Many years ago I totaled a Moto Guzzi Bassa. The right cylinder was bent slightly back and twisted because it dug hard into the pavement. The motor was still running with the bike on its side but it sounded awful. The bell housing was cracked completely around, 360 degrees. The bike was clearly totaled so I removed a few things I wanted for its replacement, another Moto Guzzi Bassa. A month or so after the insurance company picked it up I saw it on eBay as an ‘Easy Rebuild’. Yea, right. I contacted the seller who came back at me threatening a lawsuit if I contact him again. I sent him detailed photos I took of the damage and told him I’d be certain to notify the Moto Guzzi community of his eBay auction. Of course everyone on the Guzzi Internet forum already knew about my accident and the bike. I never heard from the seller again and his eBay auction was quickly removed.
“That’ll rub out, no problem.”
