Oscar Super Sport 1968

Oscar Motorcycles

Oscar began production in the mid-1960s in Rastignano, Bologna, producing a range of lightweights. The best-known of these was the Oscar College.

The College was a single-speed model equipped with a 49cc Franco Morini engine. This was followed by the Mister College which was fitted with a 4-speed FM 4M engine.

The "Export" version had a 19 mm Dell'Orto carburettor and was much more powerful, developing around 4.5 h.p. at 5,000 rpm. The Mister College is considered the first "tuboni" type moped offered on the market. In the early 70s hydraulic rear suspension was introduced to the mopeds, previously rigid-framed.

The firm began delivering more sporty machines around 1967 with the Model F84, which had clip-on handlebars and a racing-style saddle. These were followed by the Fennec Cross and Can-Am mini-bike in 1974 and the College Trial in 1977.

In 1975 the machines received new front suspension and a new Franco Morini engine with "Turbo" cylinder head.

A 110cc two-stroke was introduced which used the same chassis with an enlarged fuel tank. It did not take the world by storm.

Oscar ceased production in the early 1980s.

Mister College
Sono proprietario di un Mister College 48 cc. del 1968. E' una moto che era molto diffusa a Bologna negli anni '70. Il motore è un Morini Franco . C'è qualcuno che conosce questo motorino e che ha pezzi di ricambio?
