Exceptional volume dedicated to the Gilera motorcycle, one of the oldest Italian motorcycle industries with the history of the human events of its protagonists and the complete cataloging of the models produced.
This book tells the complete history of Moto Guzzi. From Carlo Guzzi’s Tipo GP of 1920, to the MGX-21 Flying Fortress nearly 100 years later, every Moto Guzzi has been unique and charismatic. But the road hasn't always been smooth and Moto Guzzi has survived many ups and downs.
Paolo Martin, an eclectic and brilliant designer who can easily solve every question of a practical nature, is first of all a motorcyclist. And when passion is left free of any preconception, come up Guzzi and Benelli for De Tomaso, the Gilera in the period 1975-85, in addition to bicycles in carbon fiber (mid 80s). This book describes all motorclycles designed by Paolo Martin.
A tribute to Mario Mazzetti, the builder of MM, the legendary Italian make that from its birth in 1924 up to the end of production in 1957 has contributed decisively to making the Italian story of the two wheels on the road and on the track
Authors Enrico Ruffini and Antonio Campigotto reconstruct the production aspects of all C.M models, outlining the protagonists, starting with founder Mario Cavedagna and his technical head, Renato Sceti.
this book has been written during many months of hard work to find and collect testimony, factory documents and exclusive photographs, to tell with precision and detail the extraordinary adventure of this legendary machine that remains to date the only real transposition of the F1 technology to the world of racing motorcycles.
From the street bikes that gave birth to the very notion of the modern superbike to the racing motorcycles that dominated tracks in Great Britain, Europe, and North America since the latter part of the twentieth century, this book runs the full gamut of sportbikes. It’s a collection that demands shelf space in the library of any true motorcycle collector or fan. Published on occasion of the Ducati 90th anniversary.
The second volume deals with the various aspects of the life linked to the initiatives promoted by the factory since the early years: the various disciplines of the Moto Guzzi Group, the different proposals for leisure, the many construction projects that have changed the face of Mandello, the social, health and cultural issues, the summer camps for employees' children, interventions in support of large families or in difficulty. The book was made possible thanks to the contribution of many families, former employees, Italian and foreign guzzisti who provided materials and testimonials.
