Alan Cathcart offered special recognition to Spencer Graves' 1939 Moto Guzzi 
GTS along with three other Moto Guzzis in the Motorcycle Classics Vintage 
Motorcycle Show at the 2011 Barber Vintage Festival.  

Motorcycle luminary Alan Cathcart served as a celebrity judge in the Motorcycle Classics Vintage Motorcycle Show at the 2011 Barber Vintage Festival in Leeds, Ala. With Moto Guzzi as the show sponsor and the featured bike, Alan made special mention of three Moto Guzzis that caught his eye while he walked through the Motorcycle Classics show grounds. They included Spencer Graves' 1939 Moto Guzzi GTS, which Spencer has owned since 1968 and brought to the United States from Ethiopia in 1970 and Antonio Ricciardi's 1951 Moto Guzzi Gambalunga.
