I built my guzzi race bike over the years.

    To say I was excited when I got home today was an understatement

    I now have a clear title model A frame and I can properly start my build 45DB8875-CB66-4ACF-84E1-58F78D1B4E34.jpeg

    I have one of those somewhere. I didn’t find the pics to be all that good but it has been about 18 months since I used it. The newer one might be better but overall not too bad for the $$$

    Certainly ok for checking on general bore condition which is really all I wanted it for.
    I must dig mine out and have a look inside the Postie bike for a laugh.

    That’s all I got it for to check the bores among other things before I run it, did a comp check and didn’t have much at all, squirted oil down and it come right up, so I’d suggest the rings are stuffed and it’s been sitting a long while.

    will take some pictures with it and post here to see what you guys think of this model, I mean for $25 I can’t complain

    So here are a few picks

    unfortunately the mirror attachment don’t fit inside the plug hole :( so seeing the bore ain’t an option at this point

    but straight down shots work

    although findings aren’t ideal, for research purposes and price the resolution seems pretty good to me

    pics are of my suspect cylinder

    and also inside the tank I bought, checking the weld line for rust

    They are pretty good pics.. there is a lot of Oil in that cylinder.. rings cant be too bad if it is still there after doing your compression test..(at least in that cylinder) I wouldnt have used that much oil for a compression test though.. you dont need much at all.
