"I recall reading that at some point Gianni Motta moved production from Italy to the United States. Does this have anything to do with the "stars and stripes" paint schemes found on his early 80's bikes? Or did he sponsor/build for an American champion? I am curious to know the story, as I found a long sleeve Motta wool jersey (complete with stars and stripes!) at the Rose Bowl swap meet in Pasadena, CA a week ago."

I thought that Gianni Motta frames were always made in Italy, at some point brought over by William Lewis Imports.

Gianni Motta was a sponsor for Team Xerox.
