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
I wanted to say 'Thank you' for your excellent site, it looks great and the magazine articles in particular are a fantastic resource that it is generous of you to share.

So I am still looking for coments about a frame and engine number begining with a 7 NOT a 1 Both numbers match, both start with a clear 7 and I am the orginal owner of this 1978/850 LeMans. Anyone know anything about this anomaly?????
I know its an old thread but my mk1 lemans frame no starts with a (VE) 7 not a 1, Mike Lacey dating officer of the Moto Guzzi Club GB could not throw much light on this other than guessing a worker stamping the frame picked up a 7 instead of a 1 but I have since heard of a Canadian MK1 frame no starting with a 7 but got no answer to my enquiry.
Hello George, if your LeMans is registered in the United States, it's registered using the engine number and not frame number that Moto Guzzi stamped on the head stock.
For instance, my 76' LeMans is registered in California as 70*** which is a variation of the number stamped on the engine which is 070***.
Partially obscured by the registration plate riveted to the head stock is the factory stamped frame number VE11***.
Why the U.S. importer used engine numbers instead of frame numbers for DMV registration is a debated issue even today.
Hope this helps.
There is a Mk1 currently for sale here in Australia and it looks ok. It has engine no. VF 071947. I will try and add a link, I hope it works.
