Mello Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured: 1931-1948

The brothers Albino and Giuseppe Mello built their first motorcycle in 1931, in Valle Mosso (Biella), using JAP 250cc engines. Later models used Rudge and Mercury engines of 350 and 500cc. During the war they suspended motorcycle production, surviving as a manufacturer of bicycles.

Immediately after the war they used war surplus from their warehouses to assemble motorcycles fitted with Triumph engines and gearboxes.

There is also mention of a 175cc engine with dual exhausts and a three-speed gearbox.

In total Mello built around 145 motorcycles of various displacements.
