additional information
Galimberti 350
A little more information about the Galimberti I own. The sidecar fitted is a Longhi and the story about the Galimberti brothers from Milano

...thank you so much for publishing my findings. After about 10 years I still have not come across another Galimberti....
The 4 volume encyclopedia is: Moto Italiane / I primi 50 anni 1895-1945 by Ing. Stefano Milani published by MOTONE/PAVIA
Before the second world war there were over a thousand.... motorcycle manufacturers in Italy, unbelievable.

Best regards, Laurent

Italian side car
I bought a beautiful bike..a galimberti side car from 1936 fitted with a jap 350 ohv engine. The only thing I know is that Galimberti was taking Maffei bikes and improved them between 1933 and 1935. What do you know????

Galimberti is not listed in Tragatsch, but there is a listing for Maffeis. Ed.

If you have a query about Galimberti motorcycles, or have some information to add about these classic Italian machines, please contact us
