860 GT

Very nice original condition with a low 16,576 miles.  Much recent work done to make roadworthy including: Tires, brakes, battery, carb rebuild, stainless brake lines. Bodywork repainted, frame paint orignal. Great driver and reasonable money for an appreciating classic bevel drive. Fabio Taglioni went to develop a simpler bevel gear configuration and Giorgetto Giugiaro of Studio Italdesign was given the assignment to design a successor for the 750 GT with a matching engine. The result was the first 'square case' bevel twin: the 860 GT, introduced in 1974. The engine got the newly 'Ital' designed outer engine covers and a bevel gear layout using an extra plate for setup. The con-rods were shortened and larger Dell'Orto 32mm carburettors were fitted. The gearshift moved to the left with a crossover rod behind the engine. The new model came with Lafranconi exhaust mufflers to meet noise regulations.
