Found a dead unicorn in the woods

I bought this Baretta Mini City the other day for $30 from a fella in the woods. I tried finding info on it but, I guess there is only 1 known other of this model, which got top tanked and dubbed "The Mini Gun.....can anyone confirm that was the only known one???

The tank is beyond repair and the Morini is possibly a paperweight, I haven't dug into it yet.

Take the wheels, forks and swingarm and slap it on your favorite Italian.

Oof. That’s rough. Do what Daniel said.

Re: Found a dead unicorn in the woods

I bought it to use the frame for a franken build, not realizing it was a mini moped. The wheels are cool but not sure if the front one is good. it is most definitely ROUGH

Re: Found a dead unicorn in the woods

Nice score, love the wheels.

That tank looks like a standard tank several italian bikes used... look up Cimatti.

Id rat build that bike. Its odd but common enough to find most parts for.

Re: Found a dead unicorn in the woods

I'm familiar with Cimatti's. Shanks built and raffled off this sick city bike last year at our rally. I was just wondering if there really aren't any of these particular Baretta models out there or if anyone else is holding one in the depths of their dungeons, just curious.

It is 100% not the only one.

Re: Found a dead unicorn in the woods

If I had that, I'd restore it. Weld it, patch it, or replace it. I've seen those wheels on eBay Italy. Probably find other parts there as well. That'd be a fun project.

Re: Found a dead unicorn in the woods

There are a few of those around, rare but no unicorn. Throw a kitted M02 on it!

Re: Found a dead unicorn in the woods

Fantic used the same wheels and many other interchangeable parts.
