A stunning Italian Fantic GT 4 TX200 Gran Turismo Moped.
Fantic Motor was created in Barzago near Milan by Henry Keppel and Mario Agrati circa 1968. The aim was to produce fun bikes for the USA market, they produced a successful range of mini bikes, including trikes and choppers before they set about building their first motorcycle in 1971. Described by Motorcycle Mechanics Magazine in 1977 as the closest a moped will ever get to a real motorcycle, the Fantic GT was faster than other Fantic models of the time also being more smooth and comfortable. It GT was found to be reliable and easy to start with the controls positive and responsive.
Stainless steel front and rear mudguards, rubber front mudguard extender, chrome rear view mirrors, Ceriani rear shock absorbers, CEV headlamp and speedometer, rear tail light with reflector, rear luggage rack, electromagnetic horn, engine cut-out button, fuel valve, original Fantic motor embossed seat, chrome exhaust.
Finished to a very high standard the light and sturdy tubular steel frame has been powder coated silver with the fuel tank being repainted to a show quality red finish. Pristine decals on the tank and frame are on display with bright chrome work make this sporty moped a sight to be seen. The original seat with the Fantic Motor embossed logo is in excellent condition and the correct CEV electrical components inc headlamp, switch and speedo all remain fitted. Finished off with a chrome exhaust this is simply a stunning example.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Fantic motor Minarelli two-stroke 49cc air cooled engine is quoted to produced 7.2 bhp @8000rpm and capable of speeds up to 60.5mph making this no normal moped. All components are fully detailed to show standard and the original Dell’Orto carburettor remains fitted. The bike has a four speed foot change transmission with a chain drive.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original Italian made spoked wheels are in good condition just showing minor marks to the chrome finish surrounded with near new quality 2.75-18 tyres. Drum brakes front and rear provide adequate braking of this sporty Moped.
Bought new for a sum equivalent to £325 in April 1977 by the first owner. This fantastic moped started life in the warm climates of Italy where is was used for the first few years of its life before being laid up in a barn. The second and current owner discovered this bike whist on holiday in Italy brought the bike into the uk. On its return to the uk it under went some light restoration and recommissioning before being used as a display bike in a private collection. A history file with the bike contains an independent report by the Old Italian Bike Register where it was described as being in excellent condition and being 100% correct as it left the factory! With the report is an official dating and confirmation of authenticity certificate.
This impeccable collectors bike has only now being made available by the downsizing of the current owner’s world class moped collection.
