Description

**REMAINS AVAILABLE - MARCH AUCTION LOT 14** 1949 Moto Guzzi Aerone

The vendor has kindly supplied the following:

  • Purchased privately and catalogued today as a Moto-Guzzi 'Aerone' this
    motorcycle was supplied by 'Cicli-Moto G Perosoni' of Asti in Piedmont
    North West Italy close to the Moto-Guzzi factory in Mandelo near Lake
    Como
  • In the late 1940s and early 1950s Moto-Guzzi were the 'go to' producers
    of competitive 250 cc motorcycles. In this era Surtees, Hailwood, etc all
    rode them
  • This machine has a number of non standard components including Cylinder head, fast action twist grip assembly
  • This raises the question of whether it might have been one of the 10 (7)
    surplus machines intended for competition but completed as road bikes
    that were disposed of by the factory at the end of 1949
  • I have done some research (See Moto-Guzzi by Mario Colombo, Milani
    1977) but have been unable to conclude as to the machine's exact date of
    manufacture or provenance.
