Sure was fun. Don't know how we survived!

Snorting brown pcp off the pavement in the glow of headlights then racing. Fun! or something..

Yes it was. the salesman rode it from hannum's HD in Lima PA up 352 a mile or so to a parking lot where he showed my Dad how to ride it, and delivered it to him. From there it came home in a truck.
I was only 12 so it was not street legal to me, but as soon as it was in the neighborhood I took off down the street.
All my buddies owned Honda 50's and that little 65cc 2 stroke used to eat them little 4 strokes for lunch
but that didn't last long, within a year my best friend ended up with a Hodaka Dirt Squirt.

Moto Morini 65cc minibke 2 stroke

Half the cylinder was shrouded - I guess air was directed from vanes on the flywheel

Left handgrip turned to shift. It was a four-speed. It was 1968.

Went in halfs with best friend, I think we paid $50.
