So far: Sport conversion and mods What’s next: using it most days

This is my 1976 Morini 350. I bought it in 2003 as a tatty runner, and I’m currently using it almost every day to run errands.

It was an Italian ‘Strada’ model (the slightly less powerful ‘tourer’) but converted to full Sport spec when imported to the UK in the 90s. It’s had a full engine rebuild (after a disastrous gearbox failure).

It’s been repainted to resemble an early Sport, and wears a 2-1 Ricky Racer pipe which sounds awesome. It’s also got a floating front disc, Brembo four-pot caliper, and a completely unnecessar­y WP steering damper. Tacho’s away for a rebuild.
