Wow that is neat stuff! I had a pal that had a Moto-Guzzi sportbike and I got to ride it a few times, they accelerated very well, smoother than my Ninja, and they did not pull as much to the side (due to the crankshaft) as you would think.

Thank you for the welcomed comment and story.
I have ridden many different motorcycles, but not a GUZZI.
I was wondering about the engine torque but it has to be a balanced Motor in the configuration.
I hope to hear from you again and talk all things motorcycles.
Thanks.

Looks like your having a good time.
Thank you very much for the welcomed comment.
Absolutely having fun with new project.
It has be about 10 months since last making models.
My recent illness stopped me in my tracks doing so.
I have notice that getting back into it has calmed me and great therapy for health rehabilitation.
I hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks.

Because of engine placement the Guzzi is shaft drive as opposed to chain, so yes much smoother, but my few rides on one did not have the torque steer that I expected

for a few years I enjoyed owning and swapping a myriad of odd bikes, starting with a Kawasaki 454 LTD, and then a series of bikes, like an Intruder, a Honda Interceptor, dry-clutch GSXR-750 among others

Thank you for the information and a great line-up of bikes to ride.
