I’m featuring this photograph for 2 reasons, reason 1 is self-evident and reason 2 is the rear suspension on that Gilera. I haven’t come across it before and was hoping that our regular readers might know more about it than me. It’s an interesting bike from a design standpoint with a right hand side suicide shifter, unusual rear springs and a shaft drive. If you know what it is, let us all know below!
