Legnano Motorcycles & Mopeds

A Brief History of the Marque

The company was founded in 1932 by Emilio Bozzi and based in Milan, initially as a bicycle producer.

From 1954 they built attractive lightweights using mostly Sachs, Garelli Mosquito & Minarelli engines, and sometimes DEMM. The 1957 49cc model, which was exported to Argentina had a 49cc DEMM 3M engine and a Del'orto 14.12s carburettor. The Super Sport of 1964 had a large sculptured tank, clipon handlebars, dual rear shock absorbers and telescopic forks.

A 175cc cross model was introduced at the 1967 Milan Show, and 1971 saw a very attractive compact moped named the Mini Mars which had a horizontal engine and small composite wheels.

Legnano also distributed locally produced machines in Argentina, some with Tehuelche OHC engines.

More about Demm
I came from Argentina and, when I was young, I remember a friend of mine having a Legnano 48cc year 1958 with a Demm engine. There was a beautiful bike, and seeing the site, I found her very similar with the Capri, which illustrate the article. I have to say about Legnano, there were one of the finest brand of bicycles in this time in my country. I presume, due a marketing reasons, what the Capri was put in the market as Legnano.
