Hi Aris,

I found it! Here is what the web sight says...

MotoBi/Benelli Road Racers (and Scramblers)

You can visit the official MotoBi-Zanzani Vintage Roadracers website at: http://www.motobi.com

From a 1977 issue of the Dutch magazine "Motor" comes this photo sent by Ivar de Gier. The MOC Benelli Sei was entered in the 1977 Bol d'Or by Motobecane. It had very aero-looking bodywork which isn't visible in this photo taken while the bike was being worked on in the pits.

Benelli Sei/Motobecane racer Note the two-part spun aluminum wheels, single-sided swing arm, and trigangulated frame using the engine as a stressed member. 106K jpg file

Andy, I don't know what I'm going to do with you
You found it, and with it you found the site full of treasures

The trivia game has become really interesting with such players
