Description

Founded by Alfonso Morini in Bologna in 1937, post war Fabbrica Italiana Motocicli Morini produced a range of lightweight 2-stroke bikes. Morini’s single-cylinder 4-stroke models achieved racing success from the late 1940s through to the early 1960s, and the great Giacomo Agostini began his racing career on a Morini in 1961, becoming Italian Cadet Champion in ’62 and Junior Champion in ‘63. Riding a Morini 250GP, Tarquinio Provini won the Italian Championship in 1961 and ’62, and finished a very close second to Jim Redman’s Honda in the 1963 250 World Championship.

Moto Morini’s first 72° v-twin models – the 344cc Sport and Strada – were launched in 1971. The Morini 3½ proved popular with enthusiast riders despite being not far off the price of a Honda CB750 when new. The 3½ Sport made 40bhp, could exceed 90mph and handled very well. Reliability was good too, with engines usually reaching 70,000 miles before needing an overhaul, although regular maintenance was a must.

This Morini Sport 3½ Sport is finished in red, equipped with a rare Stucchi fairing and it is in unrestored condition. It is to be sold on a Coys bill of sale.
