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.

[francobicycle.gif]
Mine is brand new, same as pic, no blue sticker on the side.

Thnks again for the tips and response,
Phil

that lem, is actually called a morini franco lx-2. it is an italian bike made by the former moto morini company. any suggestions, references or technical advice is welcome. bike is in good shape and runs good........except in needs a new plug about every 3 hours. plug is burning perfect.  i thought somebody else might have the same problem and came up with a cheap, easy fix.

Hi,
I just bought a 1977 Morini Franco Motori Model "Pratikal." I'd like to know some more about this scoot, but I have no clue of where to start.  If anyone has any information about it please email me at suthida at u.washington.edu --  Thanks,  --  Lisa

Dear Sirs,
I am looking of a German importer of "three wheels fun cars" from the Franco Morini Motori. I thank you for an address. -- Roland.Angermueller at t-online.de

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.
