Moto Guzzi V7 Sport - Jack Findlay Replica

Words supplied by the seller:

I am proposing to sell my Moto Guzzi V7 Sport race bike which is currently eligible for the pre-72 classes in both the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club and British Historic Racing.


This also means that it is eligible for classic racing with other clubs, e.g. Aintree MCC, Wirral 100, Crewe and South Cheshire MCC.


It also runs in the BHR BEARS class in its current form. However, I have all the components for an 1100 cc square barrel engine which means that it would in effect become a Le Mans. Round barrel engines can’t easily be taken beyond 950cc, but the BEARS class is eligible for bikes up to 1986 so making a Mark III Le Mans eligible.


The engine has been developed to give very useable power and the problems of racing big block Guzzis, i.e. oil flow to the big ends, have been eliminated. It has a high capacity oil pump, large oil separator, sump extension and Windage Plate. Equally the crank case has a bespoke strengthening plate to eliminate possible flexing/cracking 

Similarly the ignition is a light triggered system by Volke Sachse and has proven to be ultra reliable.


The frame and steering geometry have also been developed with a lightweight copy of the Tonti frame. It is very stable and is excellent in wet conditions.




For both bike and new engine project, please see specs below.




This is a fast track bike that will put a very big grin on your face when you hook a series of good laps.


At 156 kgs it is light for a large block Guzzi, but it is a big bike and you’ll need to be fit to get the best from it. Approaching 60 with dodgy knees and back, it is becoming time for me to down size to the 500 class, hence why I’m looking to sell.




I am looking for £8,500 for the bike with round barrel engine and £2,500 for the engine components (less than cost); however I would look at sensible offers to sell both together.
