Post Listing Update: This Galletto was pulled off eBay due to an error in the listing.


Carlo Guzzi was one of Moto Guzzi’s three co-founders back in 1921, and he was the brainchild behind a scooter/motorcycle hybrid called the Galletto (cockerel in Italian). Over approximately 15 years of production, 75,000 units were sold.

The Galletto came together with a tubular steel frame, leading link fork, and single sided swing arm wrapped around a 192cc air-cooled single. Both wheels were the same size, so an optional spare wheel/tire was thoughtfully included and tucked up front. This was Guzzi’s first scooter, and it was introduced at the 1950 Geneva Motor Show.

Michael Harper-Smith is selling this example, and he notes that it’s “an older restoration still in very presentable condition”. He’s got two in his collection, so this “good running and riding” Galletto is up for sale. Find this Guzzi scooter in Tarzana, California with bidding up to $1,008
