This 1958 Parilla Gran Sport was originally delivered with a 175cc single-cylinder engine, but has been fitted with a 250cc High-Cam single and four-speed transmission from a later Parilla. Per the seller, the bike was part of a private collection and was displayed in the owner’s living room for the last 11 years. Since acquisition the selling dealer has replaced the battery and filled the bike with fresh fuel, but has not gotten it running due to a missing kick starter. This Parilla is offered by the selling dealer in Oregon with a clean Colorado title.
