C.1965 ITALJET 49CC SPORTS ROADSTER (LOT 510)
FRAME NO. 25833
ENGINE NO. UNABLE TO LOCATE
Italjet was founded in 1959 by ex-Italian road-race champion Leopoldo Tartarini, a gifted engineer and designer whose many collaborations with Ducati include styling the Darmah range of v-twins. Over the years Italjet used proprietary engines from numerous suppliers including Minarelli, CZ, MZ, Yamaha, and Triumph. Almost every conceivable type of motorcycle was made, including competition and schoolboy models and a succession of stylish scooters. In the 1990s, Italjet launched the Dragster, Formula and Velocifero scooters, and in 1998 an Italjet Formula was exhibited as part of The Art of the Motorcycle exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Apparently original and complete, this rare early Minarelli-engined Italjet is offered for restoration (it should be noted that the carburettor float chamber is damaged). There are no documents with this Lot, which is sold strictly as viewed.

£700 - 1,100
€780 - 1,200
To be sold without reserve

As with all Lots in the Sale, this Lot is sold 'as is/where is' and Bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding.
