Here is your chance to own a part of Moto Guzzi History, a Engineer's drawing of the famous V7 90° Twin Motor.
This measures an impressive 1,974 mm long × 843 mm wide. It is dated 1964 in the identification panel (bottom right). From research I believe this is the last engine approved by Carlo Guzzi as he past away also in that year.
I believe this to be a rare piece of history from Moto Guzzi. I have tried to find out more about this but there is little information that i could confirm. This could possibly be a workshop drawing / engineers drawing from one of the legendary design people at Moto Guzzi. This may have been brought over here by Ken Kavanagh or Jack Finding but I cannot confirm this. This could be a prototype drawing of this engine before it's release, it is a stiff/heavy paper that could have been from a carbon drawing but I am not 100% of that either.
I have not been able to confirm much about this rare item and would welcome any information offered. It is in excellent condition for it's age there are no rips and the edges are great. It has shading marks from the ink or from carbon ? and a small stain (very minor). This has been stored rolled away in a tube keeping it in such good condition.
