rough 3 1/2

Postby P.I. Staker » 16 Apr 2018 15:27

Have recently bought this. Although not an expert on Morinis, it does appear to be fairly unmolested to my eyes.
My first question is, Sport or Strada ?
there does appear to be an s below the barrel. However it does have Strada bars, not clip ons.
Have spent two hours trying to upload pics but have now given up.

Hi, whatever it is it looks OK to me. It appears to be an electric-start bike (it's something becoming more and more desirable to 'older' owners :wink: ) and I imagine it's a later model.
Someone will be able to confirm, you could maybe get a ball park date from the frame number listings on the Dutch Morini site.

This looks like a mixture of diferent models.
The frame, side panels, mudguards and wheels seem to be from a K-model, the seat and tank obviously not

Have managed to source a better seat and a good quality tank with creative artwork from Italy for a good price. Have managed to resurrect all of the electrics, windscreen wiper motor is starting the engine well with an AGM battery. Has passed its mot today, Nova sorted so hopefully will soon be registered. Also will be starting on the cosmetics soon. Can anyone recommend a company that does dry ice/CO2 blasting in the South West UK?

Windscreen wiper motor? - Do tell / show some pics.
Looking good, cosmetics should not be too difficult.

Sorry I mean't starter motor. It just reminds me of an old car windscreen wiper motor
