Brothers Francesco and Walter Villa began building their own machines in the mid-1960s. Walter raced Villa bikes before his rise to stardom, securing three consecutive 250-class World Championships for Harley-Davidson between 1974 and '76, to which he added one in the 350 class. Manufactured up to 1988, the firm's lightweight roadsters used proprietary engines at first while its successful moto-cross and enduro models used motors of Villa's own design. Constructed by Harry, this DoT trails iron is fitted with one of Villa's 360cc six-speed engine/gearbox units and looks every inch a factory-built machine. There are no documents with this Lot.
