VIEWING BY APPOINTMENT ONLY PLEASE.

- This Airone Sport was manufactured in 1952 and according to the original Italian registration books I have for the motorcycle, it was first licensed in the Province of Vicenza, north-east Italy, on July 20th 1953.  It was to remain in the Province of Vicenza for the rest of its life in Italy.
- The first owner appears to be a Bruno Bizzotto of Rosa, a small town near Bassano del Grappa, and he retained the Airone until September 1959 when it was bought by someone in Lusiana.  They sold it in October 1968 to someone in Molvena.
- The motorcycle appears to have remained in regular use throughout the 1960's and 1970's, the last licence stamp in the registration book being from July 1978.  It is believed it was stored from around then until some time in the early-to-mid 2000's.
- In June 2006 the fully restored and gleaming Moto Guzzi was registered with the Italian Motorcycle Federation National Historic Register (FMI), and issued with a certificate that stated it had been restored to its correct original specification.  It is presumed that this certification was carried out soon after the restoration had been completed.  Photographs on file show the Airone before the restoration was started and it appears to be in remarkably complete condition, despite the thick layer of dust all over it!
- I am not sure who owned the motorcycle when it was restored, but in November 2015 a Fabio Vivian of Marostica, in the Province of Vicenza, sold it to someone in Trento, located in a neighbouring Province to Vicenza.  This person was acting on behalf of an old school friend of theirs who had lived in England for many years, and in March 2016 the motorcycle was transported to their friend in Surrey, England, for use as a display ornament within their home.  I later acquired the motorcycle from them.
- Despite having been restored about eleven years ago and enjoyed since, this fabulous looking machine is in superb condition.
