    Better than the old chap I was expecting:rolleyes: but no, I think Guzzi Rob might provide an answer. I thought it'd be bigger than a 350 with it being a twin...maybe 500?

    It could be a 350, possibly around 1939. The 500 wasn't made in that style until after the war. (I am quoting my Oracle here. I am useless at remembering stuff like this).

    Mmm. I believe the pre-war models had girder forks and the 350 was a single cylinder (T80 or 5H models?)
    This is more likely to be a 500 Speed Twin. (5T or T100). Almost certainly post war as it has telescopic front forks and a rigid? rear end. The lack of a nacelle on the forks would make its manufacture prior to 1949.
