I fidanzati della morte

A tale of love, rivalry and passion set in the 50s, in the madcap world of motorcycle speed races, shot on the occasion of the main competitions of that time, such as Monza’s Moto GP and the last edition of the legendary Milano-Taranto race. With also very rare footage of the Moto Guzzi wind tunnel and factories. The film features, alongside popular actors Rik Battaglia and Sylva Koscina, many of the most important champions of those years: Geoffrey Duke, Libero Liberati, Bill Lomas, Enrico Lorenzetti, Reg Armstrong, Stanley Woods, Ken Cavanagh, Dickie Dale, Thomas Campbell, Pierre Monneret, Albino Milani, Walter Zeller, Bruno Francisci, all of them riding amazing Moto Guzzi, Gilera, Mondial and Norton bikes with the so charming and dangerous dustbin fairings that were going to be banned in 1958.

Gilera 500, four-in-line engine. 1956? Indeed a Gilera 4C - but I wouldn't know 350 or 500.

Bienvenue Didier, on commençait a croire que les extra-terrestres t'avait enlevé..

By the big flywheels, two Falcone, I think. Falcones, '52 onwards Aren't these similar as /vehicle_889468-Moto-Guzzi-Airone-250-Sport-1956.html ?

They are similar but I think the Falcone 500 has a bigger flywheel that hides more of the gearbox, BTW, sent you a PM on the Forum. Thanks

Others with similar front design A very individual take on a Dolphin fairing, some poor sod of a tin basher spent hours with a tree stump and some hammers on that. NSU Sportmax or Rennmax.

Assuming it's running in the 500cc class, this will be based on an R51/3.

Engine looks more like a Gilera single.

Tu as raison, Alessandro. 1953+, Gilera Saturno Cross. So, not 'Moto Guzzi' anymore, and switching form, a-hem, 'racing' to 'all-terrain sports'.

Indians seem to be the weapon of choice for the wall of death. Low C of G and lots of torque? Indian Scout http://silodrome.com/indian-scout-wall-of-death-motorcycle/

Indian, not Indiana.
