80 years of Moto Guzzi Excellence

1917: Carlo Guzzi and Giorgio Parodi meet in the Italian Air Force and agree to start a motorcycle company after the war.

A third pilot in their unit, Giovanni Ravelli, was a well-known racer of the time. He would have become a Moto Guzzi partner as well, but he was killed in a plane crash.
1920: Built with the help of the town blacksmith in the moutain village of Mandello, Carlo Guzzi's original prototype features a four-valve overhead-cam 500 cc single-cylinder engine mounted horizontally.
1921: Seventeen production models are produced at the Mandello del Lario factory. Moto Guzzi makes its racing debut in the Milan-to-Naples race. Later that year, Guzzi racing wins its first race: the torturous Targa Florio.

1924: After the championship of Europe at the Monza Autodrome, the Secretary of the International Federation wrote: "The three Guzzis . . dominated the event virtually from beginning to end, thus proving the importance of the Italian mortorcycle industry."
1928: With the G.T. (Grand Tourer), Moto Guzzi introduced the sprung frame. The world was not yet ready, however and only 78 were ever built.

1930: A horizontal 4-cylinder competition bike is introduced. In this era, all of the men at the Moto Guzzi factory sign their hand-built engines personally.
