Is the GRiSO frame aluminum?

No not aluminium, More like depleted uranium , You could get a hernia lifting one on your own Laughing
Steel is the metal of GRiSO's choice

Boy if you could stick that motor in a Tonti frame you'd really have something!







Then some pipewrap!







And do the tank up in faux patina!

Apart from the flat tappet issue, my take on the 1200 8V GRiSO is the styling suggests great strength and functionality while the engineering design and actual construction reinforces that suggestion.

While I may indeed be a SAVAGE of Tropical Persuasion - I have no problem whatsoever with a very strong, highly durable STEEL frame being part of what is likely to be a long term keeper for me.

Built like a "Brick Shithouse" - but a very stylish shithouse - is probably about where this bike sits in my assessment. Would it benefit from a reduction in weight - maybe - but the design brief was NOT for a racebike.

Holy Toledo Batman, I think I started at the wrong end of the spectrum.
