850-T Interceptor

Here's my new (to me) Moto Guzzi 850-T. 1975. Pre-oil filter. Paid too much for it, but it seems in good shape. So far I've installed a new battery, new tires, changed the fluids, cleaned out the carbs (and put bigger mains in), checked the valves, put on a new exhaust and installed several relays to get the lights brighter and horn louder. Guzzi routed all the power so it was going through the various switches (which were old) and this was causing power drops. Same for the ignition - all the power ran through the ign. key cylinder. Stupid. Plus mine was flaky so sometimes it'd just cut out the power. Now I've got a new cylinder + it's just used to signal a relay to open the gates. Mo' power! I also put a new master cylinder on there - the original felt like there was a pound of grit in there, and the brakes felt like wood (possibly an effect of the prev. owner putting a second disk on it?). Oh, and I added a kill switch. Previous owner removed the kill switch? Huh.





Chinese Zodiac - Rabbit

Occupying the 4th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Rabbit symbolizes such character traits as creativity, compassion, and sensitivity. Rabbits are friendly, outgoing and prefer the company of others. Rabbits believe strongly in friends and family and lacking such bonds can lead to emotional issues.

Classy, sophisticated, expressive, well-mannered and stylish, those born under the Sign of the Rabbit enjoy leaning about cultural issues and learning about people from other countries.

Wood Rabbits – Years 1915 and 1975

Wood Rabbits occupy their time doing for others; always feeling the need to make others content. This generosity is easy for others to take advantage of and sometimes Water Rabbits don’t even realize is happening.
