when i was sixteen my Garelli Rekord gave me my first taste of freedom and independence,
even though it was the most unreliable moped in our little group of lads.
Maybe i should not of bought the 10 speed Carlton the year before, and put that money towards a decent FS1E.
Are there any sport mopeds (with the pedals) still going, lets see some photos of them, any thing like, Yamaha FS1E, Suzuki AP, Garelli Tiger cross / Rekord, Gilera trials, Puch Grand Prix, KTM Comet X, I would of loved to have owned a Malaguti Super cross or Monte, my least favourite would of been the Honda ss 50.

Not exactly mint wink but all original - have owned it since about 1977, was at school with the original owner - might get round to restoring when I retire smile

My old man has just had a full restoration finished on his FS1E. The thing is absolutely a thing of beauty - better than new I recon.

Must get some pics when I next head over there.
