2001 Ghezzi-Brian at 2011 Barber Vintage Festival
By Mc Staff
The Motorcycle Classics Vintage Motorcycle Show at the 2011 Barber Vintage Festival attracted an impressive group of classic motorcycles. With Moto Guzzi as a show sponsor and featured category in the show, there was no shortage of spectacular classic Moto Guzzi’s on display, especially Larry Hubbard’s 2001 Ghezzi-Brian.
While the Ghezzi-Brian isn’t a “classic” by standard definition, it was certainly a welcome entry in the bike show based on its rarity and significance to Moto Guzzi. Celebrity judge Alan Cathcart gave special recognition to three classic Moto Guzzi’s and explained why he and the rest of the judges felt this newer bike deserved the honor of Best Moto Guzzi in the show.
