I have the original book by Sarti, apparently there was not enough interest in the English language version published to warrant an english version of the latest, which I purchased recently from Bimota Classic Parts.

Despite this it is still quite informative, and I am trying to learn Italian anyway Very Happy



Both are nice books....and it may have been true with the first version...not enough interest in English version....if they only marketed it in Italy....but....English is still the most accepted 2nd Language.....51 voters on here out of 52 wanted an English version.....


Just download the google translate app to your phone or tablet if you have one....then place the camera over the pages and it auto translates what it sees...Honest to god...instantly

That’s over 100 Aus for postage on a book. Postage /shipping from USA is the most expensive on the planet. It WAS going to cost me over 2k Aus to ship a bare ally frame (main frame only) from US to Aus Shocked

Yes eBay postage. Seems now that eBay fees include the postage cost and eBay is now in the shipping game costs are out of proportion. It does pay to contact the seller to see what the options are. I recently put one of the kids KTM's up for sale and it automatically listed it for sale in the US even though I had said local delivery only - couldn't work out why it was asking for international shipping options until I checked the fine details.

Problem with eBay is that they keep trying to "improve" our online experience - I think they only consult with themselves!

Together with ebay wanting 10% of the total sale price...and 10% again from paypal fees....theyre just killing it.....front that up against advertising on Specific Facebook pages...like the 4 or 5 Bimota ones.....which is free...and puts you straight into the pocket notification of every Bimota owner thats on those pages.....some 5,000 or so.....Direct and specific targeting to ones that would be interested.....Good on it...until Facebook start charging that is...…….
