Perfomance may be an issue, mine seems in good shape but is not happy at much over 80kmph/50mphand while Ive not had it long, its a loveable quirky old tug.

Ex Italian Army 1972, demobbed 2002. Imported U.K 2005. Leg shields/crash bars yes, faring no. Two single seats, exhaust condition fair, no dynastart, Service history.
Slow and heavy maybe…but Graham Hemshalls ‘Black Bomber’ is a corker…and theres a man who knows his Guzzi singles…guykate2014-08-03 16:56:19
MOTO GUZZI SUPER ALCE 500 in holland on german ebay, he says it is on dutch papers, not exactly a Nuovo Falcone but a decent looking single that looks in good condition for the age and price.
That is something else! It looks like a bag of Meccano thrown at an engine!
perhaps an ALCE just has to many parts, I like it but I am not sure why, it is not quick or designed with style.
bit like me then ----
I like it too, maybe if it was just a bit closer to home…
