Some dreams and memories are best left as memories.
I have about 30 mopeds I have to work my way through before I would even think about restoring a Morris. I paid $25 for Morris in 1963. If I remember correctly it had a 12-volt battery. The battery was as big as the engine and It had an electric fuel pump and a manual choke. That puppy would start first kick in any kind of weather. I lived in Illinois then and some winters it would get way below zero. The old Morris would start right off and then I would go around the neighborhood jump-starting all the new Cadillacs and Buicks that wouldn't start.
The Morris had a hole in the floor, on the passenger side, the size of a basketball. The hole was covered by a piece of plywood. You could zip along the highway, kick the plywood aside and see the highway flashing by under your feet.
That car had character and a sense of adventure. Of course I was much younger then and also had a sense of adventure, I guess that is why I like working on old mopeds, still a challenge, but too racy for a senior citizen.
