This is the winning bike from the 1984 Barcelona 24 Hour race, ridden by Grau, Reyes & Garriga. Number 24 of the 25 catalogue TT1s built in '84 it was bought by Ricardo Fargas, then sold to racer Domingo Pares after its victory in Barcelona before being bought by its current owner shortly before Pares was killed in the final Barcelona 24 Hour race in 1986. It was later restored by Fargas. The endurance versions of the TT1 featured a quick release rear wheel in addition to the lights and other long distance fitments.
