Fantic Trials Bikes

The Fantic company really started making a name for themselves in trials in the mid '80s when French star Thierry Michaud picked up a couple of world trials championships for them. Our University club had Fantics for a number of years, first a 156cc, later a 240cc Fantic started the revolution in trials bikes, when they initiated considerably lower weight with their smaller engines. At the time the leading Bultaco and Montesa bikes had typically 350cc, and longer frame geometry. I really loved the Fantic! The GasGas company started taking over when they contracted magician Jordy Tarres. Interesting to see that in the trials world the riders have so much influence on development and success of the bikes!

Clutch master cylinder
Fantic Section 250?
Hi I bought this bike for my 14 yr old son, paid £900, it's been completely rebuilt and goes really well apart from the clutch.
I suspect it's the master cylinder as I can hear air ingress at the cylinder when I pull and release the lever clutch lever. What's likely to be wrong with it?
Where can I get a repair kit?
We live in the Scottish Highlands.

Hi my name is mark and I'm from the UK. I have just bought a Fantic 305 250cc 2 stroke trials bike. It is a good runner but as the engine gets hotter it starts to knock on the top end. I think that it needs a top end bearing and it could do with a piston kit. The bike is also for sale if anybody is interested write to me on markdavis1983 at hotmail.c o m

Hello, my name is Terry and I have just acquired a Fantic Trials Bike.  I am not sure of the year of manufacture. It is a 125 Trials Tip Type. I don't know if you have heard of it. My question is that it needs new brake shoes and a new clutch and I wondered if you know of a dealer near the south coast or any that might be in England where I could purchase the said items? Many Thanks -- Terry Gregory --  gregorys at

Hello, I own a Fantic trial 50cc (opened to 80cc) with six gear-drive; I don't know the year it was manufactured; maybe the Framenumber 0001385 Fantic 330 DGM 19132 OM and the motor number 0010238 helps to identify the year of producing it. I need all information you can get me about this bike or addresses where I can get parts for it (exhaust, cylinder etc.) thanks for help.

Hello, could you help with a starting problem? The bike is a 250cc Trials 250cc TYPE 403 with electric ignition. The bike will not fire up. I have tried everything, even Easy Start. All I get is a back-fire thru the exhaust. It seems like the timing is out. It has electronic ignition, I think behind the flywheel. What problems can occur with this? I have not looked inside yet. Any info or advise would be appreciated.

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.

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  .

I have inherited a Fantic trials bike - I know as much about motor bikes as the average car driver! I think the model is called a "section". It was in use a few weeks before it came into my possession. But now I cannot get it to start nor does the clutch seem to operate!

Anyone know where I could get useful information - an owner's manual would be the real thing, but anything would be better than stumbling around in my garage bashing my shins on the starting pedal etc.

I own a Fantic 303 240cc 1987 model I think it's white yellow and blue, gas monoshock, front rear disk brakes. I have had this bike for about ten week I paid £750 this to much ?

It seemed perfect till last week when it took about 15 to 20 kicks to get it started once started and warm starts first kick every time no problem . The next day and every day when cold back to the 15 kicks before starting.....  also say for instance climbing hill 3 gear... let revs of to nearly tick over it wont set of again it stalls, but if you get past the bottom revs it flies. Possible carb settings or points I think wondered if you new any of the settings or if you no what might be my problem as there are no bike dealers wear I live?

Howdy Fellow Fantic Riders, I have just finished an enjoyable observed trials season here in South Australia on my (new to me) 1995 Fantic Section. Its now time to do some off season maintenance and therefore I need to track down a reliable parts supplier. Do you deal in parts for this vintage of Fantic, or do you know of any one who does, what about in Australia? Would you have a price list?
The type of parts I'm after at present include front fork seals and dust covers, rear brake slave cylinder seals and dust cover, engine side covers, and decal / stickers.
Any information would be most appreciated.
Regards Rob Murphy murphy.rob at
