Turbo......you would mostly be dissappointed.....this stuff has been picked over and sorted for the past 10 or more years.  It used to show up by the truckload at the big swap-meets....then 3 years ago it started showing up as auction lots.....

I am sure there are lots of useful items.....but the most popular items, like the alloy rims, were discovered to be blems (seconds) and are only useful for 'show'.......Unless they have discovered some new merchandise that was not offered in recent years, I'm not interested.

o, i see... had no idea this has been a sort of italian saga , agonizing slow death.

cosmo played quite a big part in ducati and benelli history, shame
