Description

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.

Restored in 2007, the wonderful Galletto on sale today has remained in in display in a private collection ever since, where it has received regular yet sparing use and maintenance. Alongside the Vespa and the Lambretta , the Galletto is one of the most iconic Italian Classic Scooters, and this is a good opportunity to buy arguably one of the best examples available on the market.
