I'm thinking about either selling my 79 XT500 or trading her for a 96-98 Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport, if someone has one of those bikes stored away in a shed!

My XT has 4.6k original miles on her, does not smoke, makes no strange noises, and she rides great! The Mikuni TM 36 Flat-Slide carb has given her some extra power, and makes her super easy to fire up on cold or hot engine startups. The only issue she has is being left sitting sometime for 6-8 month without being taken for a ride, which now prompts me to either selling or trading her in for something that I would actually use.

I bought this XT four years ago, for $3.2k. I am the second owner of this bike. Since I bought her, I had the tank and rear fender repainted and also powder coated the entire exhaust, turn signal brackets, brake light bracket, and the engine's skid plate. The XT has less than 100 miles on her new tires, brakes, chain, sprockets, rear shocks (still have originals), new rear luggage rack, installed a new TM 36 Mikuni flat slide carb (still have the original carb too), new filters, engine tuned, new decals, new fork seals, turn signal relay, battery, ...., and I'm sure that I'm forgetting a couple of things. This XT will be listed on eBay, unless she sells before, on June 1st.

Bike is located outside of Raleigh, NC.

I collect 96-98 Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport carb and EFI bikes, so let me know if you have one of those sitting around without using it! I would like to make a full or partial trade!

Please contact me if you have a 1100 Sport for trade, or if you would like to make me an offer to purchase the XT straight up. The cash purchase cost I'm asking for is $4,750.00

What I would consider for a partial or full trade: A silver or black 1100 Sport would be perfect, but blue, red, or yellow will also do!
