When I was 16 living in England back in 1975 all the local kids had new mopeds like Yamaha FS1Es and Honda 50s. My best friend’s Dad used to work abroad for Penthouse magazine and bought my mate a brand new Garelli 50 moped . He used to let me ride it and all the other lads were really p*!*!! off because the Garelli was quicker and really had great street cred at the time…. I have just found a similar Garelli moped and will restore it…where can I get parts these days ?

I’m something of a Garelli sports moped fan. I have restored two Tigers and two Rekords and am presently working on a KL100. All of these were manufactured in the early seventies.
I have quite a few contacts for spares and bikes. Contact me if you need any info. United Kingdom only I’m afraid.
If you have a Garelli for sale drop me a line, I might be interested or know of someone who is. Also if you want details of how to join the UK based Sports Moped Owners Club – dedicated to 1970s sports mopeds- call my friend Chris on: s.m.o.c. at breathemail.net
