Racing God “Ago” visited the NPA booth at EICMA on Wednesday. NPA, together with Roland Sands, gave the former champion the custom-made bike to take home with him.

“Like many road-race enthusiasts, I’ve always been a fan of Ago,” Justyn Amstutz, a partner in NPA, told Dealernews. “With us being at EICMA, and him appearing here, I just wanted to offer him a token of my appreciation for the memories.”

NPA is the largest purveyor of pre-owned bikes in the United States. Amstutz appeared at EICMA this year for the first time to drum up business in Europe.
