Designed and manufactured by Giorgio Mazzilli 1970-1975
An experienced enduro rider, Mazzilli's off-road machines of 49cc to 248cc models included the RSC 125 and the LHS125 enduro. The majority used Sachs engines, an exception being a Jawa-powered 125 constructed in 1972.
In 1965 he built a handful of machines powered by Albert 175cc engines which he and his friends raced with pleasing results. In 1970 production began with 90 off-roaders which were well-received, and another 100 were built in 1971 and again in 1972.
The final batch of 50 bikes, the 5th series, had alloy tanks, Preston Petty guards and a fashionable headlight shell, also of plastic. Production came to a halt in 1976.
The works of Mazzilli are well regarded in the field of off-road moto sport.

Two years ago I sent you a photo my Mazzilli. At this time the bike was not restored.
Today I'm sending 2 pics of the same bike after a complete restoring made by me and Mr. Mazzilli.
All is original and the bike looks like brand new.
