There is something about the design of this motorcycle that made their products unique for many years.

Name the manufacturer and their claim to fame.

Here is a hint. This model was an earlier version using the same unique design which made this company famous.

Okay I guess a major hint is required. Look at the frame, what do you see when you look at it?

Hi impalass, its not the front brake. If you look at the frame design, what shapes do you see.

Hi Smeghead & Impalass,

Smeghead you are very close. The Ducati frame design could have been an evolution of "this company's" idea.

If you look at the Ducati trellis frame, what do you see in common with "the motorcycle" company who first thought of using this shape.

Hint: think of basic shapes... :D

Here it is finally!
It's a 1927 Cotton racing model fitted with a Blackburne OHC engine.
This is the only picture I found, it's the same that Andy disguised for us ;)
