1970 - 1976
What the pilot did not like George too stemmed from the fact that almost all the bikes in use on the fields of race relations were too narrow road models.
The result was a driving attitude, and a frame, not in tune with the specific use requested by the type of race.
Began, the head of George, to take the idea of building himself a bike that could meet their and maybe the needs of others.
The work brought the future builder for a few years traveling the world to design and implement complex industrial plants on behalf of companies in the sector, away, in fact, the project motorcycle.
In the late 60s, returned home from the long travel times of the races still regularly encountering the same problems that had tormented him before the stop imposed by the prestigious business.
It was the spring that ultimately led to George Mazzilli machine to sit down and begin to study and design of the bike which he considered ideal.
We are in January 1969, when the pencil by Giorgio springs from the prototype engine equipped Maico in cross configuration. The study of the frame is in any case aimed at building a small number of bikes regularly.
In November of that year began the actual design of a model to be equipped with the regular German Sachs 125cc engine with 5 speed.
Are dated beginning of 1970 the first 5 specimens with Sachs engines of 100 and 125cc for himself and friends-pilots (Toso, Picozzi, Gauls).
That same year, given the excellent results obtained on the fields from the race, Mazzilli performs its first series building about 90 bikes or similar with slight changes, where it shows the good balance of the frame and finally a centered posture driving, which will raise a great curiosity 'between those who sought a means to tackle the hard races regularly.
But a designer worthy of respect, always try to improve, and then again in 1972 sat at the table design, here is the second series (that with the filter on the tank) obtained through the harsh trials and the contribution key intermediate of two prototypes. The achievement of 100 copies and participation in the XXIV Bergamasche valleys will, without fear of refutation, the theory of the goodness of the product.
We are now in 1974, a period permeated by deep socio-cultural revolution, which will stimulate our manufacturer to design a new livery well in tune with the historical moment. The lines are soft and round the junction constant saddle-tank, the overall style of the bike ahead. 100 pieces will project the third series on the fields of national and international competition
Giorgio Mazzilli rightly thought that a model of this scale would not have needed a drastic change, but only a refinement to better enhance the features. Here in 1975 the appearance of the fourth series that thanks to a particular pot will be 'remembered with the nick-mame "TUBONE" the 90 built motorcycle will be considered by critics as the final sum of the capacities of intervention Mazzilli on mechanical cycling.
But times change, as well as regular bikes have unfortunately adapt to different mode. The aluminum tank, the fenders and portafaro Americans Preston of the fifth series certify this status, in each case with the 50 bikes were built between the end of 1976 George 1975ed Mazzilli wrote the word to end this wonderful adventure that involved Hundreds of fans, becoming one of the top icons of fuoristradistica galaxy, and by putting through the implementation of the fabulous exhaust, in this series, its svolazzante signature.
