I'm looking for advice on bringing back to life a bike that has sat for at least 10 years. While I have no intention of letting my 2007 SuperGlide go, I am considering restoring this 1980 Moto Guzzi V 1000 SP. Price is right, free, as the guy is moving out of state and doesn't want to pay the moving cost when he knows he will not get around to restoring it for years, if ever. He is moving his current ride, a Victory C92. The Goose has been outside for the last fIve years or so, stored in the Arizona desert. The covering tarp has rotted away, the seat is shot, paint on the full fairing is faded, tires are junk. I would anticipate replacing all rubber components, bearings, cables, windshield, battery, some wiring, brake components; essentially all exterior expendable parts. The tranny was gone through and rebuilt about three years ago and supposedly the engine was done earlier (don't know to what extent). Instruments supposedly all work. Carbs would need rebuilding as would the front forks. Brake rotors are rusty. No tank dents but don't know about any inside rust or fuel residue. It does come with all the manuals and possibly all the receipts. I know there have been a lot of Harley's rebuilt from barn finds and other storage situations, so applicable experience is out there. Anything specifically I would need to check, and are there any inherent hidden areas that rear up and demand unreasonable money to fix? Don't want the project to become a Moby Dick, just to get the bike up and reliablel, looking good, and either keep as a second bike or sell. I can do a lot of the work myself but do expect some outside (i.e. expensive) assistance in a few areas but want to keep those under control. Its a tourer, used originally for some longer trips out of Colorado, and looks stock but the web is full of cafe racer conversions. Don't know if the conversions are a reaction to restoration difficulties or not, or if the owners just wanted a different style. Appreciate any and all advice.
