of story above all Italian motorcycle. Compliments for the beautiful site
for the Italian bikes. I write you to give you some useful news. You excuse
me for my bad English.
Astoria (1947-1958) were designed and produced in Milan by ex-racer Virginio Fieschi with the collaboration of Alfredo Bianchi, planner of engines for Parilla and Aermacchi, built nice two stroke 160 cc and ohv singles from 124 to 246 cc. Produced also an ohc 174 cc and a twin cylinder 500. The Astoria used also Villiers engines for a model produced in 1950 only.
