The super bike of the 1970's, this is a prime example of "they just don't make 'em like they used to." It's honestly such a good looking ride, it could be on display in a museum and classified as art. Stat wise, it features 68 hp, 864 cc, 90-degree desmodromic SOHC V-twin engine with Dell’Orto PHM 40 AD carburettors, five-speed manual gearbox, Marzocchi cartridge front suspension, and twin shock and swing-arm rear suspension---so it's not slouch on the road, either. For those with deep pockets and a need for speed, it will be up for auction soon.
