Cimatti Moped

Found on Craigslist in Philadelphia. A not too unusual example from the great 1970s moped boom. It does have a few different features- note the rear gas tank (seen on some Hondas) and stylish front fender.

Few Cimattis were imported here, and what came in were mostly mopeds. A pity, as they had some really handsome 50cc race bikes, like this DX:

And this 1962 Cimatti C50:

There's a fair amount of info out there on Cimattis, but most of it seems to be in Italian- at least most of what I've found. More photos at Sheldon's European Motorcycle Universe.
