Which one to have..

Recommended Posts

A year or back I let my Fantic go and now thinking of another Post 80 bike to take its place, the logical option would be another FANTIC but I do fancy something different, a Montesa. I don't  know too much about them what could people who do tell me about the 242, or the 330. I have read the kickstart is a little fragile, but are these realistic competitors to the Fantic, it wll be ridden on a middle route in trials so not easy but not stupidly hard also. Thanks

I have a 1979 SWM that I have ridden most of the time over the last couple of years.  Its a good shout, just fancied something a little different.

Go for the 242 its a fantastic bike. Its properly geared, light and agile easy to work on and most parts are available, cheap as not popular, only one weak spot is kickstart gears.

ps I do hate montesa.

Thanks for the input. Scanning the various sites, seem a nice selection in Spain.  And finally the difference between the red tank and seat and the cream is it purely age related. The red looks better in my opinion, thanks again.
