The Americana

These are photos of Riccardo Chiosi's Gilera 300, The Americana. We published other photos of it back in Sideburn 15. I knew some of his bikes had been lost in a fire, but I wasn't sure if this had, but Riccardo confirmed it had... G

Yes, totally destroyed, nothing was saved. The Bultaco, and two other prototypes, various tools, materials... a lot of time and money. 

Better to have loved and lost... G
