Cagiva RG500

Cagiva/Suzuki RG500 MK4, this was the first bike in the 500cc class under the name of Cagiva. This is the ex Alex George machine as ridden in the TT of Man in 1979 and 4 Grand prix, Austria 13th, Italy 13th and 2 retirements. He won the big race at the TT beating Mike Hailwood on the Big Honda, but the Cagiva/Suzuki failed in the senior and Mike won the race.
