From the Michael Harper Collection of Tarzana, California, this 1957 Moto Guzzi Cardellino 65 is a fine example of the line which, in 1954, replaced the very successful 65 Guzzino (Little Guzzi), that sold over 200,000 models. A 2-stroke, 3-speed motorcycle that uses old-fashioned 2-cycle oil mixed in a 20:1 ratio with regular gasoline.
