Additional option to purchase the ideal bicycle to mount this engine – a rare restored 1950s Bianchi Gents Bicycle

All Itom cycle-attachemnt engines are hard to get hold of these days, and this model of the Itom engine is the rarest of them all.

The company made them to be mounted in three different positions: behind the pedals, over the rear wheel, and over the front wheel. This one fits over the front wheel.

ITOM HISTORY

The Itom was famous. Later models have a special place in the hearts of 1950’s racing fans, as Mike Hailwood’s first trophy was at Blandford on 10 June 1957 for his 3rd place finish on a 50cc Itom.

The Itom factory was founded in Turin by lawyer Corrado Corradi, and began production in 1948 at Via Francesco Millio, moving later to S.Ambrogio Torinese. Their first product was an auxiliary bicycle engine (3 versions – one for front wheel – 2 for rear wheel – close to pedals or over the rear wheel).

LOCATION: Brighton, E.Sussex, United Kingdom

POSTED WORLDWIDE.

AFTER PURCHASE: Please email me your phone numbers; I prefer to speak to all purchasers personally.

FEEDBACK: I do everything I can to make your purchase a pleasurable experience. But I only leave feedback when someone has taken the trouble to leave it for me.

VEHICLE CONDITION: Vintage vehicles are wonderful beasts – but each has an individual personality and they sometimes have bad days just like you and me.
You will need basic mechanical skills (or a local mechanic) to use one on a regular basis.
2-Stroke engines – and cyclemotors in particular – are notoriously unreliable. Basic servicing is generally required if unused for even a few weeks.

These are rare vehicles whose values are not necessarily based on running order.
Unless an auction description specifically states that the vehicle is running, THE VEHICLE IS SOLD FOR RESTORATION.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT BID.
