1978 Moto Morini 3.5 Strada

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I bought this in 1991 to restore for my girlfriend (now wife) Carole. It was an ex demo for the Italian Centre in Wandsworth, and had been sold to a Doctor, who died shortly afterwards. It then sat in a shed for years before Morini Guru Benji Straw offered to sell it for his widow. I bought it with 8011 miles on the clock and the original air in the tyres. Completely stripped it, powder coated frame and wheels, rebuilt engine (main bearing had gone) and had the bodywork painted by Andi Beazely of Splat Design, who used to paint my helmets back then. It looked gorgeous, but sadly Carole didn’t get on with the kick start, and it was too posh really, so it was sold before it deteriorated. Pretty thing though.

The Morini roams the Fens at night, searching for prey....
