Found in a barn where it had been for decades – found 1970s newspapers in the panniers! Got it running and intended to sell it, but left it at a mate’s house and it got covered with other stuff and I haven’t seen it since….

No suspension, bicycle brakes... basic to say the least

At a Glance
+ GOOD POINTS
Cheap and cheerful, reliable engine

- BAD POINTS
Slow even by moped standards. Brakes useless though, so that's probably just as well...
