Been described as YB11 but nope...dont think so...they were carbon fibre and this looks like glass fibre painted gloss black...so earlier mid 80's early 90's Bimota?? Db1??.or not even Bimota??

Has cut-outs at front edge on either side so yeh sure...chain run on LHS...and brake line run RHS for top hung rear brake caliper? Or remote adjuster for rear shock on DB1 that fits on the RHS rear swinging arm topside??

Yeah I noticed that it was painted FG too Steve, I just thought that was how the YB11's must have been, thought it odd though.

Basic design is similar to the Dieci, but with the extra cutout for the brake line. Which bikes use a caliper above the swinging arm? The Dieci has it hanging below with the brake line running along the torque arm

All the best

That's the same as the hugger on my YB8. The RH cut out exists but is not used for anything. It looks like the woven rovings have been glassed over with chopped strand. Genuine Bimota looks better than that so it could be a replica. Too smooth on the outside to be a repair item.
