The UK importers brochure for the Gilera 175. I believe this dates from 1958. They might have been sweet little bikes but in the UK they were damned expensive. To put in to perspective in 1958 you could buy an AJS 18S 500 ohv single for £198 or a Gilera 175 Sports for £193. Only a few quid more and you could have a 350cc Velocette Viper (about the same price as the tuned 175 Gilera), the Gilera might have been nice but I know which I would have chosen....
