Testi History in Brief

The Bologna factory began manufacture of 49cc lightweights in 1951 with Sachs engines, later using both DEMM and FB-Minarelli 49cc two-strokes. They also built a 147cc Sachs engined motorcycle to extend their range of mopeds, mofas and miniscooters. 

There was a collaboration with the French company Gitane, with machines marketed as the Gitane-Testi,, and also with the Swedish Standard concern.

    Seems to be a rather rare little beastie. Fitting electrtics within the fuel tank does not sound like a wonderful idea, but then, BMW have done so very successfully.

Les Gitane de mon pere. (ISBN-10: 2726886558)
La Gitane Testi Champion Super, née en Italie, fera rêver la jeunesse française des années 1970, grâce à sa ligne racée et à sa conception digne d'une véritable moto. Mais la marque Gitane a une histoire ! Créée en 1928 par Marcel Brunelière, elle va asseoir sa réputation sur une production de cycles de qualité, suivie par un fort développement de l'entreprise avec l'apparition, dans les années 1950, d'une large gamme de cyclomoteurs et motocyclettes. La petite reine se fera remarquer également par ses exploits sportifs. Jacques Anquetil, Lucien Aimar, Lucien Van Impe, Bernard Hinault et Laurent Fignon remporteront dix fois le Tour de France au guidon de vélos Gitane. Championnats du monde, record de vitesse à plus de 200 km/h, rien n'arrête la Gitane. Retrouvez, dans ce livre, une présentation exhaustive des "motorisés", un aperçu de la variété de production de bicyclettes et une évocation des principaux succès sportifs décrochés au guidon de vélos Gitane.

A rather clumsy translation:
The Gitane Testi Super Champion, made in Italy, was the dream of French youth in the 1970s thanks to its racy lines and its design worthy of a genuine motorcycle. But the Gitane marque has a history! Created in 1928 by Marcel Brunelière, it developed a reputation on a production of quality cycles, followed by a strong development of the company with the appearance, in the years 1950, of a broad range of auto-cycles and motor cycles. The small queen will point out herself also by her sporting exploits. Jacques Anquetil, Lucien Aimar, Lucien Van Impe, Bernard Hinault and Laurent Fignon will gain ten times the Tour de France to the handlebar of Gitane bicycles. Championships of the world, record from speed to more than 200 km/h, nothing stops the Gitane. Find, in this book, an exhaustive presentation of "motorized", an outline of the variety of production of bicycles and an evocation of the principal sporting successes achived by Gitane cycles.

Stockholm
.............
I hereby send some pictures on my Telstar.What I am searching for is the backlight complete or just the lens.The other thing I am looking for is the speed meter complete with wire and "wheel gear" The last thing is the scew holding the sideplate on the toolbox.It should be with a triangel head.
Best Regard
Staffan 

If there are any numbers on the tail light they would prove helpful, along with the brand - CEV? Also any information you have on the speedometer and drive - Veglia?On tail light lens it stands: Aprilia IGM 2073 LP,on the circular part on the lens it standsAprilia IGM 2860 C2 also 036825.
About the speedmeter I dont know.The diameter should be 52mm for the instument and the "wheelgear" must be rather big to fit.Is it some figures you want me to messure about the mid of the wheel?

I remember seeing Testi motorcycles only once, when a local shop in Long Beach California had them for sale for a very short time in the early 1960's. My friend, Dick Hewitt, who went with me to look at them just for fun (we were Triumph riders at the time) immediately came up with an advertising slogan for them that I never forgot....."Ride the Testi-It's a ball"!!! -- sspika at greeleynetdot com

Some years ago in 1975, at age of 16, I was looking for a little motorcycle here in Austria. There were a lot of Puch (of course) Zündapp, Hercules, Ktm, some Kreidler but they all looked like "Mopeds". Then, at hollydays with my parents in Italy I saw al little racebike called TESTI. It looked like a real little motorbike an I loved it at first sight. We had lovely yerars together - and we still have! After 24 years I know her very well, my little Testi with its 50 ccm Minarelli engine ......
