Dall'Oglio Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque
Manufactured 1926-1930, Bologna

Italian manufacturer Guido Dall'Oglio, previously of GD which he founded with Ghirardi, built distinctive 123cc two-strokes in Bologna from 1926 to 1930. The horizontal engines were fitted with a bronze head on a cast iron barrel.

It was hoped that these new machines would be a considerable improvement on the GD, and in many ways they were - better handling and more power - but they suffered heating problems.
