Any NE Guzzi Fans?

Are any of you New England Alfa owners also fans of Moto Guzzis? I would love to get an older Guzzi, especially a Monza 500. Had a small Guzzi as a kid and never quite got it out of my system.

I've owned a number of Guzzis including a V-50 Monza, V-50 & V-65SP but my preference was the bigger twins. The small Guzzis didn't seem to be put together as well & had a number of transmission issues. The V-50 Monza's weakest link were the head gaskets which tended to let go frequently.

Thanks for the responses, guys, it's been a nutso schedule at work and home lately and I'm only just now catching up on the board. How ironic that the Monza would blow head gaskets--a perfect match for a Spider!
