Lodola dreaming

If the story of riding a Moto Guzzi Lodola in the Dolomites in the latest issues of Benzina has got you fantasising about doing the same, there's good news: this lovely Lodola's for sale at Moto Corsa. Under three grand, and in fabulous order, despite completing three Motogiros. So, yes it's the vintage class-eligible, earlier ohc 175, rather than the later pushrod 235cc version that we've featured. The last bike designed by Carlo Guzzi himself, so a nice bit of history. Moto Coras also have a Guzzi 650 TT, the adventure bike that Guzzi used to enter the Paris Dakar, as seen in issue six. seems like a ride out waiting to happen - they're at Three Legged Cross, just outside Ringwood.

  1. Bautiful, but for that speedo!
    Loving the forward canted engine and all those beautiful curves - but then you climb on board and are confronted with a squared off speedo that you can't ignore. Just plain wrong - should have been round or, preferably, an oval to mirror the shape of the surround. Was it the Morris Marina that had a square steering wheel. Aagh.
