1955 Moto Parilla 175 Turismo Speciale – sold
1959 Moto Parilla 175 MSDS – very rare 170xxx series machine
Any MSDS / GS 175 is a rare machine. 500xxx or 501xxx are the usual series numbers. One special series was manufactured for the UK only. This series was equipped with all the optional extras available to be factory-fitted to the model. Gear drive X1 cam, Smiths rev counter & drive, CR gear box, 22.5mm SSI carburettor, alloy rims & the usual signature MSDS / GS cycleparts such as logoed clip-on handlebars, race tank & seat & racing footrests & controls. The series was 170xxx & may have included a dozen machines of which only two complete motorcycles are known to exist worldwide & they are both still in the UK.
This machine was fully restored over a period of several years with genuine OE parts from around the world, pattern or replica parts were not used and all the “signature” items are present. It is presented in its modern “competition” specification rather than with all OE parts fitted. In this specification – Ducati style “multispring” clutch, Vape 12v electrics & battryless CDI ignistion, Amal carb – it has completed 4 MotoGiro D’Italia events and several sprints & hillclimbs plus the odd Vintage trackday.
In the last 12 months the engine has been completely stripped for inspection & fitted with new bearings, both valves, new piston & barrel honed to suit, new seals & gaskets throughout. It is now fully refreshed & ready to take on any challenge you can throw at it. For further details & to arrange an inspection please contact:
