Lot 140 - 1955 Maserati L.125/T2 Turismo Lusso Replica
|Result||Sold - £4,528|
1956 saw the launch of the T.V.125/T2 Turismo Veloce which sported a higher state of tune (6hp) than the regular 125 but importantly had a four-speed gearbox, the gears of which were notoriously fragile due to the factory squeezing a fourth gear within the standard three-speed engine casings. Despite being sensibly priced in their day, Maserati motorcycles sold in very small numbers compared to their competitors resulting in all models being extremely rare, with some being rarer than others. Today, the 125 T2 and Turismo Lusso variants are the most common with the 160 not far behind.
This pretty Italian motorcycle is a very good replica built around an original engine and transmission. It was believed to have been built in the late 2000’s in Italy. It was bought at a motorcycle fair in Italy in March 2013 and was subsequently imported into England and registered with the DVLA in April 2013 as 382 YUT. This bike was running and riding well but has been unused and on display in a large collection of Italian cars and motorcycles for about three years, so will need some recommissioning.
