Post Sale Update: This Guzzi sold for $6,600 after 15 bids on eBay in Midlothian, Texas on eBay.

The Moto Guzzi Le Mans 1000 SE (Special Edition) was a limited run of motorcycles based on the Series II Le Mans 1000. Built in honor of the 20th anniversary of the release of the V7, it has evolved into a collector’s bike particularly desired by Guzzistas. Only 100 examples of the Moto Guzzi Le Mans 1000 SE made it to the United States. Of however many still remain, plenty are in museums and private collections, so a purchasing opportunity like this can be quite rare.

All of the Special Editions had the red and white paint scheme, with distinctive aspects including a red seat, and red wheels. Cosmetic differences were many, though the mechanical differences were few. Engines were untouched, though the acceleration was boosted as the transmissions were geared closer than the standard Le Mans.

This example (VIN: ZGUVVAVVXHM100416) has 7,917 miles and it’s rocking the original paint. It recently got new tires, battery, carb diaphragms, K&N air filter, petcocks, and an oil change. The seller acquired it two years ago but “it is a little too powerful” for him so he’s letting it go with a Texas title that’s “in the mail.”
