Rare Italian – 1969 Romeo Sprint Super Sport

In Italy, Small Displacement by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: This Romeo did not meet reserve despite 16 bids up to $1,575 on eBay.

Founded by Eduardo Po, Moto Romeo was an italian manufacturer based out of Modena from 1969 to 1975 that utilized Minarelli engines. In 1976, Eduardo’s sons took over and renamed the company Motrom. They initially wanted to call it “Motom” as a blend of Moto Romeo, but the name was already in use by a motorcycle manufacturer.

This example is being offered by Michael Harper, who notes that it is equipped with rearsets and dual front brakes. The 49cc Minarelli 2-stroke is paired with a 4-speed transmission, and it’s a runner. For more information on Romeo, check out Sheldon’s EMU.

There’s some cosmetic wear but I hope the next owner keeps the patina. Find this Romeo for sale in Tarzana, California with bidding up to $1,525 and the reserve not yet met
