Chiorda Motorcycles and Mopeds

A Brief History of the Marque

Built in Bergamo 1952-1957

Made bicycles, motorcycles and mopeds. The firm was acquired by by Bianchi.

Later models include:
1972 Chiorda MO Gyromat 48cc.
1970 Chiorda SS Mirage 50cc, Commando 50 and 1971 GT, 72 Mirage, most if not all with Minarelli engines, however several sources mention them being fitted with Morini Franco engines.

These were probably built when Bianchi owned the the Chiorda brand.

Ozebook has an entry on this marque

Also mentioned as a French motorcycle, but this is quite possibly a mistake.
