The Bristol Italian Moto Festival never fails to bring out some interesting exotica, and this year was no exception. One of my favourites was an ultimate cafe racer, the Bimoto Tesi 2D. A Ducati Vee twin engined bizarre looking machine that had the crowds puzzling over which end was which. It’s alledged to be very nimble due to it’s hub centre steering and light weight. A valuable machine from the mid ’90s that is supposed to be a joy to ride.
An interesting classic, this little 250 overhead cam Parilla from the early ’60s is very rare. Apparently only a handful were imported and only two are known to exist today, both owners living near Bristol.
And this shiny little number is just very pretty in a most Italian way, with it’s cam drive visible through a little window on the head.
