Brief History of the Marque: Moto BM

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 a moped.

Built in Bologna from 1950 until 1988, some of the factory output was marketed in Germany under the banner of Tornax. Minarelli engines are believed to have been fitted to some models.

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

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.

The page on Vintage Motorcycle Valuations may prove helpful.
