1956 Capriolo 75 Corsa
Is this the most beautiful bike at Moto Talbott? Many visitors think so, thanks to its extensive drillings, pressed steel frame…and oh that color! “It’s jewelry,” says museum founder Robb Talbott of our 1956 Italian Capriolo 75 Corsa. “It’s one of my absolute favorites.” The bike was ridden jockey style, in full tuck, feet on the
rearsets, with the left hand grasping the fork leg and the chin resting on a specially made stop. You have to do everything possible to minimize wind resistance when you only have a 75cc powerplant! Production ran from 1947 until 1964.
