Giuseppe Pattoni built a few race bikes back in the early 1960s. They were parallel twin 4 strokes beginning at 250cc and eventually growing to 500cc. To say production was limited is an understatement, only 10 bikes were built over 10 years. Between 1966 and 1975, the bikes raced over 150 times to some success and whatever the case, they looked great!
Roberto Pattoni, Giuseppe’s son, has received many requests to build a replica or continuation of the originals, and after looking over the drawings has decided to build the Paton BIC 500 8V RU, an exact duplicate of the originals. These will be hand built to the highest standards and available to collectors and vintage racing buffs.
Looking at the photos shows what a beautiful bike this is. No mention is made of the price, but, as always, if you have to ask …
Thanks for the tip, Richard!
