Attolini Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Italian Marque

Made in Spineda, Cremona between 1920 and 1923*, Gustavo Attolini's small factory utilized 269cc Villiers two-strokes and later a 330cc two-stroke engine possibly of its own construction. Notable in the day was the use of rear suspension.

Production continued for two or three years. Gustavo's son Gino raced locally in Milan motorcycle club events, and is recorded as having won a podium finish in Lombardy.

* Sources vary, dates could be 1921-1924.
