Description

c.1965 Moto Guzzi 192cc Erculino
Frame no. H 62LM 1GM 1633 OM
Engine no. H 62LM 1GM 1633 OM

Like Velocette's LE, Moto Guzzi's Galletto (cockerell) was intended to offer scooter-type weather protection and comfort allied to the superior handling qualities of a true motorcycle. In keeping with Guzzi tradition, the Galletto was powered by an overhead-valve, air-cooled 'flat single' with outside flywheel. Launched in March 1950 in 160cc/three-speed form, the Galletto was upgraded to 175cc and four speeds in 1952 and then to 192cc in 1954. An interesting spin-off was the Erculino (Hercules) a commercial three-wheeler that combined the Galletto's front section with a rear chassis and pickup-type body. The Erculino was produced up to 1970. The example offered here is one of the updated type introduced in 1959, which has a load carrying capacity of 590kg. Discovered in a barn in Wales, the machine is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this Lot.
