Description

One of only three Sanvenero 500cc GPs ever built, this very bike is widely believed to be the 1982 French Grand Prix winning machine with Michel Frutschi. The other two Sanvenero 500s were impounded in period and still live at the Hockenheim Museum. This example was not raced after the GP win and in the early 2000s became part of one of the great Grand Prix motorcycle collections, here in the UK. A special piece of Italian motorcycle history, and ready to use at events all over the world.
