Engine no. 39101
Throughout the early 1950s it was Gilera's racers that grabbed the headlines, taking five Manufacturer's titles and six individual World Championships in the hands of riders such as Duke, Liberati and Masetti. Although racing generated valuable publicity, it was sales of road bikes that paid the bills. Most were lightweights based on the overhead-valve 125cc single that had appeared in prototype form in 1948. These simple OHV singles proved top sellers throughout the 1950s and into the 1960s, although their high price outside Italy made them a relatively rare sight overseas. The name 'Giubileo' was first used by Gilera in 1959, the year that the company celebrated its Golden Jubilee, for a new range of lightweights commencing with the 98 Giubileo. This particular 98 Giubileo has covered only 9.7 kilometres since restoration to original specification and is described as 'like new'.

    Durant tout le début des années 1950, c'est Gilera qui faisait la une des journaux, remportant cinq titres de constructeurs et six championnats du monde individuels aux mains de pilotes comme Duke, Liberati et Masetti. Même si la compétition générait une bonne publicité, c'était la vente des motos de route qui faisaient rentrer l'argent. La plupart étaient des motos légères construites sur la base de la 125 cm3 à arbre à cames en tête qui était apparue sous forme de prototype en 1948. Ces motos à simple arbre à cames en tête connurent un bon succès dans les années 1950 et 1960, bien que leur prix trop élevé hors des frontières italiennes en ait fait des objets relativement rares sur les marchés étrangers. Le nom de Giubileo fut utilisé pour la première fois par Gilera en 1959, l'année où la marque fêtait son jubilée d'or, pour la gamme de motos légères lancée avec la 98 Giubileo. Cette 98 Giubileo particulière n'a parcouru que 9,7 km depuis sa restauration aux spécifications d'origine et est présentée « comme neuve »
