Moto Guzzi Lodola 235 cc. Trail/Trials/Green Lane.

Rare 1960 Guzzi Lodola (Lark) 235 cc. machine in trials/trail, or green lane trim, comes with a full set of final drive and rear sprockets and a set of trials tyres, currently the bike has enduro tyres fitted for better road handling.

I found this bike in the back of a garage in Ruthin after following up rumours; it was almost all there in boxes. I have over a period of three years restored this bike using some modern components such as plastic mudguards’ and up to date rear suspension units to make it more usable. The dynamo which is original and Lucas has been overhauled, as have the front forks which are B S A, it is mechanically sound and fit for everyday use.

History. The ISDT was held in Wales in 1960, I suspect that this bike was influenced by that event, I did consider that it might be one of the Lodola’s used however I cannot substantiate this. From the Frame and engine No. it left the factory in 1960 as a Lodola GT 235 cc. At some point in its early life it was put into its current guise, using BSA forks which were much more substantial that the original Guzzi type, the original Guzzi front wheel was kept.

I am aware that the wife of a local bike dealer used one of these machines in North Wales in the early 1970’s this may well be the same machine, there aren’t many.

It’s a nice light nimble bike with a Boyer CDI ignition system for easy starting and an Amal concentric carb for ease of maintenance, the front wheel currently fitted is from an early MZ, the original wheel is still available if needed.

Price £3,250 which reflects the cost of the restoration. I have done close on a thousand miles since putting it on the road, its delightful to ride, I am short of space as two more needy stray Italians have come into my care,
