OMB Motorcycles (Bologna)

A Brief History of the Italian Marque

Manufactured by O.M.B. (Offcina Meccanica Bazzanese), 1947-1949

Enrico Pedrini, Guerrino Marsigli, Marino Sereni and Claudio Masi were associated with this project.

Address: Bazzano (Bo), Piazza Garibaldi 8 Bologna

The O.M.B. 350 Super Sport was presented at the 1947 Milan Motor Show. It had telescopic forks and rear suspension, and with a compression ratio of 7/1, it delivered 26 bhp at 7,000 rpm, giving a top speed of 140 km/h. It aroused much interest, but they were short of money and were forced to drop the project.

N.B. There is another OMB in Torino.
