As 1984 wrapped up, Moto Guzzi introduced the fourth generation of their iconic Le Mans with a bigger motor, Lario-inspired styling, and a 16″ front wheel.

The 978cc V-Twin engine produced 73 horsepower and was capable of 50 miles per gallon.

This Le Mans (VIN: ZGUVVAVV46M100152, Engine # VV 012557) is currently located in Woodland Hills, California and it comes with extra keys. It is offered with a clean CA title, and the registration is current until October 24th, 2020.

The odometer shows 20,434 miles.

It is equipped with some period-correct modifications, including a 2-into-1 exhaust.

Raask rear sets.

Cylinder head protection.

Deep sump oil pan.

Per the seller, this Guzzi does not leak or smoke and it starts from cold at a tap of a starter button. All of the lights work, however the head light is always in high beam mode.

The carburetors (which have pod filters) “are jetted correctly, pulls strong with no hesitation.”

“The tires have tread on them but should be replaced if the new owner intends to do spirited riding in the canyons. Brakes have been de-linked, front brake lever operates both front calipers. I hardly ever use rear brake and the rear brake works ok, but may be due for pad replacement.”

The seller also notes that “cosmetically, this Guzzi is very solid. The fairing is in very good shape as is the seat. Front turn signals are an aftermarket affair but can easily be swapped back to stock units. The front fork gaiters are intact but are beginning to dry crack.”

There are “several minor scuffs but nothing of concern for a 34-year-old motorcycle.”
