it's a 301 1985 1° serie

here some info: https://www.fanticmotor.asso.fr/r10q.htm

in my opinion a nice bike, some problems with the rear linkage, and the front brake too poor

about spare parts, i can suggest you many place here in Italy but i think you can find many parts also in Uk

I had one new back then,as above front brake weak by modern standards but far better than a drum brake.Linkage had bushes,not bearings which didn't last long.Good motor,steered well,air box let in too much dirt.Was soon outdated by the Beta tr34 and the modified mono shock Yamaha in my opinion
