1991 Gilera CX125 located in Santa Ana, California. This bike has 3432 KM = 2059 Miles. I believe this bike is all original, but not 100% sure. I'm not a expert on these CX125"s. Engine runs good, no problems. I think the bike is in good condition for it's age. This bike is being sold with a bill of sale only. I don't have a title for the bike and can not get one, so don't ask. All stupid questions will not be answered. More info is available on our website. If you overseas or Canadian buyer, you will have to make your own shipping arrangements. I can help USA buyers with the shipping, or you can arrange your own shipper. Bike is being sold as is, no returns. Ask questions and look at the pictures carefully before you bid. Again, this bike is being sold with a bill of sale only, NO TITLE. There is no buy it now price. I will not end the auction early, so don't ask.


  1. Half and Audi ring wheels ? lol

  2. I might be able to shed a bit of light on this model of bike but not this particular bike itself.

    First, you might want to fix your labeling :) - it's not a scooter, but a proper, albeit small capacity high end Italian sports bike with a regular gearbox. They're pretty powerful (power is in the high twenties stock IIRC) and handle extremely well. I did test ride one when living in the UK and was very impressed, but then I'm one of those weirdos with a weakness for rare small capacity bikes.

    They're one of a handful of high end small capacity sports bikes to come out of Italy in the 90s and 2000s like the Cagiva Mito and Aprilia RS125. None of these were cheap to buy or run nor learner friendly. The Gilera is the rarest of the three mentioned and I don't believe it was ever officially sold outside Italy.

    From the pictures I think the assertion the seller makes about the CX125s originality is correct, it does look like it's complete and in extremely good shape. That's important on those as parts - especially bodywork, frame etc - are pretty much unobtanium these days and I'm not sure how bad the availability of mechanical and service parts is.

    My main concern with this particular bike would be the title situation - I've imported classic motorcycles from Europe myself in the past and in general (and outside CA) it's not that hard to title a bike if you make sure your follow the basic rules regarding age and have all the paperwork. That said, I didn't try to title and register one in California and as we all know the CA DMV can be a little special from time to time.
