Hello everyone! A friend of mine is auctioning his 1931 Moto Guzzi Sport 15 on the Bring a Trailer site. It is for charity. So, if you are interested in this beautiful, pristine, and working (running and riding) motorcycle, please head to Bring a Trailer.
Information about this motorcycle from the current owner: This 1931 Moto Guzzi Sport 15 is a first-year example that is said to have been refurbished in Italy in the 1990s before being imported to the US in 1999, and spent time in Colorado and Louisiana prior to the seller’s acquisition in 2003.
Power is from an air-cooled 498cc single paired with a three-speed transmission, and the bike is finished in maroon with black and gold accents. Features include rider and passenger seats, an exposed flywheel, a Dell’Orto carburetor, 19″ wire-spoke wheels, a luggage rack, and a girder front end.
The magneto was refurbished, the babbitt material on the connecting rod renewed, and the seat covers and taillight replaced under current ownership. Service in November 2020 included setting the valves and timing, replacement of the ignition points, and an oil change.
All proceeds from the sale, including the BaT buyer’s fee, will go to Community Supported Shelters, a 501(c)(3) non-profit in Eugene, Oregon that provides supervised transitional shelter and services to homeless community members.
This Sport 15 is offered with owner’s literature, spare parts, and a clean Oregon title in the seller’s name.
Thank you everyone! I didn’t get to photograph it until yesterday, therefore I apologize for the late timing for the auction.
