Biography

PhotographBeno Rodi's Royal Enfield's

In the 1940's Al Rodi Motorcycles was the Indian Motorcycle dealer for greater Atlanta. Over the next twenty years Al Rodi operated various shops around Atlanta devoted to everything from AJS to Zundapp, but focused on the English marques including Royal Enfield and re-badged "Indian-Enfield's".

After the Japanese transformation of the motorcycle market in the 1970's, the old British bikes and parts inventories were put in storage to make room for the new offerings from Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki and Suzuki.

Today, Al Rodi's son Beno has taken all of the former inventory from British bike shops collected over the course of many years where they now reside in a warehouse near Winder, Georgia outside Atlanta. He is involved in a variety of restoration projects as well as historical racers. Beno has himself been involved in motorcycle racing since the 1960's and currently campaigns a selection of Royal Enfield Bullets in flat track, road racing and trials events.
