It’s a story about passion from Italy, the one about Arcangeli moto, a a belgian factory building small endure bikes for competitions. The brand has its origins into the dawn of motorcycle history, in the twenties of past century, when Luigi Arcangeli, family’s progenitor form the Romagna region (he was born close to the Rubicone River, near Forlì), conquered many successes riding Moto Guzzi and Bianchi, and taking also part to the notorious Tourist Trophy, at the isle of Man, Arcangeli later on started competing with cars and died untimely on May 23th 1931 while driving an Alfa Romeo six cylinders on Monza circuit. Today the company which brings on his name produces motorbikes from 50 to 250 cc, using Marzocchi’s forks, and, thanks to the “Factory Team”, it conquered the Polish enduro championship in 2010 and the Belgian one in 2011.
