Atala Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Italian Marque
Manufactured Italy 1924-1934 & 1954-1987 [1]

Italian bicycle factory Atala began producing motorcycles in 1923 with sidevalve and OHV JAP and Blackburne engines of 174cc to 496cc, and mostly English ancillaries.

After the war they built many motorcycle components as well as a range of lightweights including mopeds and scooters of 49cc, 69cc, 98cc and 124cc using Minarelli engines and probably other brands. It is believed that scooter production ceased around 1987. The parent company was Rizzato, which bought the Atala company in the 1930s.

Atala Models include:

175cc 1926-1930
250cc 1926-1930
350cc 1927-1930

I have an Atala 112 race bike that raced at the Chilton enduro alongside the works itoms and Motoms with Bill ivy and the simmonds brothers. Unfortunately the engine has been stripped and I need a donor engine to be able to restore the bike any help would be welcome even an exploded diag of the engine or dare I say a manual, the bike originally came from Mars motorcycles in Erith Kent.
