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

Was it street-legal?

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.
