Ever heard of a "Gilera" Motorcycle?

I think I'm too young to have heard of the brand, spotted it on another forum and looks like a fine bike indeed!

I rode one of those in my younger days, I could tell it would have been a maintenance nightmare.

The brand still lives. It's part of Piaggio, makers of Aprilia, Moto Guzzi and Vespa.

They forgot to provide me the phone box, though...  >:(
