1960 Moto Morini 175cc Tresette Sprint
Registration no. FAS 861
Frame no. 43044
Engine no. TS41939
Introduced for the 1954 model year, the 175cc Moto Morini Settebello (Seven of Diamonds) was a high-performance sports roadster that commenced a run of models named after card games. Although intended for production-class racing, the Settebello was sold with full road equipment and could be distinguished from Morini's other 175s by its larger cylinder head containing hairpin valve springs (all the rest used coils). Following the budget-priced Biscola (trumps) the last of the card game-themed 175s was the Tresette (Three Sevens) which was newly introduced for 1958 together with the sporting Tresette Sprint. There was also an out-and-out racer, the twin-overhead-camshaft Rebello, which was one of the most advanced designs available when introduced in 1955. This restored Moto Morini Tresette Sprint was first registered in the UK in May 2002 and has belonged to the current vendor since November 2013. We are advised that the compression has been lowered for road use, and that the machine has been upgraded with a Powerdynamo 12-volt ignition and MMB electronic rev counter. Last run in December 2019, the machine is described by the private vendor as in excellent condition throughout and would make a superb acquisition for any collection and an ideal mount for the Moto Giro d'Italia. Accompanying documentation consists of restoration notes and bills; some expired MoTs; a V5C Registration Certificate; and photocopy instruction manual and parts book.
