When Moto Guzzi introduced its first V-twin engine in the mid 1960s, it displaced 700 cc and was mounted in a shaft-drive model called the V7. The engine soon grew to 750 cc, and a performance-oriented model called the Sport followed.
Further enlargements to the V-twin in the mid 1970s increased displacement to 850 cc, and then to a full liter. Most of these engines were mounted in touring motorcycles, but in order to capture the attention of the enthusiast market, Moto Guzzi introduced the LeMans Mk I in 1976.
Like other Moto Guzzis of the period, the LeMans was built on a tubular frame, a section of which could be unbolted to allow for easy removal of the engine. It also had a linked braking system where the foot pedal controlled not only the rear disc, but also one of the twin front discs; the other was activated by the conventional hand-brake lever. Unique to the 1978 Moto Guzzi LeMans motorcycle was a bikini fairing, clip-on handlebars, and distinct badging and trim.
