Guzzi Collection
« on: May 16, 2022, 04:16:29 PM »
Hi - I am going to Chicago and am interested in finding a gentleman who was building a Moto Guzzi collection (one bike per model?).  I sold a bike to him many years ago; I seem to remember he was a lawyer.

Anybody know of this fellow; maybe he has a museum. 

Thanks
Pete

I seem to recall the same guy from many years back, sorry no name here to give you.  My recollection comes from many, many years back.  Maybe also check with Cycle Werks in Barrington - that shop has been around for a long time and as I recall they did some outstanding restorations.  They seem to now be mostly a BMW shop, and may be under different ownership from years ago, don't know.  Good luck with your search.
