Thanks to Brian Wood and Charlie Mullendore of Antietam Classic Cycle for sending me this information.

This throttle was used some Moto Guzzi 850 GT, 850 GT California, Eldorado, 850 California Police models, particularly those manufactured in 1974. Brian Wood informed me that this throttle was used on his 1973 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport. The throttle has commonly been referred to as the no name throttle because there are no identifying marks on it. The throttle was made by Magura and was also used on the 1967 to 1969 Puch 250.
