    Does anyone have any idea about what this is??

    I used to stay at my parents friends house a long long time ago.
    I used to ride a little monkey type bike about 30 years ago.
    I picked it up today and gave it a quick wash. Need to get it running now.
    All I know is nothing.

    At least someone that knows the logo in the last pic...

    It looks like a Morini engine, they fitted those in old Italjets, American kids bikes and everything in-between

    Turns out that it’s a 70’s minibike with a 50cc Franco Morini engine. I think this one was used on the oil rigs/super tankers. They were very popular back in those days but usually had a lawnmower engine in.
    Apparently, one this old with a proper bike engine is quite valuable. (to the right person)
