With early 1970’s ‘Easy Rider’ styling but with only 125cc’s of Minarelli 2-stroke power to pull it along (there was a 50cc version available too!), the now almost legendary Fantic Chopper featured steeply raked forks, a peanut tank and plenty of chrome in a valiant effort to emulate its bigger brothers. Quirky and reputedly great fun to ride (I’ve never tried – though apparently the 125cc version could reach 80 mph), the Fantic Chopper is a symbol of its time. Now very collectible, both versions are eagerly sought out by collectors and restorers alike.
This lovely example is a 125cc Chopper which the seller says has been the subject of extensive restoration work including vapour cleaning and a full engine rebuild, polished Borrani rims and rebuilt wheels with new spokes, a newly powder coated frame, pearl white metallic paint with the correct tank decals and much more.
