The 1950's Motobi 125(?) on UK ebay right now is a very good buy, if its not a pile of junk. Lovely tapered swingarm, alloy barrel, SSI carb. It's got some good features.

And now sold again! Seller mentioned clutch "problem" - they stick when sitting unused, free up with a bit of running or remove plates and clean and oil. Seller mentioned "stanchions rust". They all are, who cares, they are out of sight. The 125s are quite fast and reliable and unlike MV Agusta, parts are available with less strenuous hunting. Someone in the UK may have gotten a bargain.
