Yes., I noted the Italjet too...the body work looked like a Velocette/Indian...did Italjet do that? What engine came out of that bike before the trumpet? What year ? So obviously, I've never seen one before...

I read about Italajets a few years back an Triumph engines were what was put in them right from the start. Don't know if it was due to availability or reliability or what. Am curious to what they were like to ride with an Italian frame (I think).

Always liked the look of the Velo Indian, shame they never took off with only approx 150 made.

Never heard of the Italjet before, learn something new everyday.
