Dr. John’s Moto Guzzi

(20 customer reviews)


This book retraces the fairytale story filled with passion and ingenuity of American dentist John Wittner, better known as Dr. John, and his unique contribution to the glorious history of Moto Guzzi, one of Italy’s most historic motorcycle marques.

Thanks to the experienced British journalist racer Alan Cathcart, who test rode each of his bikes as they were constructed, the story of the race victories and championship successes which Dr. John brought to Moto Guzzi is recounted here. The book also includes an interview conducted with him late in 2023, in which John Wittner recalls his experiences with the company, and especially his relationship with its then proprietor, the mercurial Alejandro de Tomaso.

This is an unmissable book, accompanied by many beautiful and exclusive photographs, available as an individually numbered limited edition, printed on high quality paper. It comes with a hardback cover, 152 large-format pages, and texts in both English and Italian.

This is an highly recommended book for all Moto Guzzi fans, and indeed motorcycle lovers in general.

    Ce livre d’Alan CATHCART est d’autant plus important qu’il arrive “comme un signe” au moment même où John WITTNER, Dr John, vient de nous quitter ce 17 février 2024 à l’âge de 77 ans !
