Condition: For restoration - Registration papers: with Italian registration - Location: Italy (South)

It all started with Giuseppe Bianchi building bicycles.
Born in Florence over a hundred years ago. Then his son Enzo met Arrigo Tosi during his military service, married his sister Elda and they decided to work together.
The company, after more than 100 years from its foundation, is still the protagonist of the two-wheelers.

At the beginning of this decade, the historic plant in via Bellariva, now inadequate, was left to move to Osmannoro. In 1966 a terrible flood inundated Florence and caused serious damages also to Beta, which restarted its activity in a very short time. The production of the engines designed by the new internal group of technicians began.

Vintage Beta moped.
This motorcycle has been standing still for a long time, because it was closed in a warehouse.
You just need to replace the spark plugs, because it started smoothly.

2-stroke engine.
1 cylinder.
Diameter: 38.
Stroke: 42.
4-speed transmission.

Original Beta engine and parts.

Also the front inner tube must be replaced.

I left it in this condition without replacing anything to preserve its value.
Obviously, it needs an inspection, because it has been standing still for a long time.

The buyer will have to arrange the shipment or the collection in Italy (Palermo).
