Sure, why not call it that. Clubman bars, USD forks, high compression piston, sport cam....luggage rack.

Bought this up a couple months ago and picked it up at Barber. Been looking for an old Guzzi for a while. Starts and runs good but smokes a bit. Decided to look at the top end and found a stuck oil ring and the valves a bit loose in the guides. Not exactly the easiest thing to find parts for but they are out there.

1949 Moto Guzzi Airone Sport

That's pretty nifty right there.

Just needs bar end mirrors and a bum-stop tail sticking up in the air.

If you look close it has a bar end mirror. An old period correct Stadium. It was on it when I got it.

Nice score. There is a similar restored one that putts around the neighborhood on sunny days. Few years newer I think. Love that mag and the flywheel hanging out in the breeze.

No plans to restore. Just a solid rider hopefully and try to preserve the patina. I wish it was a 500 Falcone but those things are priced through the roof. The 250 will be just fine.
