Must agree with Rob … where's the pics.
Olmo's, Gloria's, Breda, Pirotta, Rubino, Pegaso, Olympi, Motoflex, Ardito. I know of quite a few Italian bike manufacturers (there have been over 100 different ones) but can't recall these bikes.

Must have picked up some pushies

Bianchi started with motorised bicycles in 1897 and ceased making motorbikes in 1967.
Olmo were around from 1952 - 1961 producing lightweight bikes and mopeds.
Gloria 1948-1955. 48 cc two stroke engine mounted directly on the swing arm
Breda 1946-1951. motorised bicycles with their own 65 cc two stroke engine
Pirotta 1949-1955. 49 cc bicyclee engines and later 158 cc ohv two storke motorbikes

That's pretty close. The one I have is a newer model. My sister bought it new in 1977. It's been sitting in one garage or another since. It probably has 100 miles on it and the only flaw is a broken tail light.

Eric, there has to be a story that goes with finding that collection.
Yes absolutely, it would be very interesting to hear it.

Thank you for the photos :yo: - very, very cool indeed, you'll certainly have plenty on your hands & are at no risk of being bored and that's always a good very thing. :)

Eric, there has to be a story that goes with finding that collection.
An Italian friend of my,who lives in my hometown asked me to go with him to Italy.
He has an old friend (more than 70years old) who have many old bikes.
My friend was there several times before to collect Ducati's,most 48cc Cucciolo's but also 60 and 65 cc.He sell's them here in Holland.
So I went there and I felt like a boy in a candystore:mouthwate
The old man had more then 150 bikes,restored and not restored,for sale.If I had the money I would buy them all:love: but I stopped with 25.
I also have a wife at home,she could have become angry:thewife:
Some bikes stay here in the collection,but some may go.
So,this winter I have plenty to do:later:
ps I also met a friend of my Italian friend who have many Ducati's
shall I post some pic's of it?

What a great acquisition. All of these Moped are very nice

You wrote that there were some Laverda in the batch

Here are two sites that might interest you :

I like the 1951 75 cc Sport and the 1961 Laverdino 2-stroke moped ...

Great story Eric - Go to Italy with friend, see 150 bikes, buy 25!!

I absolutely love it :yo: You have a wife that's even more understanding than mine :jsm:

I love the Laverda museum link you put up, what impresses me most is how it came together, it is incredible to see what a group of truly passionate, devoted and like minded people can achieve when they come together with a common goal, that gets my utmost respect - Bravo to all those guys.

You will be VERY busy this winter of that there is absolutely no doubt - that's what makes life great :)
