Looking for Moto Morini 3 1/2 Sport

I'm not sure if its okay to ask if anybody knows where there's a 74-76 Moto Morini 3 1/2 Sports, but I have been looking for a nice one for a few years. If anybody has an idea, let me know.

Thanks,

Gordon

Thanks very much. Shows you how poor I am at searching craigslist. I emailed the fellow. Its a 76 in 74/75 bodywork, but gorgeous regardless. He has both sets of bodywork. It is just what I want. Thanks again so much. I wish I had thought of putting this out here before.

Deuce... Would you know someone up there who could look at the bike for me? The ad doesn't sound like a scam, but I have real fears about craigslisters. A guy almost got me once and the level of sophistication amazed me. The fact that he talks about it being a 76 with both sets of bodywork gives me real comfort. That's not something the presidents and princes of Nigeria would think of.

Yep. I had a 750, a 900, and a 916 cc bike, plus a 500 single. Then I got a 500 Moto Guzzi. Then, one 450 Honda and another. Then, a 350F Honda and a couple of 160's. As I fell more and more in love with smaller displacement bikes, the Morini became the most interesting of the smaller bikes.

Morini 350...what a gem of an engine.

Did N.America ever get the Morini Dart ?

ADV-appropriate Moto Morini...http://oklahomacity.craigslist.org/mcy/5045650344.html

Not saying that there's anything wrong with the Sport. Always been curious about these, still haven't even seen one in person.

In case you want to search CL for more...Moto Morini Search

Neil... Great engine. Don't think the Dart was ever imported. I've seen one here, though.

Speedy... Do you mean the Camel? I like the 500 Sport as well, but it misses something from the 3 1/2.

cveddy... Spoke to the guy with the metallic lavender 3 1/2. Bikes in good shape other than needing some clean up and new paint. I prefer the pre-76 bikes.

Btw, I've called the seller and left a message and emailed the craigslist address, which "is delayed" whatever that means. Given how fast these go, I probably lost it...

Is that one of your BMW's next to the 3 1/2? You have 3 of the best of them. The last 2 bikes on my bucket list are a Matchless G80 and a BMW R60US. I really have visions of cruising down river road on the Delaware on an R60 on an early fall afternoon.

BTW, wrong seat on the 3 1/2...

Just bought this one for $1500. Runs very well (I made it that way), has needs cosmetically.
