Cimatti History Information Wanted.

Dan Webber Kastner /

I am looking for any information on the company Cimatti. I am writing a review of the 1978 Cimatti Twin sport. I can't find much information on it. Does anyone have any brochures? Does anyone know how the Twin sport differed from the Town bike? I will even take here say and conjecture. Let me know please.

Do you have any pics of the "Twin Sport" ?

The only thing I can find is Cimatti made a "City Bike" and later a "Town" model. The City had the gas tank under the rear luggage carrier and the Town had a larger tank mounted on the front frame as a step thru model. I think there are pictures of both in the Photos section.

Here is a photo of the Twin Sport:

If there's a difference between the Town Bike and the Twin Sport, I'll be damned if I can see what it is. They look like exactly the same machine.

If you take a Town Bike, replace the double seat with a single, move the fuel tank to the rear, and change out the chrome fenders for painted ones, you've got a City Bike, from what I can tell. If you need the manual for the City, I can help.

I think that Dan found out that their basically the same bike - just release under a different name with slight visual modifications. I wonder if the new name was some sort of marketing decision - maybe twin sport went over better in America.

Seems logical, but what does the "Twin" refer to? Twin wheels? Twin handlebar grips? Twin as in room on the seat for siamese twins?

Re: Cimatti History Information Wanted.

Hey I just purchased a well used '78 City bike and am looking for information on getting it back to running order. I saw in your post you might have a manual? Any information you could provide would be really useful. Thanks!

wow, you really dredged up an ancient thread, but there is an owner's manual posted here break>

as far as a repair manual goes, maybe post a WTB in the buy/sell forum.
