when i was sixteen my Garelli Rekord gave me my independence and freedon,
even though it was the most unreliable moped in the group of lads that i hung with,
i should of not bought the 10 speed at 15 and put that towards a decent FS1E.
if there are any sport mopeds (wih the pedals) still going, lets see some photos of them.
Yamaha FS1E, Suzuki AP, Garelli Tiger Sport & Rekord, Gilera trials, and one that i would of loved the Malaguti Super cross & Monte. but please no Honda ss 50 that was just awful.

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.
