Subject: [CR]Picchio Special...a few questions

A few weeks ago a buddy asked me to keep an eye out for a Picchio for him. I had only known of one and it belonged to a lady on the West Coast that I occasionally correspond with. I had never seen one. I looked up the photo of one on the Dale's site and was wowed. My buddy asked the list for one seeking to purchase one and I don't believe got a single response. I am wondering why a bike so wonderful looking seems so rare. Weren't many imported? Are they more plentiful nearer their point of origin? In Canada or Australia? Were there production problems that limited their production? When were they imported to this country?. There were at last two models ( I think) ...were they all as cool as the one on Dale's site? Perhaps we have someone familiar with the brand that could shed a little
light here?
