175-200-250cc High-Cam

The "high-cam" motor was Moto Parilla's most distinctive design for the company. High-cams were introduced in 1953 and modified extensively until the company's end in 1964. By far, the models that used the high-cam motor are the most popular to collectors over any other Parilla model. Check out our expanded high-cam section with all models, motor & frame comparisons, part identification, and serial numbers list of existing high-cam bikes.
