The wording of the original agreement between Roland Sahm and Faliero Masi, as I always heard it, was "Sales rights to the Western Hemisphere".

I believe Canada and Mexico were included. They had a dealer or two in Hawaii. Don't know of any asian outlets in the old days.

Tom Donahue asked:

"I do, however, have a question about the desirability of CaliMasis in the rest of the world: Do they hold the same relative value as their Italian counterparts? In other words, if the '73 and '74 Italian Masis had a relative value of 100+x, would a comparable CaliMasi have that same relative value in Italy, in Japan? "

As far as I know, the Calimasis were never sold outside of the US, so it would surprise me that anybody in Italy would even know of the existence of the California bikes. Does anybody else know what geographical limitations were imposedby the license agreement? Were Canada, Mexico and Japan included?
