i have one of his, i think my brother has 3 - they are all runners, with no issues. he has excellent taste - always brought over the neatest little bikes... the patina on most of his bikes is very nice. or is yours a repaint?
Decals on the tank are facing the wrong way so it's clearly a repaint.

Michael bought it from a collector in Torino Italy about 10 years ago. He's kept it on display since then. When he decided to thin the herd a little, this bike went to auction. Apparently this model was never imported into the US and there are very few of them.

Michael is local and I'm hoping I'll get an invitation over to see his collection.
