Linto 500 race bike

Designed by the famous italian engineer Lino Tonti just before he was hired at Moto Guzzi, the Linto 500 was the result of joining together two Aermacchi 250 single-cylinder horizontal engines, both four-stroke models with rod-and-rocker distribution. This pure race bike was ready in 1968 and the six speeds four-stroke two-cylinder generated up to 65 HP, more than the Nortons and Matchlesses that were still the best choice for private racers. That year, Alberto Pagani drove the Linto 500 to second Place in the East German Grand Prix and in 1969 he won his first world championship race at the Italian Grand Prix. In 1969 the Linto 500 was also ridden by other wellknown racers as Jack Findlay or John Dodds.
