Garlaschelli Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Italian Marque

Angelo Garlaschelli of Milano produced light motorcycles from 1922 to 1927. These were powered by their own two-stroke engines of 65, 123 and 173cc, and there was also a sports machine for the 175 class with an overhead valve engine.

Luigi Parravicini rode a 125cc Garlaschelli to victory in the 1923 Italian Championship, and placed 3rd in the Giro di Lombardia the same year.

Also referred to as VVV Garlaschelli (VVV = Veni Vidi Vici)
