Moto BM Motorcycles
A Brief History of the Marque: BM by Mario Bonvicini
Prior to WWII, Mario Bonvicini had been a successful motorcycle racer.
The motorcycles he produced after the war had engines from ILO
and NSU, as well as some of his own design. Production
included 50cc and 175cc racing machines with frames by Verlicchi, and also
Built in Bologna from 1952 until 1988, some of the factory output was
marketed in Germany under the Tornax banner. Minarelli
engines were fitted to the Pokerino scooter of 1963.
BM Bonvicini & Moto BM appear to be the same marque. Bonvinci models
include the Jaguarino Turismo and the Jaguarino Cros, both with twostroke
engines of 48cc
Bonvinci also built the Yankee Boss for Yankee Motors of Schenectady, New York.
* One source says founded 1952.
NB. Henshaw lists an earlier BM, Italy 1928-1931, a collaboration between Antonio Baudi and sidecar maker Meldi using JAP OHV 500cc engines.

Information concerning "boss" mini bike
Bonvicini? Moto BM?
I was given a mini bike and I was hoping to get an idea of how much
it is worth. It reads "Moto BM Bologna Italy" on the side of the motor
and the back of the seat. It was made by Bonvicini and it is called "boss".
I have the owners manual and the motor is a Motori Morini Franco (super
sport turbo 48cc). The bike is in fair/good condition and runs awesome.
Can someone help me with its value? Thank you.
