What a loss. Did anyone do more than Mr. Elli to rescue and preserve the MV heritage?
And all with his own hard-earned cash.
Seeing a lineup of red and silver MV factory racers in the flesh, or even watching them howl past on a demonstration run, is something I will never ever forget.
Here's hoping that Elli's unmatched collection is kept together and continues to appear before the public..
Even just to help sales of modern bikes, I can't think of more effective marketing tool: it's an instant education in what makes MVs so special.
