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.
This example (apparently the VIN is just: GAB62) was “recently found sitting on display part of a large collection of vintage motorcycles. The engine spins over when you kick the kick lever, but it does not start nor run and hasn’t for some time, so it is being listed as a non-running project.” It’s numbers matching and there’s plenty of minor blemishes, but it’s cool and rare!
