Identifying My Gilera

Post by Evan H Kurker » Thu Jan 26, 2023 4:11 pm

Hello!
New to the forum and have an old lil Gilera that was said to be a 106 but I think it is much bigger as it has a 60.150mm bore.
The frame number is *104*512* I think it could be a Giubileo 150 but only based off photos. Unfortunately it came as a basket case but I have most of the parts needed to get it together. I'll add a few photos of the rolling chassis I have put together so far if I can figure out how to re-size them to post. :lol:
Hopefully we can figure this out .
Thanks!
Evan

Helo and welcome

104 should be a 150 5V

Pics can be resized with several programms.
I prefer Irfan-View
It's free and can do a lot of other things :)

Thanks Joachim!
I figured out the image issue!
The engine number on the case is the same as the frame.
Lots of missing bits and it is in no way a final assembly as you all can see but it will be a cool little bike for sure when I get it all sorted out!

did not look like a 150 V.
Although the 104 pre number did tell that
Maybe a 150 Sport
Hmmm... the VIN should start with 188 then.

I found this....doesnt help much though!
Gilera 150 engine/frame numbers

Here are the prefixes, i.e. the homologation codes of the Gilera 150 models and the construction periods. The serial number of an engine or frame was formed by an asterisk. followed by the prefix, the progressive number of the copy and another asterisk.

18, Sport 3-speed model, from February 1952 to September 1952;
19, 3-speed Turismo model, from September 1952 to March 1954;
181, Sport 4-speed model, from January 1953 to April 1954;
182, Sport 4-speed model (second version), from March 1954 to December 1954;
186, Sport 4-speed model (third version), from January 1955 to February 1957;
188, Super Sport model, from May 1957 to July 1959:
191, model Turismo (second version), from March 1954 to December 1955;
194, Gran Turismo model, from May 1955 to May 1956:
195, model Gran Turismo (second version),from November 1955 to May 1957;
196, Gran Turismo model (third version), from July 1957 to February 1958;
197, Sport (fourth version), from March 1957 to February 1959.
NB-The 4 versions of the Sport have only slight technical and aesthetic differences between them.
ATTENTION!
The official denomination 150 Rossa Super (acronym 192) for this model produced from May 1957 to July 1959 should not be misleading. In fact, it is a 175 which, compared to the 150, changes bore and stroke (60x61 mm) plus various engine details.

So after lots of looking I have found 2 Gileras with the same 104 prefix of the engine/frame number. They both sold on an online auction so I assume the numbers are correct.
I know for a fact what I have is a 150cc by the 60mm bore and 56mm stroke, just could not lock down the year and model name.
The bikes I found are both 1964 Gilera Giubileo 150s, so I think it is pretty safe to say that is what I have here before me.
I may have solved this case once and for all!
In case anyone was wondering..... :lol:

Hi Evan,

I can verify that your Gilera with prefix 104 is in fact a Gilera 150 Giubileo Sport Extra. It has a 4 speed gearbox.
Between 1962 and 1968 a total amount of 3.020 units of the 150 Giubileo Sport Extra were produced.
Your GIlera is an early one, probably from the first year of production (1962).
You might find the production month and year on the top base of the cylinder.
This was the case for the Giubileo 175 and 202,so well worth checking that?
Sorry for my late reply as I had missed your original post *schnarch*

Greetings, Nozem rulez

Thanks Nozem!
I knew someone would know something! :D
Now I just need to get all these parts sorted out and get this motor rumbling again.
I managed to rebuild the bottom end new bearings and all. Transmission shifts smoothly, clutch operates properly, cylinder is freshly honed and new rings are fitted to the piston. Had a hard time getting push rod tappets but I think I've got the correct ones in the mail so we will see! Should be able to fire this old girl up in no time.
Cheers!
