Default 96' NTX 750 Guzzi

I recently did a swap with a very good friend of mine for this NTX 750. Ex Italian police. It's a lovely bike to ride! Handles really well and is seriously smooth! Just have to get rid of the polizia stickers now!

I don't know why but I really like that. Reminds me of a chase scene from a James Bond movie or something. Leave the stickers on it too. Ads to character.

Keep it as is, tis funky. Just dunt go touring in Italy. Get either a white top box or make up a small passenger seat to round it off, like on this one:

Don't confuse yerself with one of the pseudocops, your bike just looks nothing like the Irish/UK cops. No one is going to see your bike and call ye a c*nt for making them slow down. Except for a few Italian immigrants
