Other Gilera description
This is a 1957 GILERA EXTRA 175 with 36957 km (NOT miles). This is a fairly rare model made from July 1957 to Dec 1958. They were not sold in the US. The Extra model has the chain on the right side and exhaust system on the left side unlike all other Gileras.
It has a 175cc overhead valve 4 stroke. 4 speed. It is in running and riding condition.
There are brand new "San Remo" aluminum rims and correct zinc plated spokes from the previous owner. The tires are like new correct size which are hard to find. A completely new exhaust system was also done from the previous owner.
This is a great Italian bike. It is GIRO eligible. This would be a perfect candidate for the Giro di California as well as similar events including Italian rides. 1957 is the last year for genuine eligibility.
Iíve owned the bike since 2009. It has been well maintained and stored as a collection piece. Cosmetically, the seat is in good condition and there are a couple of paint chippings on the front fender.
The following will need fixing or replacement. The bike needs a left fuel valve. It wonít need to be replaced, but the tank needs to be flushed, there is rust on the inside. The voltage regulator and the left handle grip will also need replacement. The bike has a recently new battery and working key.
The bike is ready to go!
The bike is located in Indianapolis and we encourage inspections.
Please call 317.502.2107 for any questions.
