04 August 2023 (G.T.) – It’s not just a spectacular location, immersed in a mountain setting of extraordinary beauty. The “Top Mountain Motorcycle Museum”, in Horchgurgul, CrossPoint area, Tirol (Austria), expresses and accurately represents the passion of the owners, twins Attila and Alban Scheiber, for the motorcycle world. And their tenacity. In January 2021, the museum was destroyed by a fire (with the loss of about 300 valuable vintage vehicles, including motorbikes and cars) and in November of the same year, it was rebuilt and expanded, reopening to the international public even richer and more spectacular.
NEW TOP MOUNTAIN - MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM –
MOTORCYCLE EXPERIENCE WORLD.
It offers the visitors who climb to about 2,200 metres above sea level (on motorcycles too) an original experience. The new and expanded display of over 550 motorcycles representing brands from all over the world is a sight to see (with a break in the restaurant and time to relax on the large outdoor patio). And there is one more reason to visit this unique motorcycle museum: the special “Colori d’Italia” (Colours of Italy) display, an exceptional, century-long review of Italian brands, with many sport bikes. Of the 60 models on display, prestigious Moto Guzzi bikes stand out: 1974 Guzzi 750 S; 1952 Airone Militare, 1925 C 4V, a 1951 Guzzino 65; and then there are the 1959 Lodola, the 1971 Stornello, and the 1958 Zigolo; rare 1927 Super Sport 250 and 1934 V500 (with sidecar) and a 1974 V7 850 California. There is also no lack of Aprilias (1989 AF1 125 Replica and 1996 RSW 500-Romboni) and Gileras: 1991 CX 125, 1960 Rossa Super and 1948 Nettuno 240.
“This Moto Guzzi in the company's typical red stands out from the crowd of great motorcycles!”.

It is a rare, nineteen-thirties era Moto Guzzi 250 SS, built to be a race bike. A 1932 version was sold at auction in Donington for $54,000. Info, photos and videoclip here:
