Professor Dal Monte and his original design for the record bicycle, later made with a few modifications such as double wings on the handlebars by Cicli Moser. The shape of the wheels was inspired by the radar mounted on airborne warning and control system airplanes: not a simple disc but a slightly convex shape, more lenticular. Even so, some thought the shape had been adopted only for publicity reasons. Photo: Italian Racing Bicycles
