TGM Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured: 1974-83*
Terzi Giovanni Marchesini
TGM Moto
Via S.Anna 7
Parma Italy Founded by Terzi and Marchesini in Parma, the company built small motocross machines with modified 50cc Sachs engines. Early results were promising, and in 1973 a 125 cc motocross bike was released. In 1975 the models were further improved and Hiro engines were fitted, followed by a 250cc Villa-powered machine and a 125 enduro. A 400cc MX machine and Minarelli-powered 80cc bikes were also offered, and in 1983 they formed a relationship with Cagiva supplying them a variety of machines until 1985, when they closed the TGM brand and formed a new company, Sanbarnaba.

The company fielded machines in the 125 class of 1978 World Motocross Championships.

Notes: Some sources give manufacturing dates as 1973-1985.
