1968 Gilera 125

Congratulations to Apolo Orfali for winning Bike of the Month with his 1968 Gilera 125.

Apolo has owned this bike for a year. He built it for the Monterey Moto Concorso. It is a ground up restoration with a custom tank and seat.

The carb has been changed to a 24mm horizontal carb, and the straight pipes are custom. Apolo also fabricated the custom rearsets to move them back.

The paint was done by Apolo and Marcello Doffo of Santa Ana.

Thanks Apolo for bringing this bike out for all of us to see.
