Hi Jan

Thanks for your informative response.I have contacted the previous owner of my bike in New Zealand (second owner) he was very surprised when I asked if he was aware of incorrect engine number for a MK1.
I have the original rego papers that have these number,from the UK were bike was first registered .
Do you think some MK1 bikes did have VF engine numbers.
Great to hear your responce, it has been interesting looking for information .
I will look up the Falloons book
Cheers

Hi I have a Lemans mk1. chassis number VE 12086 engine number VF 070847
.bike first registered in UK in 1976.
I have been told all MK1 engine numbers start with VE so could you please advise me if there was some MK 1 with theVF or what motor I have.
It is a round case heads and all components match a MK 1.
Any advise would be much appreciated
Cheers

Hi Steve,

According to Ian Falloons Moto Guzzi Sport & Le Mans Bible chassis number VE 12086 belongs to a first series 850 Le Mans (page 62) and engine number VF 070847 to a 850 Le Mans III (page 86).

The information about the engine numbers is to my opinion not right. The chassis number of my 850 Le Mans comes very close to yours and I also have a VF engine number. It is absolutely sure that the chassis and engine are not separated in the past.

You can find a link to Ian Falloons book on the homepage (third one).

Kinds regards,

Jan

Beste Jan,

Ik had het gisteren al tegen je gezegd, nu nogmaals. Erg leuk dat je deze meeting hebt georganiseerd. Jammer dat ik met een lekke band moest afhaken. Als er voldoende animo voor is zou ik meer dan eens per jaar willen afspreken (eventueel met alleen LM rijders)

Vriendelijke groeten, Gaspard

Lijkt me een goed idee. Misschien dat anderen ook ideeën hebben. Laat het weten in het gastenboek of via de contact pagina.

Groeten,

Jan

Sinds kort Leman 1983. Wil er deze zomer mee rijden. Ik vond ze vroeger al mooi. Hopelijk gaat het bevallen.

Jan mooie site!!!! Vooral de foto van een blauwe Le Mans alleen voor de Moto Guzzi poort bij het 90 jarig bestaan is zeer fraai en verdient eigenlijk een prijs voor de meest fotogenieke foto van 2011.


Ciao

Keek al 25 jaar jaloers naar mijn vriend zijn Le Mans 1. Sinds vorig jaar is hij van mij!! Kostte me een Laverda SF, maar.....ik ben er nog lang niet op uitgekeken. Kom zeker een keer naar de Guzzi Sportief dag. Ga zo door met de site, mijn complimenten hoor Jan.
