    This bike Tricolore, means so much to me as I remember the travling down from Liverpool with my wife to Chelsea and bought my first 851 a 1988 Tricolore we sleept in car, outside a little chef I Think freshened up in morning and the drove to the selling address to buy bike, at That time I pushed the boat out regards good budget, the bike was only showing 600miles and I paid 6,500 for it.

    Rode it home forgot to hang arround and follow my wife, I did not see my wife until she arrived back home much later that day, boy was she angry. 2 Tricolore on she is still one of my favorite bikes, with certain mods like 17" wheel, maxton, and a few more.
    The 851/888 series has been the most engaging bikes I have ever owner, still proud owner of Tricolore & Sp4.
    Anyhow Thank you for post, is this bike for sale?

    Cheers
    Paul

    I'm puzzled why that bike has a few important parts (fork sliders, triple clamps, brake calipers, swing arm, and possibly a little bit of the paint design) on it that would be more appropriate on a Tricolor Strada and not a pre-production Kit. Maybe they were replaced when it was "restored in 2014 to 100% original condition"??

    Didn't the "Kits" have an underbraced swingarm?
