mikey-shepherd A T hotmail.c o m

well i just bought it off ebay for a early birthday present and my dad and i decided to get into trials so i bought something cheap so i wouldnt be worried about breaking it , droping it or falling off

the man i bought it off didnt know much about them, so he didnt tell
me much about it.

its a Fantic, not sure what model or cc, it feels around a 200cc, its a 2 stroke.
it used to be bright orange originally but it has been sprayed black. not sure of its year or anything.

i dont know much about it so far as i only bought it 2 days ago.

i was hoping to post pictures on your forum so maybe the other forum members could perhaps tell me what model it is.

Hello all,
I am restoring a 1975/6 Fantic RC 125 TX150 enduro.
I need the following parts:
Workshop manual/owners manual
Exhaust pipe
Front and rear fenders
Front and rear lights
Tank pouch

I really need loads more parts. Any RC parts that people may have laying around may help with this project. This bike has an unusual motor. It has been tagged "Preperatsione Especial" or "Specially Tunned" at the factory and at a guess is about 180 to 200 cc. But the main bike is a RC125.

It should look like this But mine looks like this

p>So you can see my problem, its a real basket case but I think it deserves to live on..
Please help, I am willing to purchase any bits for the RC that you may have especially the bits listed above..

I have a Fantic mini-moped and I know that I have the 2-paged owners manual somewhere, but I can´t find it. My moped is in excellent condition, but I have one problem. Sometimes it is difficult to start the warm engine. It seems that the engine is running too hot or there might be some problems with the carburetor dellorto sha 14.?. I wonder if other Fantic-owners have the same kind of problems. I have a picture of the model here.

Un bonjour de France. Je suis le possesseur d'un Fantic 125 Clubman de 96 transformé en coach après l'achat d'une selle double. J'ai un problème de joint spi sur la fourche (upsidown) et désire récolter le maximum d'informations sur la partie mécanique de cette moto. Je suis intéressé par tous les documents existant sur le sujet (manuel d'atelier, livret du propriétaire...). J'aimerais aussi que tous ceux qui connaissent bien cette moto me donnent des tuyaux la concernant. Mon email : thierry.noir at

Hello from France. I am the owner of 1996 Fantic 125 Clubman modified with the purchase of a double saddle.

Un bonjour de la seine et marne en France.
Tout d'abord je dois dire que ce site est superbe. Tous les fous de Fantic, comme moi doivent passer des heures sur le net à lire en détail tous les e-mails de ce site. Dommage qu'il y est si peu de français. Je ne possède pas de Fantic malgré que ce soit ma marque préférée et de loin. Je compte bientôt créer mon site oû les Fantic prendrons une place importante. Pour l'instant je suis à la pêche à l'information, aux photos, aux docs qui pourraient compléter ce site. Tout ce qui concerne les Fantic seront les bienvenu.

Je suis à la recherche d'un 125 de 1983 couleur rouge phare carré, alors si vous êtes vendeur envoyez moi un e-mail à : ericperard at hotmail.c o m les photos, docs techniques, me ferait plaisir.
Une question, est ce qu'il y a une rencontre Fantic en France?
Bye, et encore bravo pour le site -- Eric, fou de Fantic --

Sheldon's lame translation, if I am not close please let me know:
Hello from the Seine on Marne in France. First of all I must say that this site is superb. All the other insane fans of Fantic, as me must spend the hours on the Net to reading in detail all e-mail of this site. It's a pity that there if little French. I do not have a Fantic although it is my preferred mark by far. I hope that I will soon restore one myself. For the moment I am fishing for information, photographs and documents for this site. All that relates to Fantic will be welcome. I am looking for a 1983, 125, color red, square headlight. If you have one for sale please e-mail to: ericperard at hotmail.c o m Any technical photographs or documents would also please me. Does anyone know if there is a Fantic meeting in France? Bye, and still cheer for the site -- Eric, insane of Fantic -- eric Pérard -- ericperard at hotmail.c o m

