Moto Guzzi Airone Sport 250

 

 

 

Affectionately known as a “Bacon Slicer “ due to the exposed open flywheel, the little brother of the 500cc Falcon, 

Guzzi hand made these exquisite machines on the banks of Lake Como in Italy from 1939 to 1957 

In the early 1950’s the lightweight 250 Airone (Heron) sport was one of the most expensive motorbikes on the market 

costing slightly more that a Triumph Speed Twin and over 50-% more than a BSA 250 of it’s day. 

The particular machine being one of the last ever produced was imported into England in 1990. 

Subject to a total rebuild mechanically and full restoration by the Marque Specialist and put into my private collection, 

only very occasionally seeing the light of day.

Points worthy of mention, beautiful paint finish and hand painted coach-lines all correct and as they should be.

Alloy Rims, the heel and toe gearshift the rear suspension with manual dampening 

exposed kick start quadrant and of course its very low centre of gravity due to the horizontal motor. 

To sum up a 1958 Moto Guzzi Airone Sport 250. A genuine true Sport model in beautiful condition. 

All the special Sport parts, naturally, this is 100% a genuine bike. 

Starts first kick and rides perfectly. 

Although Airone were not supplied new with a speedo, this bike has a speedo, 

this bike is most probably the best example currently available anywhere in the world

quite simply - my Airone Sport is good enough to park up in your living room !!

a stunning example that would make a very

respectable addition to any serous collection plus an appreciating asset for the future

 

As this bike is over 55 years old bike we are selling it sold as seen with no warranty implied or given.
