These early bikes were ridden by Mendogni, Zubani, Tassinari, and later, coming from MV, Provini. In the late sixties, they were still successful in Italian Championship races with Agostini, Villa, Parlotti, Spaggiari and Grassetti.
The authentic "canto del cigno" was in 1967 when Angelo Bergamonti, who had won so many junior races for Morini on Settebello's, clinched the 250 Italian title again. In 1968, the bike finished extremely well in national races, but it was to be the last year of a truly great era with a bike that will remain in racing history as one of the greatest ever.
This bike is a strong proof of the saying that "what looks right, is right" and of the fact that a thing of beauty can be functional. Eye candy and winning!!------FLICKR-GALPALU
