These would be fun on some of the winding country roads.

Marvelous antiques.

Dina said...

Nice and basic. Nicely preserved.
Is that a toolbox/glove compartment on top of the gas tank?

I had never heard of this brand before and they remain in business... It must be good bikes! And Italians are great designers!
God bless you!

The Moto Guzzi Normal is a beautiful motorcycle. Appreciate your photo posts. That is also a historic 1938-1941 BMW R 71 behind the Moto Guzzi. This must have been some show.

Taken For Granted - I am not so good with motorcycles, even worse with vintage ones, but it was fascinating!
