Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...
« on: October 11, 2017, 06:54:49 PM »
Saw this while on holiday in Mallorca, last week:



3 1/2 Sport - one of the best-looking bikes, ever.
Somewhat "altered", in this case; probably has a mid-lifed owner (such as myself), no longer up to a prone position.

At least it's on the road (theoretically, looking at that front disc...)

I love the look of the mid 70s Morini 3 1/2 Sport  :-*

But not that one  :'(

Morini desert sled?
Used to love the look of the Ducati Darmah back in the day.

Those cast iron discs turned red rusty within 5 mins of stopping.
The most successful F1 car designer Adrian Newey has owned a 3 1/2 for years. So they must be good.
