Jim Knighten Rebuild - 1974 Moto Guzzi LAPD Eldorado 850

3/21/08 the Eldorado was purchased by Jim Knighten.  Jim initially made some major modifications to this ole bike. 
It is now a Show Stopper ready to be shown in any vintage motorcycle display.  The best part is that Jim still Rides the rubber off this puppy all the same. 

From this when I owned it in 2008
To Jim's Rebuild around April of 2010
Jim and I often ride together and we have become pretty good motorcycle buddies. 
We swapped bikes for a short ride.  He made that ole cop bike as smooth as silk, the throttle was even and light, the shifting was smooth and tight and it just rode like a dream.  Great Job Jim!
Here are a couple shots from some rides we have done. 
What a Beautiful Rebuild Jim did.
