1949 Moto Guzzi Motoleggera 65B ‘Guzzino’


The Motoleggera 65 was the first new model to come out of the Moto Guzzi factory after World War II and it was an immediate commercial success. The ‘Guzzino’, as it was affectionately called, offered the nation’s war-torn masses mobility for very little money and it didn’t require road registration in Italy until 1951. Around 70,000 were produced from 1946 to 1954.

Powered by a 2bhp, 63.7cc, 2-stroke single with a 3-speed transmission, the Guzzino has front and rear suspension, weighs 45kg dry, has a top speed of 50km/h (31mph) and returns 141mpg. In 1948 the Guzzino was updated with numerous changes including a strengthened swing arm and revised switchgear.

This is a matching-numbers type-B example and in totally restored condition. It is fitted with a filler cap with a fuel gauge – a very rare accessory of the time. It is to be sold with its original registration plate and a Coys bill of sale.