I have a pretty complete 1978 125 Caballero RC which I am currently giving a little much needed attention. I am not sure that my life requires such a potent 125 but the bike obviously was made with some attention to detail and I intend to bring it up to a presentable and working level. For the sake of convenience I would be interested to buy a side or center stand for this bike else i will have to make one and information on side panels. I know there is bound to be difficulty with these but maybe someone has made some copies.
When i bought this bike ten years ago it had had a gearbox meltdown and I managed to find a complete set of internals to rebuild it. Subsequently I found the gearing of this bike to render it unusable suggesting the internal ratios were perhaps from a trialbike .I never rode it before i repaired it so i had nothing to compare. The gearbox output sprocket is a 12 tooth and the rear wheel sprocket is a 60, if any 125 owners with the RC motor could advise me on their ratios i would be grateful. I will regear obviously but it may be tall in first and short up in sixth. Any information will be gratefully recieved. -- Rich, -- Leicestershire -- RMoss115 at aol.c o m

For the last 20 years i have been the proud owner of a Fantic Caballero 125 Enduro. Before that I had a Caballero 50cc moped. still in its original condition I am trying to get the bike back on the road after a 15 year absence.

I Believe the bike was imported when I bought it but with no log book I can't be sure of year of manufacture ( can anyone help ).

I need a gearshift oil seal and if anyone knows the gearbox oil quantity that would be great as when I fill it to the oil level plug the motor seems to run really sluggish as if it were over-filled.

Please help me, I was given my Fantic by my ex-employer, he told me it was a 350cc, however I don't know if he was right or not. it is a mono shock, the electric box between the ht lead and the kick start is made by Ducati, it has no ignition (it is a simple kick-start) it is white and orange (in its original colours). The problem is that I don't know what model it is, or even if it is a 350 there are no markings to tell apart from the Fantic motors logo, please help so that when it needs new parts , I know what model/engine size and roughly when it was produced, any help you can provide would be phenomenal.

October 10, 2000
Hi !
The 50cc air-cooled engines was much used by small national manufacturers. Here in Norway the " Tempo Tiger " of the mid 1980`s used the 4 ratio manual gear version. The " Fantic " Motorcross style moped, from about the same period, used a 6 ratio version.

The two engines are interchangeable, but the " Fantic " had the intake manifold slightly angled to the right. There are still a few of those lying around although they are getting rare on the road now.

The bottom ends looks very similar to the later " Motron " liquid cooled things.

I currently use a 1985 " Tempo " with a six speed "Fantic " slightly tuned ( Its still 50 cc! ) engine. It is the ultimate fit and forget/always start first kick/just add petrol-(mix) foolproof transport it was meant to be. Only fault, the clutch has a tendency to bind when left standing for lengthy periods ( It wants to get out every day ).

Hope this information could assist someone trying to restore some rare gems out there!

It's a while since I have written here about my Fantic. U can find couple stories about it in the bottom of this page. Nowadays it's in our summer cottage, in the eastern part of Finland, and it works ALMOST properly. There is quite a lot of new parts, but I don't need it any more, so if somebody is interested about it, throw me with e-mail...

Hi guys, I presently own a1981 Fantic rc125 enduro I have owned it from new and have had it in bits for ages. I had previously owned 2 50cc cabs one 4 speed the other 6 in their day they were the nuts. Anyhow, what I'm after is some possible info regarding parts I have either lost or must replace through wear and tear. Most important , and I see I'm not alone is some side panels, and rear shocks (Sachs air). I know the bike fairly well and would be glad to exchange any information I have. -- all the best -- Mad Ted -- Microgit at aol.c o m

We have a Fantic Motorbike/Moped built in March, 1980. We are rebuilding the engine and need to know the oil to gas mixture for the engine. We believe it is a two cycle. The nameplate on the motor is motori minarelli. We could use any ideas on how to locate an owners manual. Thank you for your help and assistance. -- garobezap at

I'm looking for lubrication maintenance information on a Fantic Pepi 25 moped. Specifically I'm trying to identify what lubricant goes into the crankcase and whether or not that oil is additionally used for oil injection into the combustion chamber. If an oil injection system is not used in this machine, what would the oil-gas mixing ratio be? -- Joseph Poradzisz -- jporadzisz at

I bought this moped used in the late 70's. Until recently, I have had little to no trouble with this bike. Here is the problem: I can't get any spark. I've tried a new plug and anything else I can think of. I have no owner's manual to refer to, so I need help.

