1958 Gilera 150 Sport

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1958 Gilera 150 Sport was purchased by the seller 3 years ago after being inspired by similar motorcycles at the Best of France and Italy show in Los Angeles. Benefitting from an older restoration that still presents well, finishes and details have been carefully recreated. Powered by a 150cc 4-stroke single linked to a 4 speed transmission, this bike was purchased in running condition but has been used primarily as a decorative piece since and the owner can not vouch for it’s current mechanical condition. This Gilera is sold with a clean California title in the seller’s name. Produced from 1952-1960, the 150 Sport was one of Gilera’s most successful offerings that appealed to younger sportsmen and small bore racers. The paint and brightwork all appear in good condition and this example features factory clip-ons, alloy wheels, and aftermarket bar-end mirrors. The Veglia speedometer appears unrestored with a lightly faded dial and pitted bezel. 26K kilometers are shown (16K miles) but the true mileage is unknown. Details include factory correct decals throughout, Gilera script footpeg rubber, and folding alloy passenger pegs. The matching numbers 150cc overhead valve 4-stroke single produces 7.5 HP and will reportedly propel the bike to 58MPH. No service receipts are available, and although it was purchased in running condition, this bike has been in storage and will require at minimum a battery and basic tuning to return to the street.
