FS: 1993 Moto Guzzi Daytona 1000 – ZGUKABKAXPM200004 – 16,825 miles – $12,500.00

Over the years I have had the pleasure to make many motorcycle friends! Some like me, keep getting older and find it increasingly difficult to be comfortable on dropped bar bikes. One friend in particular is starting to sell off some of his collections. All of his bikes are generally rare hard to find models. This is one of  the first 3 bikes brought to us to get ready to sell and find good homes for.  We will get this up and going over the next few weeks, happy to answer question and please come see in person.

The owner of this Guzzi Daytona had the opportunity to correspond with the legendary Dr. John who was living in PA, and subsequently purchased a collection of parts he had for sale for a Daytona.  At that time he actually did not own a Daytona but he still bought the collection of parts. He then scoured the country to find this one out of LA with the intention of going racing and putting on the racing bits.  This is a very rare model with an incredible history, it was not an easy bike to find a clean example of.   Current owner has had it for just over 12 years, his plans to build a Superbike never happened, instead, it was parked as it was purchased and the race kit never got uncrated.  In 2014 he had the Moto International go through it and “wake it up” but it has been parked since and we will go through the same process once again before selling.  The bike equipped with an MG Performance stage 2 Termignoni exhaust system and intake kit along with a set of lightweight Dymag wheels.  In 2014 it also had a brand new set of Michelins put on as well.  All original parts including exhaust, wheels, and airbox come with.  This is frame VIN 0004.

 *If the new buyer is interested there is also a full racing kit available for sale separately for this bike.  Full bodywork (x2), Aluminium fuel tank, performance motor internals and a set of one-off 17″ Marchesini wheels, Brembo rotors and much more!  additional information and full detail of parts available upon request, value TBD.    A little exchange with its owner on what’s there in the kit:  Yes aluminum fuel tank, according to John it was made by the panel beaters in the Maserati shop since they were all part of the ‘family’ at that time.  John made the crate to ship the tank in.  Packing slip shows that it was shipped April 5, 2007, I have faring and seat, new 17″ Marchesisi’s (Magnesium), there are two cranks, one stroker one not.  And there are two sets of rods, Pankel Ti rods and a new set of Carrillo rods that are longer which presumably go with the stroker crank.  The Carillo’s were inside a Crower box hence my confusion.  Additionally a Koni shock with two different springs, the Transkontinental clutch assembly with spare disc and lighter pressure plate.  Close ratio tranny.  Brembo rotors and calipers.  Subframe assembly.  And a pair of hubs for spoked wheels..

Here is a more about the Daytona 1000

A dentist turned Moto Guzzi racer, Dr. John Wittner won several titles in the mid-1980’s, and lent his hard-earned expertise to the factory during the development of the 1000cc Daytona.  Along with some consulting from Raceco ( an English racing tuner that had worked on the exciting Daytona racing prototype ),  the collaboration produced the 4-valve 992cc V-twin along with a new frame design and resulted in the Daytona 1000.

But by the early 1990s the Italians were back on top or at least competing with the Japanese on equal terms for performance and price. 1000. For several years Moto Guzzi was rumored to have a new four-valve 1000cc V-twin superbike ready to go into production, and it finally appeared on the streets in 1993. The Daytona 1000 is a true Moto Guzzi in that it is long, low and stable, yet it has a very modern and powerful engine. The 1000cc V-twin producing a healthy 721b/ft of torque at 6000rpm. Okay, so that’s not going to give GSX-R1100 owners too many sleepless nights, but for a top speed of 145mph, not bad for an air-cooled twin. Interestingly, the 1000 Daytona still has the traditional Moto Guzzi shaft drive, which is unusual for a sportsbike. But Moto Guzzi also emp multi-adjustable Koni monoshock at the rear (compressed by cantilever linkage rather than a rising-rate arrangement), and a pair of Marzocchi telescopic front forks with rebound damping adjustment superbikes from Japan.

Riding the Daytona is a curious experience. It’s incredibly fast for a Moto Guzzi, it handles surprisingly well for a Moto Guzzi and yet com new. But it is the styling and traditional feel, combined with modern performance and handling, that makes the Daytona such an exceptional m that was both beautiful, stylish, totally individual, and yet which retained all that was special and desirable about the marque.
