Mecum calls the Victoria Avanti the little sister to the Tin Banana. Victoria’s advertising called it “the ideal light weight motorcycle”. Whatever you call it, the Avanti is a distinctive 50cc moped with some exquisite details.
The small two-stroke motor was paired with a 3-speed transmission. Dry weight was just over 130 pounds. If it helps your valuation, a nice looking example sold at Mecum Las Vegas 2017 for $5,000 plus buyer’s premium.
This example (VIN: 37920) is being offered by the second owner, who bought it from Germany and will include the original German title. It was given an “Excellence in Class” in the Post-War European thru 1965 class at the 13th Annual Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance this year.
