Moto Guzzi’s Galletto (cockerel) offered scooter-type weather protection and comfort allied to the superior handling qualities of a true motorcycle. For the engine Guzzi kept with tradition, specifying an overhead-valve, air-cooled ‘flat single’ with outside flywheel. The cycle parts consisted of a tubular steel spine frame combined with sheet metal pressings, a leading-link front fork and single-sided rear swinging-arm. Launched in March 1950 in 160cc/three-speed form, the Galletto was upgraded to 175cc and four speeds in 1952 and then to 192cc in 1954.
The Galletto on sale today was restored in 2007 and has remained in a private collection since. With the Vespa and the Lambretta , the Galletto is one of the most iconic Italian Classic Scooters made, and this is a good opportunity to buy one of the best examples on the market.
