From 1968, the Italian company Fantic Motor has produced ‘enduro’ motorcycles, mopeds, mini motorcycles and go-karts. The motorcycles first arrived on Britain’s shores in the early Seventies when the UK law preventing sixteen years olds from riding anything over 250cc came into force. It was during the 1980s that Fantic found competition success here, with notable wins in Scotland and Trials World Championships. With spare parts seemingly simple to obtain, these fun, sporting machines are an affordable access to the world of off-road competition.

This 250cc K-Roo has been in the current ownership for several years and has indeed been enjoyed at fun, off-roading and club trials. We are informed that the machine has not been seriously used for a while, so will therefore require recommissioning.
