This second volume on the history of the Bolognese motorcycle industry has been written and illustrated once more with the collaboration of the Museo del Patrimonio del Comune di Bologna (the Patrimony Museum of the Bologna City Council) to coincide with an exhibition on the subject. The book documents the difficult moments the companies and small local constructors faced, among them the financial straits of the market and the constraints imposed by the autonomy of those years, with doggedness, vitality and surprising inventiveness. As well as the production of motorcycles, this is the period in which the more economical means of three-wheel transport imposed themselves on the market. The motorbikes, three-wheeled vehicles and engines in the Bologna exhibition, which come from private collections, are presented in this book with a detailed series of photographs, while motorcycle history enthusiasts will find invaluable information and rare illustrations relative to the 16 marques, including Augusta, F.I.A.B., C.M., DEMM-S.CM.E.R.A., F.B., G.D., M.M., Moto Morini and others. The text is bi-lingual, precise and interesting and is published together with a wealth of documentation plus 200 pictures of the period.

MOTO BOLOGNESI DEL DOPOGUERRA / BOLOGNA POSTWAR MOTORCYCLES

Following the Second World War, Italy was faced with the enormous challenge of reconstructing the nation’s social, political and economic fabric. One of the most remarkable success stories was seen in the field of miniature internal combustion engines to be fitted to bicycles or in dedicated frames. Low prices guaranteed their immediate success and Bologna played a full part in the phenomenon: Ducati, for example, launched the Cucciolo, one of the artificers of the “motorization” of the Italian people. However, there were no less than 49 Bologna-based firms active in that period, in many cases “shooting stars” soon destined to disappear. Among the motorcycle constructors were M.M. and C.M. which had a glorious history, while Moto Morini and F.B-Mondial achieved sporting success in Italy and abroad. Others such as Cimatti, Malaguti, Marzocchi, Testi and Verlicchi began to conquer a significant share of the market. Some of these marques are still successful on the global market today. This book presents 50 biographies of the Bologna-based manufacturers, with over 300 images, many previously unpublished, as well as a major section entitled “Collecting” with photographs and technical details of all the most important bikes of the time.

Made in collaboration with the Bologna Metropolitan Museum of Industrial Patrimony the book is the first in a series of publications that will trace the history of a dynamic and modern motorcycle industry such as that of the Bologna area in Italy, land of engines par excellence.

Illustrated with a detailed collection of photographs of motorcycles, engines and other objects made available by private collectors, the book covers the history of the small companies that helped make up the industrial fabric of the area. Here the collector will find valuable information and pictures of motorbike brands including ABRA, Aquila, Beyer, Diana, Augusta-Fiab, Dall’Oglio, De Togni, G.D., M.B.R., R.A., Villani and others. The bi-lingual text in Italian and English is blended with a wealth of illustrations of both the period concerned and especially commissioned modern studio photographs.
