Legnano School me right quick on early 80 models

???

I know what to look for but what should I look for? I dont want to turn this into an appraisal thread but I have no idea from that perspective either.

The bike in question has a motor on it.....

Is it a bicycle with a motor, a scooter, or a moped?

They're regular bicycles with Garelli bolt on motors. I have an appointment to look at a matching pair (mens and ladies) tomorrow. The owner ordered them from Italy in 1983, I'm not sure if the motors were a factory piece or not.

Interesting bikes. tubi trafilati precisioni interno esterno translates to precision drawn tubes inside outside

Saddles don't look very comfy.

The tubings interesting, its not aluminum as evidenced by rust speckling but its not steel either....the owner said he has the original seats. Interesting bikes.

Not steel or aluminum. Doesn't that leave titanium?

Did you do the Magnet Test?
