Evans Motorized Bicycles (Italy)

A Brief History of the Italian Marque

Evans (Italia) moto d'epoca

Negli anni Venti la ditta di E. Longoni, importa e commercializza i motori americani Evans di 100 cc a due tempi, accensione a magnete e trasmissione a cinghia.

Il motore viene venduto per equipaggiare biciclette ma risulta che con questo marchio vengano anche costruite biciclette a motore complete che ottengono un buon successo commerciale.

In the twenties the firm of E. Longoni was importing and selling American Evans 100cc twostroke engines, magneto ignition and belt drive.

The engine was sold to equip bicycles but it appears Longoni also built complete motorized bicycles under the same brand.

They were commercially successful.
