Friday bike

Following on from the BFG, Louis Boccardo's next venture was the Boccardo Aero 97.

This was another French built, car engined bike, this time using the straight four engine from the Citroen AX/Peugeot 205. It was offered in both petrol and diesel engined version of between 1200 and 1400cc, details, but only 5 were ever made (2 petrol, 3 diesel).
I remember reading a test on one in Motorcycle International, and one unusual feature was that the fuel was carried in the double skinned fairing giving a capacity of 33 litres.
No idea how many are still on the road, but I found an article on one of the the diesel bikes, now pulling a sidecar.

With bodywork removed. Now you know why it had a full fairing!
