From Bike EXIF:
Torinese engineer Salvatore Majorca created the revolutionary Moto Major straight after WWII. Apparently it was an engineering rather than styling exercise, but 60 years on, its shape is still breathtaking.
It’s like something from a classic radio play in my mind.
that’s freaking beautiful.
Holy Ned! I want to ride on that!
That front bit looks like it’s made of chocolate, or a black cherry fruit roll-up, Perhaps left to sit a minute too long under the photo studio lighting
I wonder if this type of bike can be purchased?
Someone call Victory and tell them we need a modern repro of this.
wow, gorgeous. I don’t ride, but I’d hang this in my living room.
This was the prototype – they were never put into production.
At the risk of repeating m’self, you may also want to check the 1934 BMW R7 prototype. Another gorgeous bit of work.
I saw that about the same time I saw this:
I’d ride both. At once. I already ride a pretty stylin’ vintage beemer, I just wish it looked like this. Sometimes.
Gorgeous. But can it turn?
Looks like that big foreskin over the front wheel would restrict the degrees of motion.
i just came…
