Frame no. 266214 (voir texte)
Engine no. 262955
Cette Saturno Sport fut livrée neuve en 1949 au ministère italien de la Défense qui l'utilisa pour l'acheminement du courrier interne jusqu'en 1969. Elle fut cédée à son premier propriétaire civil en 1970. En 1989, la Gilera fut achetée par le propriétaire actuel qui entreprit une restauration totale. Depuis l'achèvement de cette restauration, la machine conservée en collection privée a très peu roulé. D'une conception en avance sur son temps et capable de s'intégrer sans problème à la circulation actuelle, cette Saturno décrite comme étant en très bon état général demandera néanmoins une révision avant d'être réutilisée. On notera qu'il nous a été impossible de vérifier son numéro de cadre.

    .



    This Saturno Sport was sold new to the Italian Ministry of Defence in 1949 and used by the Ministry for the delivery of internal mail until 1969. It was sold to its first civilian owner in 1970. In 1989 the Gilera was acquired by the current owner, who embarked on a comprehensive restoration. Since the rebuild's completion the machine has seen little use within the owner's private collection. An ahead-of-its-time design capable of coping easily with modern-day traffic conditions, the Saturno is described as in generally good condition but will require re-commissioning before further use. It should be noted that we have been unable to locate a frame number.
