It reminded me of the packing they did on Guy Martin's Enfield to put it on the train in India

Going to edit the title for this thread? It's a 'T', right?

Hi Barry,

If you could please edit the title, I tried to but couldn't finds where to do it.

It is indeed an 850T

If you want to change the title, just go to your first post, click on edit under post options, then you will see the title at the top of the box and you can edit it.

Hi

I have just purchased and received yesterday from Italy a Guzzi 850 T in Brown as well, looks like i have a similar amount of work as you.
I too am going to repaint mine but was looking at the colour options.
I looked at the Red (favourite choice) i understand it to be Fiat Vivid Red code 152) but was surprised it isnt a metallic finish ie solid. Also the gold lines i also thought they were gold foil or similar.

Very keen to see  how your bike progresses as being in near the same condition at the same time.

Good Luck

I haven't actually started stripping  mine as yet (bloody Aprilia being a PITA and work getting the way) but will be on it very soon.

I think I have settled on the Fiat vivid Red (152) for mine.

Get a thread started on your project and we can compare notes as we go.

Yes i will do that, going to start my strip down this weekend, hoping as it runs seemingly fine to just remove what is needed and leave the rest alone, just finishing a Bimota resto and do not want a garage full of parts again.
But time will tell.
