A Brief History of the Marque
Manufactured ca 1957-1975
These light motorcycles and mopeds were built by Peripoli, possibly as early as 1957 but certainly by 1959, using engines of Italian origin along with those from JLO and Zundapp.
Laws were introduced in Italy in 1959 limiting mopeds to 40 km/h, and similar restrictions were implemented in France in 1962 (50 km/h). Youngsters soon discovered that it was not a huge task to increase performance, with some of the Giuletta models achieving 85 kh/h. They became the most popular Italian mopeds imported to France.
The Giulietta Super Sport Type GSS TS-50 which had a tubular frame, as did the later GSS3 and GSS4. The SGS was simliar, but with a pressed-metal frame.
