:devil: :mellow: :devil: :devil: Hey Guys!

Where's the Bergonzoni Love?!? Got the Bull/Competition, Technokit JR. and of course, the good old Baja 5b.

I dig the site with two spoons look forward to making some new bros with the same addiction.

Hey Brother, Spoke with you in the 5b forum, great to hear from you again. What method do you guys find is the best for part support? I know Eric here in Florida(GBDIRECT), but is there any one else here in the good old USA?

Grrrrr, Bear

not really. there is a guy i found in Cali that some yrs back bought a load of what appear to be Starts and one of the original Dymanic 1/5s. i say older cuz some of them still have the Kawasaki F7 motors installed, while others have the Boss motor on them, but the cars are nearly identical.
his name is Rick, but i ve since lost his email addy due to haveing my puter shit out on me.

the next best thing i can suggest is Raco over in Sweeden/Finland area, and other European Hobby shops that used to carry the Bergs. seems some still have parts, but don't seem to willing to shell them off to clean out the shelves. most appear to still want Retail prices for them.

Im affraid Berg parts will soon be getting in shorter supply than they already are.
im selling one of mine right now, and may very well sell the last one i have at some point. Parts is a small part of it, nowhere to run is another small part, but being broke atm is the biggest reason im trying to sell atm.

:crying: Thanks for the info brother. Sounds like this one may become a shelf queen, or I may have to start a small machine shop in my garage...

ive never wanted a cnc machine as much as i have in this last yr.
i guess i just need to bite the bullet and rob a bank and get some cash.
i can learn how to use, it, but making one could be a bit though.

If i did have one, we would NEVER be out of parts! including motor parts. lol

i sold the other one, so this is my last unit. its the Porsche 911T body unit, with ornage and red anod parts.

im asking 650.00 plus shipping for the Car (no radio or rx) and 1000.00 plus shipping for the car and all the spare parts i have for it (one running ported spare motor, another longblock less piston, rims/ new PMT Tires ect........)

thanx Bear. i appreciate it. i d keep it but there just isnt much for onroad availability around here. so i built a baja i can take onroad and on the sand dunes, so it ll get more use than the berg for me.

Anytime...

No problem Bro, That's what we're here for. The Baja is a ton of fun...run anywhere lots of aftermarket support, and the badass looks don't hurt either...

Here are a ton of old Bergonzoni pix from Drier Racing's shop in Orlando before they went belly up after ripping off a bunch of people (especially Giorgio Bergonzoni)





Sorry about the quality (or lack of)

I took those back in the day with my Mavica floppy disk cam lol

Great cars, but no good to me if I can't get parts for them :no:

I actually pulled my Bandit out of storage about an hour ago :cool:

Gunna clean it up tomorrow and throw it on Craigslist....
