The price of that one I think is too high. And the big problem with it would be the quality of the tinwear, particularly the rear mudguard.Don't be afraid of rebuilding the engine though - NOS parts are available from Rudiger Kohlmetz in Germany. Rudi bought up the NOS spares stock of Cosmopolitan Motors when they closed. He had all the parts I required and was generally pretty reasonable on price. As an example he supplied me with new valves, valve guides and valve springs and the total cost was 90. So nowhere near the cost of Ducati Bevel spares. There's a great guy in UK called Mike McGarry who is a great technical resource and is very helpful. He manages a very useful website https://www.motoparilla.co.uk/ . For anyone considering buying a Parilla, I'd touch base with Mike first.I was lucky in that all the hard to find cycle parts were on the bike - including the Greyhound mascot on the front mudguard. I also swapped the electrical system for a VAPE 12 volt alternator and electronic ignition, which is a worthwhile mod for reliability. New wiring loom cost 29 and seat cover 85 from Brezzi. Most difficult part was replacing the bronze bushes in the forks. Also I had to have a new swing arm pin and bushes made.Here's a few photos of my rebuild. Note the bronze skull in the head, cassette gearbox and single lobe on the cam which operates both valves.A really beautiful looking engine now it's finished. No match for a 200 Elite on performance, but a very attractive little bike.20200604_153402 by Derek Wardell, on Flickr20200611_172828 by Derek Wardell, on Flickr20200608_151644 by Derek Wardell, on FlickrDSC_1880 by Derek Wardell, on Flickr
