Omer History

Based in Reggio Emilia, near Modena, the company built the Tanga and Skipper, conventional mopeds Vivo, Zoom, Mini Daytona, Mini Vallelunga Cross, and a folding minibike for MV-Agusta.

They used both Minarelli and Franco Morini engines.

It's a forum to allow those interested in Moto Omer to share info etc

From the FB group:

  • "This year, instead of entering the annual Welsh National Rally on my 350 Morini or my Triumph Daytona 675, I entered the Omer. As the date got nearer, I started to think about the reality ? big mileages, awful weather, mountains . . . not a good mix with a 50cc bike. I was certain it would break down. However, the Omer took me 200 miles in 10 hours, crossing and recrossing the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains (at one point I was holding it in first up a mountain road at a constant 7mph and was overtaken by a cyclist)."

Moto Omer Giramondo 1968
My Omer just completed the Welsh National Rally 2010 and gained a Bronze Award! 200 miles in 10 hours non-stop! No breakdowns! 20 mph average - not bad as its top speed is 24 mph and it spent a lot of time in first gear at full throttle at 7mph climbing the Brecon Beacons!

Now fully legal and running on the road. Road registration and legalities including MoT performed by North Leicester Motorcycles. I would like to heartily recommend them to anyone trying to register and run an obscure Italian motorcycle in the UK

I bought it from some guy he said there was only 12 for the canadian army or somthing made but the motor in it was used in other bikes its a 43cc horizontal cyclinder 2 stroke.

A horizontally opposed 43cc two-stroke twin! Does anyone have information on such a device? Ed.
No, that's not what he means at all. It's lay-down single similar to an A100 Suzuki, perhaps.

Omer 50cc sports moped
Hi I have just purchased a 50cc Omer sports moped from about 1970's. It is red in colour with a Minarelli engine in. Does any one have a picture of this bike so I can tank decal details from along with the head light speedo detailing (my decal is worn and headlight missing). Also does any one have a wiring diagram for this bike?
Many thanks

Thanks for taking the time to respond to my request for help with this 1976 Omer I'm going to restore. I have included a picture of it in its current state. I could do with conformation re the headlight ( is it the correct one?) and position of the speedo (in head light or seperate?) etc.... The bike runs fine but it will have a full rebuild over the winter.
I have also included a picture of a Beamish (1980) that I have just rebuilt from a box of bits I purchased, along with a 65 Bultaco Sherpa T model 10 (also in bits to be rebuilt soon). The pic may be of use for your excellent picture bank you have on your web site.
Keep up the good work and again many thanks for your help!
Best wishes

RE: OMER - Reply to Hans RudolfIneichen
The Encyclopedia of the Motorcycle - Hugo Wilson: OMER: - 1968 to 1981 built Minarelli and Morini engined mopeds in small numbers.

Thats it....

I have recently purchased an Omer motorcycle!. It is approximately half a metre tall and a metre long. it has a red tubular frame and small white 2 litre tank. It also has a collapsible type steering column. Any idea of what model it is, date of manufacture etc?? any help would be extremely helpful. -- Yours -- Jonathan Bird -- bill.bird at

I have searched for the E-Mail-address or / and post-address of the supplier of my motorcycle: OMER.
On the Label I can see: Reggio Emilia Italy, OMER S.R.L.
