Manufactured 1923-1938 in Bolgna
Founded by Guido Dell'Oglio.
In 1926 they were building 5 different versions of their horizontal twostroke, one of which they raced at the Monza Grand Prix.
The following year they introduced a 4-speed 250cc vertical twin, and 1930 saw the introduction of 175cc and 350cc four-stroke models. The 175 was supplied CM who sold it as the GD70.
Included in the range were light twostrokes of 100cc. Production appears to have ceased in 1938 but may have continued into the war years.

Hello, I have one of the moto GD. Where I can find spare parts for it? I am from Slovenia
Thank you, Matej
Thank you for your fast work. I have two pictures of that moto. You can see, that the reservoar and front light are not original. I dont know of other parts. The frame is a litle bit modyfied. I have the book Moto GD l'aquila a due tempi. From that book i think that it may be tipo Monza - modelo S.S.1 on the page 77.
Thank you, Matej
