    It's a 1936 machine but they went back into the 1920s - 30 years before Ducati. It's a surprisingly quick machine and easily sits at 70Mph

    Taglioni was heavily influenced by Norton and other British bikes in his youth. Early 750GTs used Amal carbs and Lockheed brakes because he was an Anglophile.
