THE 1975 850 MOTO GUZZI LE MANS is a sports motorcycle first shown at the Milan motorcycle show in November 1975, with sales beginning in 1976. It was named after the 24-hour motorcycle endurance race at Le Mans in France. The Le Mans 850 was developed from the 53 hp V7 Sport model of 1971, but with power increased to 71 hp. The first run of the Series 1, had a round CEV taillight and continued until at least September 1976, The Series 2 had a De Tomaso-designed rectangular taillight, a modified rear mudguard, black fork sliders and a more generous dual seat. The seat was a one-piece item of injection-moulded foam. Most Le Mans 850 bikes were red and black, but a few were metallic in ‘Ice Blue’ and even fewer were white!
