A few weeks ago, I featured a modern Harley with a sidecar and trailer, and the general consensus (understandably) was that you’d be better off with a truck. While that might be true, I still find these combinations interesting – triply so when it’s a classic Italian, the sidecar allows the bike to lean, and everything is painted to match!
With its giant fairing, the SP1000 was obviously designed for touring, and this example (VIN: CGUVGC2EM2118) might be as touring-oriented as it gets. The 1000cc engine pushed out about 75 horsepower, yielding a top speed of 116 miles per hour. The bike weighed 460 pounds dry and according to contemporary reviews, had good handling and a fantastic integrated braking system. For more information, head on over to the Ye Olde Cycle Shoppe for a period review of this bike.
According to the seller, you can disconnect the trailer and sidecar in less than 5 minutes if you want to use the bike as Guzzi intended. It’s got 76,787 miles and “too many extras to list”, inlucding the exhaut, carbs, cylinder head guards, hand warmers, and a larger belly pan. I believe the major additions are a California Friendship I sidecar and California Escapade trailer. Find this massive Moto Guzzi rig for sale in Grand Prairie, Texas with bidding up to $7,100
