Morini Camel pre 501

Here I am again to post some more pictures on these bikes. The next post will start covering the 501 and my project - a special 501



I am not sure what happened to this front end- check the rake!!!. An early attempt to make a chopper out of a fine Valentini? let me vomit..




Another early rally bike.




This is the last post on pre 501 camels. Next my new project a modified 501...Defintely a more modern bike with a slightly better engine and a monoshock suspension system.

Morinis are famous for the spaghetti wiring- the electrics is a mess- especially this is true for the Camels which have a dual electric system; 12 volts to the head light and 6 volts to the rest of the bike. It is unusual considering that street morini models have all a 12 volts.
