The business at via Felice Cavallotti, 14 in Vittorio Veneto was founded by Teodoro Carnielli in 1931 and produced many different motorcycles powered by JAP 175 and 200 cc engines, 500cc and 250 Rudge Python powerplants, and others with Kuchen 350 and 500cc engines. Between 1952 and 1953 they built 50cc mopeds and light motorcycles with 75, 98 and 125cc twostroke engines, and also a 98cc NSU-powered motofurgone. They also used NSU engines in Vittoria 125cc motorcycles and scooters.
In the 1920s Carnielli built Bottecchia bicycles, named for a cyclist who won the Tour de France twice.
Postwar, they fitted fitted Vittoria mopeds with 48 cc Lambretta engines (1957) and also built a sports machine with an NSU engine.
1968 saw the appearance of the famous Motograziella, a foldable minibike with a Sachs 50cc engine which was very successful and remained on the market until the 1980s (or, according to one source 1979).
Carnielli Models included Vittoria 65cc 1950-1952 and Vittoria 125cc 1950-1953

1978 Graziella found
I´ve just re-discover the wonderful Graziella scooters thanks to my father who was kind enough to five me his old minibike so that I can restore it. He bought new it in 1978 for 42.000 pts (like €400) It was used as an auxiliary vehicle for his boat trips in the Costa Brava. It is green (looks like a grass hooper) and complete including the owners manual and original garantee. I´m willing to share copies of the above with other enthusiasts. I will post some pics as soon as it gets home (By sept 10)

Vittoria Lambretta 48
Hello I have a moped Vittoria Lambretta 48 but don't have any history on it, if you can help please send me an e-mail and I will send photos.
I have been told that it was especially built by Lambretta for a race in Portugal and only a few were built, Portugal was the biggest market in Europe in 1950s because of there Colony's, Lambretta built these as to prove their reliability and where hoping that Portugal would put in some orders for the new Lambretta 48, if this is true I do not know but this is what I was told in Portugal.
Re the Lambretta 48 Vittoria, I came across this http://www.ideahobby.it/dbasp-motoaz/MotoAZ.asp?id=00371&tab=TabB&src=
It could be Carnielli
The page says in part, "In 1957, it mounts on the ciclomotori Vittoria also the motors of the Lambretta of 48 cc and produces a ciclomotore in sport version christened Solitude, with motor NSU." Ed.

Hi, another humble moped fan in search of a head lamp and cover with speedo for my 1972 Moto Graziella! Any ideas, anyone? Thanks, Nick d.
Here we are, the Moto Graziella Tipo Cheeky Boy. I kid you not! You can see what I mean about the head light - that reversing light is probably from the same era but it has to go!
Any help much appreciated.
Feb 23 2006
I found a photo of a Moto Graziella with the correct head light if this helps! It's a bit cluttered but the bike is in use as a clothes horse at the moment! It's for sale at around £400 if it appeals to anyone and is in superb condition. Just wish it was mine!

Are you able to tell me where I can purchase the spare parts. -- Many thanks -- Dario Bearzatto -- adcab at bigpond dot com

March 28, 2001
I enjoyed your page and found out, that you might need some information.
But I am also looking for information about Belgian motorcycles and mopeds, esp. FLANDRIA and SUPERIA. So if you have any, let me know...
The promised information concerns CARNIELLI / ITALY:
In 1967 the Italian brand CARNIELLI introduced a completely new folding 50ccm motorcycle named MOTOGRAZIELLA. They made use of the German SACHS 502 engine in at least 2 different versions, so they could offer a version with a top speed of 25 and another with 40 km/h. Surprising was the use of only 8 inch small tyres and the very short length of only 1,1 m. To build such a small vehicle, they used a quite unique way of steering.
Three different colors are knows: Blue, green and red are the body colors (the plastic body parts are molded in these colors), the metal frame is always white.
Soon after the MOTOGRAZIELLA was introduced, CARNIELLI offered another version, which had rear spring suspension.
The production must have ceased in 1979, since SACHS discontinued the 502 engine.
Technical Data (of the German versions)
Sachs 502/1B Ausf. C
1.4 (at 3750 rpm)
ca. 1,4 litres/100 km
1,8 (at 4500 rpm)
ca. 1,6 litres/100 km
I try to add two scans taken from a German advertisement of the MOTOGRAZIELLA mopeds. They were imported from about 1968 to 1979 to Germany by GOLD-RAD (a German factory to bicycles; they used to build 50ccm mopeds in the 50´s I guess, too) of Cologne.
I hope you can make some use of this, please let me know. -- wiesenberg at ram.rwth-aachen.de
