Hi Guy's,

Hi Wayne,

I totaly agree with you.

Has I said, Built with love to be a bit diferent. You can just see the hours put into them, and not a load of dosh threw at them, to make them look all the same. I bet the owners treat riding them has a secondry measure. :icon_salut:

Regards Charlie.

It's good to be different I think!

I know with my own project I have some serious obstacles to overcome but I'm sure I can work something out.

The italian engines are a little more bulky in the cases that the same period Brit engines. The finned wet sump makes them a bit taller too.

I'm most torn over what forks to use. They will probably end up being British at least externally. I do have some 4 stud triumph sliders here somewhere. Have no idea what they are off though.

I think my next job is to reassemble the top end and get the motor running.

Wayne....

+1, this summ's it up very well I believe (not sure???).

These French and Italian builders have this kind of passion while doing things. Their ability to combination technic and design is special, another one:

Summary

we started with this

Which used to be one of these!

Nice period picture that Thanks!

Notice how all these engines share syling cues? It's like the same person was behind them all.

I forgot to post that twin carb bianchi. It's simply STUNNING! Looks to borrow some Ossa cues maybe?

It's amazing to think it started out as one of these!

The other Bianchi was this bike

Morphed into this

It's interesting that he's managed to work with the original styling of rear of the frame.

Here's a link through google translate.

Thanks for the pic's Wayne, keep them coming.

The twin carb bianchi, how did that work ? I have an XT600 with twin carbs with a slid for slow running and a CV for the rest.

I love that bike !

I think they all excel in the class department. I wouldnt be surprised if they ride well too. Often if it looks right, it is. One of those Bianchi's has obviously seen some action somewhere.
