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.

Hi I have a 1978 lemans mk1 series 2. The bike needs retiring as the previous restoration was not done very well. I am looking for photographs under the tank and behind the side panels etc etc to help with installing the new loom and making sure relays, rectifiers etc are all installed in the right locations. Any help / links to photos etc would be much appreciated

Thanks, note I am re wiring the bike ( not retiring it ! - Google auto spell malfunction)

I have all the manuals an am looking for photographs under the tank, behind the side panels and under the seat. This is to help me see where all the relays, volt packs and wiring should be 😊
