Description

Carlo Guzzi’s final design, the Lodola arrived in 1956, and it broke with Guzzi tradition in that its 175cc SOHC cylinder was inclined at 45° in a twin cradle frame, rather than lying flat. The Lodola combined adequate performance with excellent fuel economy and sound handling. A Sport version followed and in 1959 the model was enlarged to 235cc, becoming the Lodola Gran Turismo. Pushrod valve operation was adopted for the bigger engine which produced 11bhp at 6,500rpm – good for a top speed of about 70mph. Production ended in 1966 after a total of about 10,000 Lodolas had been built.

Purchased from a well known Italian enthusiast, this Lodola Gran Turismo has been completely restored, since when it’s been maintained in running order but not used. It is offered on a Coys bill of sale.
