Snippets
There appears to be a close relationship with Atala (possibly the same company). Some models possibly use Minarelli engines, but certainly they also built their own - (or perhaps rebadged them...?)

Rizzato Califfone
I get a totally new Rizzato Califfone some days ago and try to get information about it.
It seem to be a very good brand, manufacturing fom 1956 to 1999. Them they stoped with motorcycles and follow with bikes only. The brand was ATALA and they are at www.atalait, but do not supply any information about motorcycles.
It seems that somebody try to assembly in /brasil and you can get some califfone here.
Most of them are not working because of absolute lack of technical info or spares.
It seems that situation is the same all over the word.
If some body can get manuals or parts information , will be very good.

I am sending you a Califfone photo to include if possible.

An Italian band is named Califfo De Luxe www.califfodeluxe.it


Date: Mon, 04 Apr 2005
subject: Rizzato Califfo Deluxe Moped
Email: seashelter at dccnetimg
message: We have the above, only other information shown is Engine 49 cc, Tires 2-1/4-16 T60--thought it was manufactured in late 1960's but unsure of that and its possible worth to a collector--all original parts intact and runs well.
Could you please let us know where further identification re serial number, etc. may be found on the moped.
Thanks so much,
Patricia & Doug.

..looks very much the 1978 Califfo pictured on your web site--it is turquoise in colour.


There will certainly be a number stamped on the engine somewhere, perhaps at the front below the barrel, or underneath the carburettor area. Also look below each of the engine covers.

The frame number may be on the steering head, or on the front downtube near the fuel tank. Ed. Hi again:  Number on frame is 2076---5B is on engine cover, Dellorto SHA14-12 on carburetor.
Thanks for your continuing help,
Patricia.

Hi,
My nephew just purchased a 1981 Rizzato Califo 80 moped in really good condition. However I would like to get some technical information so I can service it when it needs it. I need the spark plug gap, point gap (if it has them and where they are located), what kind of oil to use for the fuel, what other types of oil is used in the engine and where can I find parts for this if needed. Would appreciate any help.  --  Thanks, Lee  -- Opel72gt at aolimg

Hi,
I bought a Rizzato Califfo moped at a yard sale last summer. It is a 1978 with engine type 119. It runs great-- starts every time. Everything seems to be original on it. I bought it from a lady who I believe bought it new in Indiana (I'm in NY). I do have the operating owner's manual. If anyone needs any information from the manual, I'd be glad to answer questions at this email: browneyes88_9 at yahooimg .
Thanks,  --  Laura

Hello
I just picked up a C RIZZATO moped with the name IRIS on the back of the seat, the bike is in ruff condition with the muffler, engine covers missing. The motor turns over. It should make a good parts bike , if you are interested please e-mail me . --  przybilla at gate-way.net --  Roy


June 14, 2001
Here are some pics for your web page. I purchased the pair two weeks ago, from an ad in local paper. These two Califfo deluxes by Cesare Rizzato were made in May of 1980 and are all original except for the seats (motobecane). If anyone knows where I can get used parts for bikes like these please e-mail me. They are great mopeds. I had never heard of them before I bought these, but they have impressed me. I don't know how many of this model were made but both of these have serial numbers below 2500. More literature should be available on these mopeds. If you know where I can get some let me know. Thanx, Jason  --  Jason W Vaughn  -- jwv123lmnop at junoimg
