Yes Xavier, you are correct. The Voxan was sent for importation evaluation. However, either it didn’t pass or the market was not right at the time as they have never been brought into Canada. There were other rarities such as a pre production Ducati F1 750 (Montjuich if memory serves), OW01 Yamaha, Bimotas and others. :mouthwateLooks like a Voxan behind the Ducati mono
And at the bottom, on the left, the orange bike isn't it a Laverda?
Photo was snapped by a family member in a top-notch tuner's shop filled with other equally mouth-watering machines... Not sure who lucky owner was and is...but sure would be interesting to know!Very very nice. Who is the lucky owner
Thanks, Stephen, might be the same bike (judging by their scarcity...) I notice that you called it the Romanelli collection -- as in the designer and long-ago importer of Italian bikes to Montreal? If you don't mind my asking, what's the story behind your photo?Not sure about the details surrounding that old photo but...
This photo was taken summer of 2005 somewhere east of Ontario. Look hard and you'll notice the same style tail section about fourth from the end up against the block wall. Bike was complete, low mileage and lookin' good at that time. :naughty:
Yes, what you see in that photo were the remnants of Francesco’s motorcycle business and private collection. He has since sold all the parts. I suspect the bikes are gone as well as he has not returned my phone calls or emails. He had several that I wished I’d bought back then. I tried to contact him with ideas of buying at lest one but when I didn’t get any replies I put a deposit down on my F3....Thanks, Stephen, might be the same bike (judging by their scarcity...)

Glad to hear any stories you feel like sharing... Like what happened after the Dino pic was snapped at Indy..?Peter, there is a whole lot more to Franks story as well as Linda’s Indiana. You would not believe what happened after that photo of Dino (Linda’s name for her Indiana) was taken at the Indy Moto GP :naughty: but we’re getting off topic.
I’ll see if I can find the story she wrote about Dino and post it with photos in the “Other Marques 2 Wheeled” section.
