So, after some years of pestering by Heath, and two trips to the off road show at Telford, I gave in. I was looking for a late Bultaco when this Fantic came along:-
It was too good a deal to miss and yesterday a very nice man delivered it to Heaths place near Weston Super Mare.
It is an early 80s Fantic 200, in fact a 156cc 2-stroke Minarelli engine. It was THE bike to have back in the day.
Needs a bit of fettling, and the tyres changing, but its good to go. First job was to put the footrests back to where they should be. Road pegs :-
Returned to their rightful place:-
Looking forward to getting out on it. Bug thanks to Lee and Heath.
