The Itom factory was founded in Turin by lawyer Corrado Corradi, and began production in 1948 at Via Francesco Millio, moving later to S.Ambrogio Torinese.

Their first product was an auxiliary bicycle engine (3 versions – one for front wheel – 2 for rear wheel – close to pedals or over the rear wheel)

The 1957 Astor Super Sport and Competizione achieved 75 Kph. Itom sold a tuning kit for competition use comprising high compression cylinder head, chrome bore cylinder, Dell’ Orto SS20 carburettor, expansion chamber and piston. The pistons were of various types with either 2 or 3 rings.

This superb 50cc 3 speed racer is the same model that Mike Hailwood rode.

It has a reconditioned engine, alloy wheels, full width hubs, and is a real classic racing machine.

It is owned by a good friend of mine, Peter, and can be viewed as required in Skipton, north Yorkshire.
