I myself picked up on the Fantic Cabellero which was in fact a legal learner bike in UK 1978 for a 16 year old
Even then I was propelled to always own Italian and have done since then (apart from Triumphs), the looks back then compared to a yamaha fizzy/SuzukiAP 50/HondaSS50.....
Haha my 2 cents
I'll top trump you nigel albeit from Google.
Think we should start up a section of members previous bikes, I'll be rushing up to the loft hell I even upgraded from the cab to a gt (what a stunning looking bike for 1978 ?)
