    trust you mick to pick it so fast

    The Majestic is the physical embodiment of the Art Deco aesthetic, a streamlined torpedo which suggests Speed and Modernity. The real innovation is at the front—this is one of the first motorcycles to feature hub-centered steering (as beloved by Bimota of late). And yes, the front also has sliding pillar suspension, similar to that on a Lancia Lambda or early Morgan. the styling apparently promises more than the 500 cc Chaise engine can deliver. Still, its hard not to be seduced by those swooping lines in light-gauge steel, beautifully accentuated by classic French racing blue paintwork. For that, we could forgive just about anything.

    Its got triple reverse fishtail exhaust! Looks like something Arlen Ness would come up with. Its all swooped and curvy. I like the color and that example sure is in good condition. Interesting.
