Hi Y’all,

A statement was in a recent post ( on the Moto-Guzzi List ) to the effect that the thing a mfg. can do is to fail to demand. I had personal experience that very concept.

In the ’70s I was a road rep. for a sub of Benelli motorcycles. My employer had the rights to distribute the bikes in the Mid states from Cosmopolitan the North American importer. The rep. had gone on a binge, abandoned his company car, and out of sight for 2 weeks.

I was hired walked in to find a full of minibikes with a few 650 250 4stroke singles, 250 2stroke smaller enduro types in.

There was a whole generation of coming of bike buying and there was an Arab oil embargo limited gas supply pushed up the ANYTHING with 2 wheels, to give good gas mileage), sell. I was opening dealers Around 10K bought you a slew of 6 big bikes, a parts package, a big sign.

My big bikes were gone, I was told to keep dealers with minibike and the promise of new 4 cylinder 6 cylinder to come. A lone 6 cyl was sent Italy shown all over the I rode it in a parking lot at Daytona, it WAS Talk about demand.

The phone rang off the hook.

But the weeks went by, all the sub distributors screaming at Cosmo for bikes. kept talking about at the factory. The best they do was find a load of 650s had been destined for South when I got my 8, I went to the warehouse, each crate installed DOT lights reflectors myself, to have a real motorcycle to to my dealers.

The sub distributors got so frustrated (and of Cosmo) that a meeting was I flew to Houston to represent my a vote was taken and money put up to our own person to the factory to find out the When he returned, what he had to say us away. They were on

Nothing was being produced. The were just sitting in the sun the factory. It was pitiful, the greatest the world had ever seen, a to really penetrate the American and they blew it squabbling a few lira.

Meanwhile, most of the dealers I had were ordinary folks who had their bucks together to a little shop be self-employed. I sat kitchen tables of more a few listened to their dreams for new business. I could see what was to happen, it sickened me.

I wrote all a letter, giving as much of a as I could get by my employer, resigned.

is history now, Guzzi on, there are a lot more early 70s Eldos than any Benellis to be so Guzzi must have a little better job back I personally support anything has to do to fill the existing demand, and new demand, while maintaining the Guzzi mystique.
