C.1955 Isomoto 125cc. Registration number not registered. Frame number M23399. Engine number 81963.
Nowadays Iso is best remembered for its muscular V8-engined Grifo supercar of the 1960s but the company's origins were more mundane. Renzo Rivolta's Isothermos company had begun life pre-war making refrigerators, turning to the manufacture of scooters and motorcycles after the war and thence to the highly successful Isetta 'bubblecar'. After the failure of its first scooter, the Furetto, Iso produced the Isoscooter and Isomoto lightweight motorcycle, both of which used a Puch-style 125cc 'split single' two-stroke engine. Although it was a major manufacturer with more than 2,500 agents in Italy and Europe, Iso had its sights firmly set on the Gran Turismo car market and ceased making two-wheelers in 1960.
There is no history or paperwork with this unusual machine, although it appears a partial restoration has been untaken, Spicers recommend that recommissioning will be required
