1972 - 1987
The AIM (Assemblaggio italiano motocicli) was an Italian motorcycle company, founded in 1972 and continued through 1987. As a result of organizational and technical differences with his brother Jose, Andrea Becocci decided to leave Bimm and to found his own firm for the production of motorcycles.
The business, started in Prato, was soon transferred to the new plant Vernio. In the first year they were produced only mopeds with engines utilitarian single-branding but in 1973 was introduced the model to cross 50 R 5 ", with Morini Turbostar engines,five-speed transmission and a surface finned radial head.
The model had success in sales and a few copies, properly prepared, were used in regional competitions by private riders, including the future champion Luchi Marco. With the return of their image, due to competition, persuaded Becocci to start producing specialized models for high performance, in contrast to Ancillotti and Gori, for cross and regular circuit racing.
They started the production in small series, particularly competition bikes and used of the best components in the market including Sachs engines with 50, 80, 100, 125 and 250 cc displacements. This got numerous wins at regional and national races in the second half of the 1970's and early 1980's.
Despite the sporting successes, the high cost of competing models and their total estrangement, also aesthetics, the normal patterns of production, did not allow the Aim to achieve substantial sales results, in both types of production.
The business came to an end in the 1987.
