seems like someone clearing out all their Bimota sales Brochures...and a couple of the "bible" and the lesser known and probably rarer "Bimota story"

http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=fastxjr&hash=item46372e7508&item=301573502216&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR6.TRC1.A0.H0.Xbimota.TRS0&_nkw=bimota&ghostText=&_sacat=0

Love the pricing....6.70 for each and every ite,...and the Bible??/ lets say ten times the price...67.00....a bargain compared to the brochures...and no reserve

I like the Bimota Story - 25 year anniversary. It's a nice summary of the company.

My YB8 is an '89 model yet the brochure states they were made from '90-'92. Bimota comfirmed my year of manufacture themselves and I have a copy of the original German rego papers from '89. Did they have too much cheap Italian wine on the day of making the brochure and get the dates wrong?

Thanks Atomibart. I've been hoping a $50 copy might turn up. Looks like I could be waiting for a while Sad

I was on the lookout for about 3 years before I finally got one for about $200 Ausie $$$ delivered. They are getting good money for them. As 2bims says, Italian print ones are cheaper.

2bims, not being a linguist, cunning or otherwise, I have devoted myself to pasta consumption, in the hope that they would throw the language in for free. Disappointed thus far, I comfort myself that it's better to be doing it, than reading about it:lol:

Knopv, thanks for the heads up on that book. I don't speak or read German but after doing little research, I found that it has lots more pictures than text so I ordered one. I figure it be like Playboy, I never really read the articles there either
