Marchitelli Gone-With-the-Wind

A Brief History of the Italian Marque

The Meccaniche di Precisione company was formed by Paolo Marchitelli with headquarters at via Cucchiari 21, Milan. Shortly after the war they constructed a motorized bicycle wheel branded MP and advertised with the phrase "Via col Vento" (Gone with the Wind), and "the engine which cannot be seen."

This was a 43cc twostroke, the weight of the complete wheel being 8kg.
