While I have several pictures of this Italy issue, I can not tell if the image is that of a motorcycle or bicycle. I am a motorcycle topical collector, so this makes a difference to me. Anyone have the actual issue that can help me to clarify identify?

Italia 1945 - Alcuni dei francobolli emessi dai Corrieri Alta Italia (CORALIT), servizio postale privato autorizzato dal Ministero delle Comunicazioni per assicurare I collegamenti con ciclisti tra alcune cittą, in sostituzione dei servizi regolari interrotti a causa della guerra - 14 lire erano il supplemento richiesto ogni 10 grammi


on italian "un ciclista" means "an cyclist"... so it can be both a bicyclist or a motorcyclist...

but, here are some better photos... it could be a motorcycle... but probably a bicycle back in the year 1945...

I have looked into that issue a lot in the past and decided it is a bicycle.

If you search Google with both the service name and "bicicletta" you get much stronger results than a search including "motocicletta" (though that doesn't rule out others guessing, as well).

I'm fluent in menu Italian, and not much more, so you might have better luck interpreting the results of a similar search.
