Not everybody knows that Bimota manufactered for Yamaha a very limited number of frames dedicated to pure races in 70's and 80's...
This is one of a series of Bimota framed Yamaha TZ 350 cc Jon Ekerold World Champion GP 350 in 1980, appeared in 1975.
Main features of this stunning bike are the upper rail running in a straight line from the steering head to the swingarm pivot, providing maximum rigidity, and helium gas pressure charging, to have the effect of further weight reduction and also add rigidity.
This cycle has won a lot, and the first course seems to me a real pearl in terms of technique...like always Bimota is expected to be nowadays...
Sold in Italy in 2003.
