Some help please :)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I wondered if someone could tell me the model of my fantic that I bought the other day? Looking to restore it. Need an engine for it as it's been fitted with a Honda 4 stroke.

Mono shock

Discs front and rear

Going on the front forks and mudguard if original looks like  91 engine size depends if there is a model no anywhere

Not worth restoring that better trying to fettle what you’ve got and just make the best of that .it might ride surprisingly well with that four stroke in it

Thanks for the replies! I'll just ride it then if it's not worth the restoration. Something to chase the kids about on! Cheers!!

Think it "was" a K Roo model. Gone a bit too far down the leftfield "modification" route unfortunately. Engine gone, USD forks not popular these days & overall not a popular model with the retro boys. If it runs OK, why not tidy it up a bit & use it "as is". Not worth going down the restoration route IMHO.

It's a fantic 249 or 309 (almost last of the fantic air-cooled monos) it's not a kroo, the tank and frame were different. A shame really but was probably changed as a much cheaper fix than rebuilding the original engine. As said by others on this forum its just not cost effective to put it back to how it should be, if it runs just ride it!

Honda 4-stroke transplant is.....different.  Not internally geared for serious Trials use, but good for......something.

Yeh certainly not geared very well for the tight, intricate stuff. Might go a wee bit bigger on the rear sprocket
