1934 Moto Guzzi Gt-17 at 2011 Road America Vintage Motorcycle Classic - Classic Italian Motorcycles - Motorcycle Classics
There was plenty of eye candy at the 2011 Road America Vintage Motorcycle Classic in Elkhart Lake, Wis., but one of the highlights was Rod Schmidt's 1934 Moto Guzzi GT-17. Rod entered the bike into the Motorcycle Classics Ride and Show, and our staff had the pleasure of working next to the bike all day as it was displayed next to our tent.
