    1968 Frabco Morini Mini Bike
    100cc unknown
    In 1968, I bought a mini bike with a Franco-Morini 100cc motor The Normal bikes in the US came with a 50cc, but my father special ordered 2 bikes from Italy. They had long silver gas tanks, high hanDle bars long seat and lights/speedo. Any pictures or info on this bike? I think we had THE ONLY 2 in the USA

    Franco Morini FM 128
    I have a new in the box, FM128 purchased from Herdan in the USA. For sale, best offer. I'm located in the USA, Chicago, IL.

    Thank you very much,

    I don't have any pictures, the FM-128 is new in the box. I thought about getting some pics, but figured people interested would know exactly what it was. Bought it for my nephew, but the family decided he wasn't skilled enough to race around w/ it on a mountain bike. It's sat around in the box in my den for a few years, so I decided to offer it up to the community. I paid $495 new, but would take anything over $300.

    Mine is brand new, same as pic, no blue sticker on the side.

    Thnks again for the tips and response,

    My little brother bought a Morini Franco dirt bike, and that thing is nothing but trouble. The sproket is held on my four little bolts, and they just broke off. It's not organized. It's a royal piece of trash. --  skateonthedeck at hotmaildot com

    I have a 1981 Pacer Super Sport moped. Someone gave it to me brand new and I hardly use it. It has only 69 (sixty nine) original miles. I always kept it inside and it is in mint condition. Could you advise how much this bike could be worth in today's market? I know it was imported from Italy but don't know if the manufacturer was Morini-Franco. Your advise will be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much. -- Jose Silveira -- josesilv at us.ibmdot com

    Franco Morini is a relative (cousin I think) of Alfonso Morini who made the wonderful bikes under his own name. I don't know of anyone who does spares, but you could try the factory itself:

    Morini Franco Motori
    Via Porrettana 377
    40033 Casalecchio di Reno
    Bologna Italy
    Tel: (051)57 1257
    Fax: (051)577048

    Franco Morini makes small capacity two strokes for use in scooters and small mopeds. They have just produced a 125cc air cooled four stroke single, single overhead cam, two valves, six speeds. May be used by Piaggio and Gilera.
