1988 Garelli 125cc Grand Prix Racing Motorcycle
Frame no. 005-1
Just like that of Garelli's ill-starred 250, the 125's rigid monocoque chassis was a target of criticism. The team tried a stock Honda RS125 twin-spar chassis at Assen (see Lot 11) and also a Moretti frame that looked a lot like a Yamaha TZ250 Deltabox. It is the latter machine that is offered here. Nevertheless, the team's No.1 rider Fausto Gresini was still not satisfied and designer Jan Thiel refused to have anything to do with the hybrids, leaving the team in disarray.

    Comme dans le cas de la malchanceuse 250 de Garelli, la monocoque rigide de la 125 fit l'objet de critiques et l'équipe essaya un cadre « twin spar » Honda RS 125 de série à Assen (voir Lot 11) ainsi qu'un cadre Moretti ressemblant beaucoup au Yamaha TZ250 Deltabox (voir Lot 6). Néanmoins, le pilote n°1 Fausto Gresini n'en fut pas satisfait et l'ingénieur Jan Thiel ne voulant plus entendre parler d'hybrides quitta une firme en plein désarroi.
