aermacchi-metisse

late night's, early morning's, can't stop looking at the aermacchi in the shed, the more i look, the more it makes sense, the weight of the machine is low down, the centre of gravity almost perfect, with a wheel-base of 54 and a quarter inches, [that's a quarter of an inch shorter than the boxer and a massive three and a half inches shorter than the sporty, the aermacchi looks long, but in reality, it's shorter than a very short thing, almost up with the wheelbase of a modern cbr 600rr at 54.7 inches, this bike is amazing, we don't know anything about it really, the front wheel for example, to me, it look's like it should be rocking a four-leading shoe drum in that massive casting instead of a little cast iron disc and ap lockheed caliper, why is it twin plugged but only running a single coil/ht lead? at the end of the day though, it's whole point of being is a no-compromise machine, built to go around a race track as fast as possible, i just don't know if i can do it justice.....
