According to a local shop owner who sold Benotto bikes in the mid 1980s, their top models (such as the Modelo 3000) continued to be made in Italy until at least the late 1970s.

Is this just rumor or can it be confirmed?

What year did Benotto move its production to Mexico? Do people have opinions on whether the quality of the bikes suffered after the move?
