Is this the same model as V65C? 84 Moto Guzzi V 65 II discussion forum:

Is this the same model as V65C?

I recently bought a 1984 V65C (Custom) which is a touring set-up with stock fairing and Guzzi hard bags. Is the II the same model?

The C I bought had about 17k miles on it. Its a little dinged up but its all there and runs like a top. Comfortable seating height (Im 62"). Even the locks on the Guzzi bags work fine! The shifting feels a little loose but is solid enough. Im restoring an older Eldo so I wont bother having this one tuned, Im selling it to finance my project.

Overall I think its a nifty ride. Only problems are a broken sidestand mount which I am fixing, and its a %&#! to get up on the centerstand. There is also a trick involved to unlocking the gas cap which is maddening until you figure it out. (Use the ignition key and press down hard -- at least on my tank.)

Otherwise its a big solid bike which handles nicely and has plenty of torque. I prefer a more classic bike but this one gets plenty of compliments from observers, including some Harley bikers.
