A Fantic TI6 or Garelli Record would 'ave it though. Fizzies weren't that quick, they just lasted into the restricted era, where the Italian stuff returned to nature.

True, but the kiddie that knocked around with us who had an SS50 with the C70 top end used to use half the fuel we did, and went as fast if not faster.

The sheer amount of miles we used to do on those things meant the price of fuel and 2 stroke oil was an issue-it wasn't unusual for us to do 200 miles in a day on them and paying for that while at school wasn't easy.


I put an old aircooled KX125 lump into an AE50....it was unrideable

The AE80 was pretty quick and bolted straight in.

Our local filling station still had the 2stroke oil pump dispenser. We used to wheel it behind a fuel pump out of the cashiers view, whack the hose into the 2st oil tank, pump like billio 'til the tank was full, then pay for the two quids worth of petrol and a shot of oil.

The KX125 didn't....it wasn't road legal and the 'engineering' was questionable...
