Panda 175 info

Postby Russellk » Thu Feb 13, 2020 8:13 pm

Anyone able to assist me or point me in the right direction for parts/service info to assist me in a restoration of a late 1970’s Panda 175.

Many thanks...Russell

Can't help with info but also can't resist posting a couple of pics of these gorgeous little bikes

I was intrigued with the Panda JC1 so I went looking and found a wonderful and well written history of the bike by "Trials Guru"
https://trialsguru.net/2016/06/19/panda ... -beckmann/
I especially loved the reason for them calling it a 220

Thanks Dave, that's a great read.

Here's another article, with some overlap to that one but some more pics as well:

The bike that the Panda turned into - the Valenti - looks very nice too

That Valenti with the Tau engine looks fabulous. Dare I say it looks as sexy as the Italjet and the SWM? They really know how to make good styling.
Is that really Valentino Rossi in the riding photo? I didn't know he was into classic trials.
I suspect that Alessio Bartolini may the same person as Pippa Bartolini who is part of so many of the classic trials bike ride impressions written by Justyn Norek and Justyn Norek Jnr
