Check out the cross bar on the handlebars, you can barely see it

It's a 60 cc version of the Corsarino Scrambler, renamed by the US importer. The regular Corsarino was called the "Pirate".  I worked on a 250 "Tornado" (Settebello) that had the same handlebars.

I'd love to have it.  :bike-037:

Those are swan neck clip-ons bars, which makes the cross bar even more cool...

I had a Corsarino. Cute-didn't get to ride it far before it stopped and ran no more

I don't think that any gas-powered street bike in normal use can get that, although record-breakers on tracks have done amazing things with 175 Hondas and such.

I don't think that any street bike, 50cc or whatever, can top 100 MPG on a regular basis, out where you have to pin it to accelerate with traffic from city stoplights, climb hills, idle at stops, etc.

I know the guy selling it, he lives in my town. Been over there a few times looking at obscure bikes he has for sale. One of those guys who has a bazillion bikes stuffed into an under-house garage area, with a yard sprinkled with cars, trucks, trailers, rec vehicles, scooters, snowmobiles, etc, in states of half-repair. He's smart, knows what he has, and knows how to turn a wrench, but has no time to attend to it all. I envy his hoard, and wish I had time to snoop thru it all every time I stop by.

The guy works for the City of Bridgeport...at a Utility, I think...and routinely gets into residential basements and garages.
