This book tells the complete history of Moto Guzzi. From Carlo Guzzi’s Tipo GP of 1920, to the MGX-21 Flying Fortress nearly 100 years later, every Moto Guzzi has been unique and charismatic. But the road hasn't always been smooth and Moto Guzzi has survived many ups and downs.
The second volume deals with the various aspects of the life linked to the initiatives promoted by the factory since the early years: the various disciplines of the Moto Guzzi Group, the different proposals for leisure, the many construction projects that have changed the face of Mandello, the social, health and cultural issues, the summer camps for employees' children, interventions in support of large families or in difficulty. The book was made possible thanks to the contribution of many families, former employees, Italian and foreign guzzisti who provided materials and testimonials.
Lino Tonti managed to take the large V7 Moto Guzzi touring engine and create a spectacular sporting motorcycle, the V7 Sport, in 1971. This remarkable machine evolved into the stylistic 850 Le Mans, another landmark Italian motorcycle. Here is a year by year account of development and specification changes of a great series of motorcycles.
