AT THE INTERNATIONAL COYS EVENT, ORGANISED AS PART OF THE 2016 CAROLE NASH MCN LONDON MOTORCYCLE SHOW, SIX VINTAGE MOTO GUZZI BIKES WENT UNDER THE HAMMER. A REPRODUCTION 8-CYLINDER GUZZI FROM 1956 FETCHED A STUNNING PRICE OF MORE THAN 240,000 EURO!
The Moto Guzzi bikes attracted strong interest, particularly the sports and racing models. One of the most surprising moments came with a final bid of 196,250 pounds for a perfect reproduction of the Moto Guzzi V8 500 GP from 1956, built fifteen years ago by a former Mandello mechanic! The sound of the engine is obviously a celestial sound as far as Guzzi fanatics are concerned.
Another Moto Guzzi superstar at the auction was a Guzzi V7 Sport original from 1972, a Daytona winner: 13,400 pounds.
Even more impressive was a 500 bicilindrica GP original from 1951, which fetched 111,250 pounds.
