Technical Editor Kevin Cameron’s fond look back at the amazing Moto Guzzi V8 in our June issue got long-time reader Stephen Dane digging deep in his toy box. He sent us these great images along with a nice love letter:
Thank you for your comprehensive article on the Moto Guzzi V8 Grand Prix roadracers. Back in the late 1950s, these racing bikes captured my teenage imagination with their dustbin fairings and wonderfully complex engines.
Your article was a great resolution to my years of fascination with these beautiful machines. Enclosed are some copies of the boxes of dustbin Moto Guzzi models I assembled decades ago and still have in my collection.
I’ve been a fan of Cycle World for the past 50 years—since your first issue. I know you’ll keep up your top-notch journalism and photos for decades more.
