Mr. Know It All

Garelli 150 Gladiator

My new bike

By vic krause

I purchased a Garelli 150 Gladiator 150cc Scrambler from Dave Bickers for a very good price, and need to know of the parts availability for this fine machine. It runs, but the clutch slips quite badly, and it also makes some rather odd “ticking” noises from the cylinder head area. Is this bike a collector’s item? The chap I purchased it from said that this model Garelli launched Nino Farbuti’s short but thrilling career in closed course competition in Verona, Italy back in the 1970 season. Anything you can do to get this once fine machine back into shape would be appreciated kind sir.
