I've heard that the "concept" pictures....just one with one close up on Motorcycle specs was an artists rendition prior to a build of just 1 of 1.....But it is Bimota we are talking about here......L'oro Del Bimota...The latest Bible penned by Messrr Guiseppi Morri mentions just 1 of 1 DB5 Borsalino.....and the paperwork that came with the bike references this also....together with the DB6 version that was also sold at the time to the same person....And then theres the video clip taken at the factory with the 2 Borsalino bikes in the factory after their return from the various trips to Harrods also...and in that youtube clip of the factory in English they reference just the one of one also of each model


Yep ok. It took a while, but you eventually got to the bottom of the mystery. Nice work Sherlock