It is a Concord Moped XKE made at Fantic Motor in Italy. The engine is a Motiri Minarelli. Any ideas or help will be greatly appreciated. Contact me at mot at forspeed.c o m

Hello there,
It seems I've doomed to live here in the land of snow and midnight sun, Finland. I've got a book, that includes a picture about Fantic motorcycle equipped for driving in the snow. The front wheel is replaced with a ski, etc. I'd like to find such a creature to buy or at least to get detailed information about the construction to create one myself.

Has anyone got information about this construction or maybe one to let go for a reasonable price ? I'd be delighted of anything considering this subject. Please surprise me by email at ladybug at .

Subject: SA: Re. Sorry

Soon after receiving your last E-mail, my system crashed and I've been off-line for over two weeks, so I'm sorry I didn't reply to your last missive on the Fantic subject. Anyway, consider me a candidate for membership of the FOG, although I can't subscribe to the list whilst my computer accessibility is limited to work. Maybe when I get my own computer at home, I'll subscribe.

Was down at Barzago (home of Fantic factory) on Saturday getting a couple of bit'n'pieces, and rode past the factory. Sad to see it closed definitavely; hope my ride to work past the Guzzi plant never follows the same theme...

All the best,

The Fantic factory is "Closed"? As in shut down, out of business, not making bikes anymore???? Oh my... What is the story?
Sheldon Aubut

I'm no expert, but it's an 'on-and-off' story. They closed down several years ago, only to re-open with a new range of trial bikes, all water-cooled singles in 50cc, 80cc, 125cc and 250cc guises (I think), using the Minarelli engines, and with new money; some kind of a co-operative, if I'm not vastly mistaken. This was about five years ago. They were really good bikes, but competition is extremely fierce here, and they went bust again. They closed definatively about three years ago, and the factory is now in disuse. It's literally falling down, which is a real shame. Someday, I'll go down on my Fantic Caballero, and get some photos as the outside of the factory is emblazoned with a massive 'Fantic Caballero' sign. 'Caballero' incidentally means 'gentleman' in Spanish.

Can give you possible best world contact for Fantic spares:

Viale Rimembranze 14,
23890 BARZAGO (LC), Italia.
Tel/Fax: - 39 031 860212

Tell them I put you (or anyone else) onto them. They are good guys, and they are like us to Guzzi, ie. main dealers in the same town as the factory, but the difference is that when the factory closed for the first time, they bought up the entire stock of spares, so it's incredible what they have.

Have to go; loads of E-mails to catch up on.
Ciao for now,

Nowadays my Fantic has a little problem: It doesn't start. I've checked everything, but it doesn't work. But when I opened magnet (or what might it be called!?) and changed the wires, it started, worked few minutes normally, and then stopped just like that, without warning... Maybe it takes ground somewhere... Well I just have to keep cool and try to fix it... Teemu Hirvonen, Finland

I don't have any photos of my own Fantic, but I found this photo from the web. My Fantic is from 1985. I paid it 800 mk( about 145 $) There is 10 inch. tyre in the back, and the forward is 12 inch. It's little higher than Honda monkey and Suzuki PV. The engine is Minarelli P4E, and the carburetor is Dellorto 14.9 SHA. The engine has quite a lot of power, and the velocity increases quite fast, and the engine's got power to burn.

The fuel tank is about 5 litres. My Fantic goes about 60 km/h because the carburetor has been drilled from 9mm to 14 mm. -- Teemu Hirvonen
