Quite something. They have a real Gilera 4 in a museum in Milan http://earlymotor.com/leon/misc/html/leonardo.htm

I'm lucky enough to own the 1932 Senior Works Rudge ridden by Wal Handley in the 1932 TT. He crashed on the 4th lap while in third place chasing the Nortons. Rudge in 1932 was the first factory team to go to the island with megaphones, and the noise attracted all sorts of comment. But when you compare the calico-ripping scream of the Italian fours with the put-put of the Manx Nortons in the late 1950s you realise how things changed in those 25 years!
