I don't know the answers about when the Mexico facility was opened, or when the Italian facility was closed. However, a least during the mid '80s, the high-end Benotto frames were still made in Italy, while the rest of their line was made in Mexico.

When did Benotto move production from Torino to Mexico? Did they build bikes in both places concurrently? When did the Torino plant close?
