    So the parts packaged with Ducati and Moto Morini on the cardboard are 2002 and earlier. I didn't notice that a lot of the stuff has only had cagiva Mv and Husqvarna. The article seemed to totally omit the large 500 singles similar to BSA gold star Matchless, Velocette etc. I wonder how many of those they sold compared to the others I mentioned.
