Gilera 150cc Sport

Brochure for the Gilera 150cc Sport model. Not so many were sold in the UK but the association with Geoff Duke would have been a strong selling point even if the humble ohv 150cc Sport was a world away from the dohc fours that Duke was racing.

I'm guessing the brochure is c1958. The rear cover is promoting the six world championship wins. The last of these was in 1957 and Gilera pulled out of GP racing along with several other manufacturers for the '58 season.
