Vintage Photos

The first man on the left is my great-grandad….. and he was a cool biker for Moto Guzzi. He used to race with the greatest PILOTI … as Nuvolari , etc!

    Beautiful photograph. At least in their style these men were gentlemen even when doing something considered as crazy/strenuous (especially back then) as racing motorcycles. We need only look back a few generations to see how class was applied to all facets of life; from sport to rest, from work to leisure past generations seemed to understand a thing about this! Again, magnificent photo!
