Benelli 350cc Race Bike & The Isle of Man

Benelli 350 Four Cylinder
180 piece jigsaw puzzle

The puzzle page didn't identify this bike, but Google's Image Search found it. Team Obsolete has a page about it. Renzo Pasolini came in second on this bike at the Isle of Man in 1968. No disk brakes. My custom Triumph Bonneville had a similar 4 leading shoe brake from an Italian bike.

Here we have a practice lap on this same bike 25 years later:
