No Reserve: 1949 Gilera 125 Turismo

This is from the site Bring a Trailer ( ...

This 1949 Gilera 125 Turismo comes from the first year of the model’s production and is powered by a 125cc 4-stroke single paired with a 4-speed gearbox. It features a Girder fork and Borrani rims, as well as a solo saddle and rear luggage rack. The bike has resided in the seller’s private collection for the past 13 years and was recently serviced in preparation for the auction. This Gilera is now being offered at no reserve out of Indianapolis, Indiana with a bill of sale. Bodywork includes a full set of fenders and red fuel tank with the chrome “fish-eye” Gilera logo. The battery resides underneath the saddle, though it is removed in photos. A Girder fork is utilized up front along with a swing arm in the rear, and friction dampers are fitted at each end. Borrani aluminum rims are laced to twin-shoe aluminum drums, and the tires are reportedly older with signs of cracking. The air-cooled 125cc OHV single is a 4-stroke engine and stressed-member of the frame. The 4-speed gearbox is shifted on the right side, and induction is through a single Dellorto carburetor. A video of the bike running can be viewed below.
