Great thread, beautiful bikes, love those Parillas.
He didn't speak English, and my Slovene is not exactly fluent. But what's a couple of decades?

Long story.... this is my Aermacchi H/D 350 Sprint. This was my first street bike, got it back after many years. Started restoring it but it really has turned into a money pit. Thinking of ether making a cafe bike or maybe a Salt flats racer. The engine is in great shape, been gone thru and ready to go.

Here's my 250 Mark 3 project. I've just recently sourced a few bits to get it on the road. It's not going to be a mint restoration as I'm having trouble finding bits like a proper tank and the side panels, even repro parts, and I want to ride it without worrying too much about getting it scratched.
I've only managed to find a Scrambler tank for it, which is better than the BSA Bantam tank it had when I acquired the bike, and I have no idea what the seat is off but for the time being it's length suits the scrambler tank.

Once I get a few other life things out of the way I'm planning on spending some time on it early-mid next year.
