Considered the first Italian motorcycle, this machine was built in Padua by Professor Enrico Bernardi Zeno. It was a four-stroke engine on a trailer attached to a conventional bicycle, known as a rimorchietto a motore .

There is a Bernardi Motor Attachment of 1893 pictured at Murray Barnard's site.
