If you are racking your brain to remember where you heard about collecting vintage Italian bikes, it’s here http://drivewithdave.com/collecting-vintage-italian-motorcycles-pt-1/ in an article with Chicago vintage bike expert Burt Richmond.
Long time rider and collector of vintage cars and bikes, Burt is considered an expert in what to collect. A follow-up piece with Burt is in the works, and you will get a little insight into Italian machinery that’s still affordable.
