Alpino 175c.c.
Atte. Srs. Sheldon´s EMU: El motivo de mi consulta es tratar de obtener información (manuales, despiece,fotos,etc.) sobre una Alpino 175c.c. de tiemposmodelo 1958 o similar, estoy restaurándola y me cuesta vastante ya que las piezas del motor estan totalmente deterioradas y neseceto adaptar lo que se pueda,
En Argentina no existen bases de datos a las que recurrir y esto me limita bastante,les agradecería mucho si pudieran colaborar conmigo enviándome material sobre la moto.
Ademas me permito sugerir, ya que he visto muchas consultas similares que publiquen las respuestas, creo que eso les facilitaría la tarea de contestar personalmente cada consulta.
Cordialmente, Rodolfo Galbusera

Translation: The reason for my question is trying to get information (manuals, cutting, photos, etc.) On an Alpine 175c.c. of tiemposmodelo 1958 or the like, I'm restoring it and it's hard vastante as engine parts are fully damaged and neseceto adapt what you can.

In Argentina there are no databases to draw on and this limits me a lot, I would greatly appreciate if they could work with me by sending me material on the bike.
I also would suggest, since I have seen many similar queries publish the answers, I think that would facilitate the task of personally answer each query.
