    Exactly which MG model has the same fork as the later 750 sei? (Made by Benelli/Guzzi if I recall?)

    I bought a really rough 78 sei and will be bringing it back to life.

    Canuck750 sent me this reply and I went to MG Cyle and found all I needed.

    “The 750 Sei forks are Guzzi items, they take 50cc of ATF, just pull the damper out and fill the tube, the fluid is just to prevent corrosion and not for damping. The dampers are sealed and the factory dampers are junk. Replace with FAC dampers for a Guzzi 850 Lemans (MG Cycle)”.

    Do you need forks or are you rebuilding? From what I recall, MG Cycle had it all.......

    I have not even gotten the bike here yet (it is shipping to me). I know it has been sitting a very long time and pretty rough. Forks appeared to be usable, but of course I will have to inspect tubes etc when I get it.

    thanks!

    I’ll dig through my files and see if I can find the actual part numbers of what I ordered from MG Cycle. It all fit perfectly!

    I have a Benelli 900 Sei and a Moto Guzzi Le Mans 1. The forks appear to be to be the same. When I put a new set of dampers in the Benelli forks a couple of years ago, I ordered Guzzi LM1 items from Stein Dinse. I figured if they didn't fit the Benelli I could still use them in the Guzzi, but they fitted the Benelli's forks OK.

    I think the 900 sei and 750 sei have different length stantions!
