It's amazing how today's posts can bring back such memories.

1972, maybe '73 I bought a 1968 Moto Guzzi 700. Actually, I bought a frame and several boxes of parts. The pistons were stuck in the cylinders so bad that four days of soaking in buckets of solvent wouldn't loosen them. The engine shop busted them out with a chisel and hammer. When they told me they would have to bore the cylinders I said, "Great. Let's get bigger pistons." Moto Guzzi makes a 750 !"

The shop that built car race engines said it wasn't worth it. We sleeved the cylinders.
