Factory Crated 1993 Moto Guzzi Daytona 1000
Dr. John Wittner was a dentist. Dr. John also assembled a racing team, several of whom were his patients, and back-to-back AMA Endurance Championships riding modified Moto Guzzis. Moto Guzzi had slumped in the face of Japanese sport bikes in the '70s and '80s, and Guzzi reached out to Dr. John to help them deliver a bike that would revitalize the company. The result was the Daytona, named after the legendary track where Dr. John and his team had won. Despite being built in 1993, this Moto Guzzi Daytona 1000 is literally factory fresh — as in, still in the crate it left Italy in. The bike was originally delivered to North Carolina via Italy, before being delivered to a dealership in Georgia. Either an inventory oversight or a recognition of its potential collectibility lead to the bike never being removed from the crate or being prepared for sale, making it a one-of-one example of classic Italian motorcycling.
