It won't be half assed
Right now the rear wheel is off and then the swing arm for drive shaft service. I have a pair of aluminum spoke wheels coming to replace the mags. The look will be the usual Guzzi cafe,no side covers,open spaces, small seat and tail piece, large fuel tank,8 inch headlight,open exhaust..It runs ok for now...Over the winter I'll take apart the engine.
20 years ago I had a 76 Lemans 850. These bikes are reasonably fast but the exhaust sound,the intake roar and feel of the machine at high speeds is euphoric .And the faster you go,the smoother it gets.
