1949 Moto Major 350


Torinese engineer (or is it Turin) Salvatore Majorca created the revolutionary Moto Major straight after WWII. Apparently it was an engineering rather than styling exercise. The style is unmistakably good looking... but what you do not see is the engineering feat that is the suspension between the rim and the hub.
Single running prototype, made in 1948-49
