The larger version of the Morini didn’t work as well as the 350 but it’s a useful little bike if used mildly. Some have been converted to early 350 Sport layout and look all the better for it. Straight through pipes and modded air-filter make it rather more interesting on the open road. Engines often need a rebuild around 20,000 miles if they have been used at all hard. The odd rat one turns up cheaply, with ruined cosmetics and knocking engine.
