    Um, yeah, I'd call that legend. They used Pininfarina's wind tunnel, at least that's where they took all the photos.. It's plainly visible in all the photos. They're an Italian coach builder turned design house that did design work for Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lancia, and plenty of other non-italian car makers.

    Moto Guzzi does have a wind tunnel though:

    I`m trying to remember the name of another British manufacturer that supplied a factory full fairing which also included a deeply valanced front mudguard. I had the idea that it was Royal Enfield, but can`t seem to find any info. Ideas anyone?

    ^ Nope; the bike I`m thinking about was a four stroke. Wish I hadn`t thrown out all those " The Classic Motorcycle" magazines.
