I bought postcards about 5 years ago In Siena when visiting Italy. Having just acquired a new hpe I was excited so had them framed ónot sure what they are. Did some research but inconclusive. The year is printed below each bike. I think the left one is a 125u. - center a 180 super sport - right a P 150 or 200. What do you think?

In case you cannot read the year left to right itís 1953 1965 1984.

The blue on the right looks like a pk125s. Picture is not clear but the cowls looks squarish with a door and there's a bag hook connected to the seat. That pk front fender is high, too.

Thanks rowdyc-- I believe you are correct -- I looked at some internet photos of some 1985 pk125 s and compared to my original -- looks like exact match -- angled slots in fender, squarish high front mudguard, and several other details.

I am fairly certain of the left one but uncertain about the one in the middle. Perhaps the large front mudguard would be diagnostic?

That looks like a SS180 based on the trim and glovebox.

Thanks Birdsnest ó based on your identification I found a video review by Robot of 1965 SS 180 and it matches.

Thanks

Very cool pics , I had picked up a picture from the back streets of Florence years ago, paid 2 euros I think its a photo of florence with the Duomo in the background . Maybe someone can say what the bike is?

We visited Siena last Sept , we drove all over Tuscany, curvy roads heaven.
