Moto Guzzi 500SS

'Cristo Redentor de Los Andes' sits on the 3832 meter (12,572 feet) La Cumbre pass between Argentina and Chile, on a dramatic road that’s now bypassed with a tunnel. But In 1932, it was quite an accomplishment to ride a motorcycle there, let alone a Moto Guzzi 500SS racer! This is an extraordinary and rare machine, available only to selected riders, which was hand-built at the factory with a 4-valve OHC motor.
