NCR 900 NUMBER 1




by Egidio Tomassi


1975 winner at Montjuich 24 h, drivers Benjamin Grau and Salvador Canellas, part of the Saltarelli collection. It' s indeed the NCR #1 bike, 5 or 6 build with the small sandcast cases before the regulations changed and standard 900 carters where needed. In 1973 a bored 860 CC 750SS won the Montjuich 24 hours race, looked a bit the same but with standard roundcase carters.
