I have just recently begun the restoration and rebuild of a 1979 850 Le Mans Mk2. I have discovered that the original paint colour was that cobalt blue shade. Can anyone help with a paint name and paint code, or an automotive match?
The blue is the same as a 1976 BMW R100 RS
Very happy to be an owner/rider of a 1976 Moto Guzzi Le Mans that I imported earlier this year to the UK. It was previously owned by an elderly gentleman in Parma who prized it among his modest collection. Apart from the replacement seat, it's in mostly original finish which makes it quite a find, I think. Whilst retaining the original KPH speedometer, I have fitted a NOS MPH version. I love how this machine fits together. It's so easy to maintain, yet it feels like a solid piece of engineering. I trailed it for only 5 miles, very recently, after finalising all the documentation making it road legal. It's a memorable ride for all the best reasons! I love this dedicated site to this machine. Thanks.
Proud original owner of a 1978 Le Mans hoping to find the color code for this bike. Would like to repaint my red bike as close to original as possible.
I just bought a le mans from 1978 and was wondering whether some one can help me as i am planning to use my bike for longer trips would welcome suggestion how to store luggage eg any suggestions for bags systems?
Oxford saddlebags (X50) perhaps?
Very nice site! I appreciate the detailed reviews and riding reports from owners, as well as the videos. (No possessive apostrophe, by the way, for the plural).
Thanks for all you do here! --Thom
