ON SALE - REPRO 'REPARTO SPERIMENTALE' SIGN FROM MOTO GUZZI FACTORY











In a far corner of the historic Moto Guzzi factory outside courtyard at Mandello del Lario, just past the wind tunnel which is slowly rusting away, there is a battered door to a large workshop which is always locked. The old sign on the door with its rusty rivets, weathered surface and faded, peeling letters says 'Reparto Sperimentale', which means 'Experimental Department' in English. Who knows what might have been invented there over the years? The V8? The Le Mans 1? Who has worked in there - Carcano, Carlo Guzzi, Lino Tonti, Dr John Wittner, Bruno Scola?

We have reproduced that wonderful sign having seen it and desired it every time we've been to Mandello because we wanted one for our workshop door - and now you can too. We've kept the patina of the original sign faded by time and encapsulated it into hard-wearing vinyl and PVC. Perfect for your shed, garage, workshop, man cave, living room, toilet door, wherever...

More details about size, materials, cost and how to buy are all to be found in our IMM store, email us at ciao@italianmotormagazine.com or click on the link here:
