1967 Model 23 Metralla Mk2
My brother bought in the early '70's from a friend of his who was the original owner. And I got it from my brother a few years later. Was restored about 25 years ago by the mechanic who worked at Mathias Cycle Sales, Dover, OH when it was originally sold in '69. New paint, chrome & cad plating. Seat was re-covered before my brother bought it. Front fender signed by Jim Pomeroy and Oriol Bulto.
Years past I had a 1980 350 Sherpa T (blue framed torque monster) and a Mercurio that I sold to a friend. The Mercurio was later restored by the same guy that did my Metralla and came out really nice. My brother still has his '66 Sherpa T.
It's for sale, if anyone's interested. $5700 obo.
I'm not a collector and don't ride it enough to justify keeping it. So I'd like to pass it on to someone who'll enjoy it. It's not perfect, but still a great bike that wouldn't take too much to make it perfect.
If I get ambitious, maybe next week I'll list it in the flea market.
