1979 Cosmo Colt

In Italy, Small Displacement by AbhiLeave a Comment

Cosmopolitan Motors of Hatboro, Pennsylvania closed down several years ago, but for a while they had claim to the title of America’s oldest motorcycle distributor. Back in their heyday you could stop by and find bikes from a wide range of smaller Italian manufacturers – many Parillas, Benellis, Capriolos, Garellis, Betas, (and more) featured here on Bike-urious were originally sold out of their shop. In the late 70s, they also offered a series of Italian-built mopeds under the brand name of “Cosmo”.

According to Myron’s Mopeds, the “Colt” was a top tank moped with a Morini motor in a frame that’s identical to the Baretta Magnum. Colts were built by Piccoli Motori and then shipped to the US.

This example (VIN: 10924) has 668 miles. The seller says that it “runs & drives great” and that “everything works on it.”
