Very rarely do we see new Parilla spares advertised for sale, even rarer to find engine parts but what chance a NOS engine?
Just such a thing was recently unearthed , along with another 5, in the UK. All are now in the hands of Parilla enthusiasts here & will hopefully be adding to the number of UK bikes on the road/track.
The outside looks pretty grotty but inside its a very different story.
The engines had been stored in a leaky shed & suffered severe corrosion to the crankcases & outer covers.
The quality of Parilla castings varies greatly, hopefully the crankcases will all be OK but I’d doubt if the outer covers will ever be a mirror finish again.
