Marusho was founded in 1948 by Masashi Ito. By 1950 he had produced his first motorcycle, the 150cc ML. Other models followed, and some, such as the transverse V-twins and flat twins, were quite similar to the Victoria Bergmeister, and the BMW, respectively. Purchased by the deceased owner in Australia in 1996, this Marusho was in a poor state and was restored there at the behest of the owner, before being imported to the UK in 2003. After arrival in the country the vendor took the machine to one show where it won best Japanese bike, and entered it at Stafford where it was awarded 'Machine of Most Technical Merit'. It has never been run since restoration, so a new owner will need to re-commission the bike and carry out safety checks before use. Documentation comprises a copy parts/maintenance manual, papers relating to shipping, and sundry other papers.
