I've recently bought a Gilera 175, which was advertised as a sport model. The bike was imported from Italy in April 1996 and was MOT'd giving an approximate year of manufacture of 1954. However the MOT done in 1999 shows the year as 1962 ? I believe the bike is a 175 Guibileo but would like confirmation of the exact year. It has matching frame and engine numbers ie. 103-4568. Not sure if the headlight/switches are standard either
It needs rewiring, so has anyone got a wiring diagram I can work from please. The battery is wired POSITIVE EARTH? Also could anyone please let me know what spark plug to fit. Any help would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the Gileristi Roger. On the right hand side of the site you'll see Handbooks and Manuals, click on that and there's one for the 150/175 Giubileo so that might answer some of your questions plus one for the other 175 models so that might also help you a bit. Can't help more than that as my technical knowledge is "if it's not working, call someone who knows about these things." Hope it help, Paul
Looks like a Giubileo. Engine/frame prefix is correct. On the earlier '189' 175s (like my 57) they had the year stamped on the crankcase under the side cover, but no idea if the later ones did. I don't think my 1970 Giubileo 98 did though.
Bob Wright might be able to give you a better idea of year.
