    Help With 750 SEI restoration

    I'm new to the forum and also a proud new owner of 2 1975 750 Sei. I'm starting a restoration on one of them this weekend and I need some help locating parts and paint codes. Does anyone know of a place that sells replacement parts for these bikes in the U.S? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum, and look forward to some photo's mate,

    There's a few on here with some of the more Classic bikes, although not USA based, but I'm sure they'll advise you,

    Don't forget the photo's !

    Hi Shamrock,
    The American spares for the 750 were mostly held by Cosmopolitan motors. Unfortunately Vintage Cosmo sold most of there multi cylinder parts to a collector who doesn't seem to want to do anything with them. Your best bet is Guzzi dealers etc for common cycle parts and Ebay or European suppliers for the specific stuff. See the sticky post at the top of this discussion area. The Yahoo groups are quite active with regular chat from Joe Purshock from Cosmo and many others from all around the world. I think a chap call Tracy Belcastro has one of the biggest collections of De Tomaso era Benellis in the states.

    Were your bikes the US barn find recently advertised on the net?

    Cheers

    Chris

    Chris,

    Thanks for the info. I tried looking through Ebay but I can't seem to find anything on them except for fork seals and magazines. Yes these are the bikes that were posted on the net. Phil

    Yes, I was tempted by those machines but shipping them was going to be hard and I've too many other projects as it is.

    There's a chap on ebay.it advertising 750 exhausts for 550EU which is a true bargain.

    I Think I may have paid too much for those bikes.

    I'm having trouble removing the clutch cover. Would you happen to know how to remove the generator rotor?

    No problem with the rotors. They are the same as BMWs. Take the bolt out of the centre and insert a HARD 1/4 inch diameter 2 inch long spacer made from a hardened stud. Re insert the bolt and tighten.

    The 750 is just very expensive these days... there is no way around it. They cost in the region of 10,000USD here in the UK. I haven't seen one for sale for ages but we have at least 62 of them in the club.
