Magni r3Posted on the 15 June 2012 by Wideopenmoto
The bike was co-built for owner Brent Lenehanby the legendary Italian tuners Magni and Triple Tecs, a US based Trident/Rocket 3 specialist who sorted the BSA Rocket 3 engine with a custom 930cccast cylinder block, a flowed head, Tri Spark ignition and Carillo rods. Mikuni 32mm carburetors help produce a claimed 96 hp at 8500 rpm.The American accented, British triple then hopped a flight to Italy where Magni constructed one of their MV 500 chrome-moly race frames to wedge the engine into.
The first thing which springs to mind when you see the bike is 'Magni', the result of their distinctive, classic bodywork. The fairing and hand-hammered aluminum tank ware done in-house by Magni and of course their “swan neck” triple megaphone exhausts are mouth-watering as always.
The R3 weighs 154 kg dry- giving even the Grand Wizards of Lightness, NCR ,a run for their money!
