1962 Gilera 175cc Giubileo
Frame no. 103/2783
Throughout the early 1950s it was Gilera's racers that grabbed the headlines, taking five manufacturer's world 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. The majority were lightweights based on the overhead-valve 125 single that had appeared in prototype form in 1948. Developed and enlarged first to 150cc and then 175cc, these simple OHV singles, built in both Turismo and Sport versions, proved top sellers throughout the 1950s and into the 1960s, although their high price outside Italy made them a relatively rare sight in the UK. Offered from a private collection in Italy, this original Giubileo comes with Italian registration papers and is sold strictly as viewed.
