    Rex Motorcycle

    This one has me a bit puzzled. I can't figure out exactly what it is. It is an Italian based bike. I found some info that shows it as a re-badged Garelli but someone also thought the engine is Moto Parilla.

    Rex, Garelli, and Moto Parilla all used the same 125 cc 4 stroke in the mid 1960s (like around 1965). I think the parilla was called the wildcat scrambler and the Garelli was the KL125. It should be a pushrod engine IIRC. A buddy of mine had one in boxes in new orleans I thinkt he brand in america was "Rex Garelli" but I have seen them sometimes called just Rex or Just Garelli. By the mid 1960's I think Garelli and Parilla were the same company.

    That is Def the Parilla/Garelli generator cover - you don't forget a graphic like that.

    Yep its a pushrod engine. Its also stuck. I'm hoping I can free it and maybe get it running again. Its not in great shape but its all there. It is for sale at some point if anybody might be interested.

    On a side not I did get a 350 Jawa running and riding today.

    Beauty shot out behind the shop.

    wish you were closer I would be interested.

    On that note I would get it free and running slap some tires on it, leave it be and ride. It looks perfect right now.
    Bike:
    Buell X1
    Honda S90 (box of parts)
    Honda CB750C (runs)
    The Others (mostly rolling wounded)

    My collar may be a little frayed, and maybe I need a shoeshine. But nobody\'s got a mortgage on my soul. I own it. Free and clear. -Phil Lovecraft
