If this bike is as described in the listing, it is an original Bultaco works racer on offer for the first time by its original rider, Ginger Molloy! The description of the bike is very short, but the pictures are mouthwatering. There is not a word strong enough for how much we want this bike. Did we mention that Molloy rode this bike to a first place victory in the 1966 Ulster Grand Prix? Find it here on eBay in Huntly, New Zealand. Special thanks to TY reader Reilly B. for this submission!
The Italian motorcycle industry is a fascinating one with several very distinct eras. It is interesting to see these models for sale side-by-side, as the two periods they represent could not be more different. The Gilera and the Guzzi are from the golden years of small displacement motorsport, while the Ducati twenty years newer and the result of the major cultural shifts which took place in that time. All are available separately on eBay by the same seller in Rancho Palos Verdes, Califorian at the following links:
The 1958 Gilera Rossa Extra is interesting in that it, at 175cc, boasts a higher displacement than many other small Gilera singles of the era (not including the older Saturno-based models). The seller states that it is Giro legal, and we imagine this would be a great bike for it. These are rare Stateside, and this one has been restored to a very high degree.
This pair of Lambretta Li150 scooters is being offered separately by the same seller. Both run well, with recent servicing including updates to electronic ignition. The cream/orange model is a 1969 with long California history and Clubman-style exhaust. The white/red model is a 1966 with more patina but also original paint and decals. They are available in Oakland, California for $3750 and $3900 respectively.
