1959 Gilera 175 GT Sport

Description

Gilera is a Luxury Italian motorcycle manufacturer founded in Arcore in 1909 by Giuseppe Gilera. In 1969, the company was purchased by Piaggio. In 1935, Gilera acquired rights to the Rondine four-cylinder engine. This formed the basis for Gilera’ s racing machines for nearly forty years. From the mid-thirties, Gilera developed a range of four-stroke engine machines.

The engines ranged from 100 to 500 cc, the most famous being the 1939 Saturno. Designed by Giuseppe Salmaggi, the Saturno was inspired by the pre-war Gilera VTEGS 500cc “Otto Bulloni” yet was quite different due to its unit construction. In 1969, Gilera became part of the Piaggio group.

This is a particularly lovely example of this iconic make of motorcyle.
