1954 MASERATI TIPO 160/T4 (LOT 659)
FRAME NO. 2069
Contrary to popular belief, Maserati motorcycles were not manufactured at the eponymous car-maker's Modena factory but by another subsidiary of the Orsi Group parent company, Fabbrica Candele e Accumulatori Maserati (FCAM), which manufactured spark plugs and other automotive electrical components. Demand for two-wheeled transportation was booming in post-WW2 Italy, prompting FCAM to purchase Italmoto, a small independent manufacturer in Bologna, in 1953. Production was transferred to FCAM's factory in Modena and the company reconstituted as Maserati Candele, Accumulatori e Moto, producing one of Italmoto's existing designs, a 158cc overhead-valve four-stroke single, while new Maserati-designed models were developed. Renamed the Tipo 160/T4, the 158cc model would remain in the Maserati line-up until motorcycle production ceased in 1959, latterly alongside the company's only other four-stroke model, the 250/T4. A compact lightweight of sporting appearance, the Tipo 160 produced its maximum output of 7.5bhp at 5,500rpm and was good for a top speed of around 65mph. Restored by a specialist, this beautiful Maserati motorcycle is offered with an old Italian registration document (issued 1979) and a manufacturer's range brochure in colour. A total of 4,930km (presumably since restoration) is showing on the odometer.

£6,000 - 10,000
€6,700 - 11,000
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.
