1986 Villa Daytona 125
Frame no. 4175
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. From 1986 the roadsters featured water-cooled engines of Villa’s own manufacture, the Daytona 125 offered here being one such. Acquired for the Museum in 1987, this particular machine has never been registered and has covered a mere 70 kilometres only in the course of homologation testing for the Austrian market. It is offered with bill of sale, Italian/German-language specifications, original technical drawing and customs document.
