Let's get out on the limb and guess. How about a 66 or 67 RC166 Honda 250. Whatever, it's pretty.

I'll go farther out on a limb and guess that it's an Egli CBX


Although I just noticed the right-hand side chain drive

It's not a Honda, and the engine is not CBX.
Keep trying folks...
It sure is pretty though, don't you agree?

My Turn

I think maybe this Red Beauty is a Benneli? a 750 six cylinder?

Another interesting trivia Aris.

I had no idea MV Agusta made a six cylinder. Thanks for bringing this wonderful machine to our attention.

From what little information I found, it appears to be a racer from 1957-1960.

Here are a couple of links.

Dammit!

I knew that the Benneli had the drive on the wrong side and I should have kept looking. Oh well nice one. Good job Andy!

Nice job Andy!
It is a MV Agusta 6 raced by the team Elli.
There isn't much info about this bike, but it could be a special that was built recently.
I'll post some more pictures later, I'm at work now
