Italian relics in Africa.

About two weeks after I got my motorcycle I meet an old man who owned a very old Moto Guzzi. I never found out what model it was, and most of the parts were not original. The motorcycle even had the old black Ghana license plates, that no one use anymore. And from the look of it the bike must have been one of the early registered bikes in the country, determining from the plate number AK 5990? Cool machine in a strange place…


  1. Thats a Moto Guzzi Nuovo Falcone 500cc.
    Built from 1969 to 1976. Mostly original.
    I have one here in New Zealand.

  2. Thank you very much for the update Gavin. I appreciate it ;)

    Nice to know that people go way back in the blog stories, and check out all the real old stuff on Cling on for dear life.

    If you have any pictures of your Moto Guzzi I would like to see it. Mail me at

    With regards,
