Thank you guys! It's still growing! I am from Lisboa Portugal! Anyone from Portugal here ?
I believe I have a leak... crack oil is getting mixed with petrol! Going to open it again!
Sorry to hear that.

Is it smoking a lot of burned crankcase oil by the exhaust?

I don't see any footrests for the passenger
The footrest for the passenger was an accessory, not something original from factory.

Thank you Lars!!!

I agree with you that the early Formichino looks really nice and cleaner that later model.

The owner I am sure will be very pleased with this one.

Day 05: The Formichino IS FINISHED !!!! Unfortunately the body of the scooter has some holes in places that it shouldn't, Rudolf got the scooter already painted from the owner to finish it, so fixing those holes in that moment was not possible anymore. Even do, the final result is fantastic, it has...

Re: New member from Italy

As far as I know that is not possible.

Re: Project restoration Formichino

Even using 4th gear technique for the assembly, sometimes I had to do twice in the same bike to get it right. Maybe is just a matter of try again, maybe the next time works better. It is important that after removing the cover, you check with a pressure plier that all gears engage nicely (including ...
