Never saw one of these on the road back in the 70’s and I know I would have remembered seeing it. This is a spectacular motorcycle that was produced by Italian motorcycle company Fantic to capitalize on the 70’s chopper craze in America (and probably Italy where they must have sold thousands of these ape-hanging, sissy-barred beauties). The asking price of $7500 is about what a Triumph Bonneville from the same era would go on the block for. That’s a bit steep and might explain why this bike has shown up on eBay a number of times without finding a buyer. Still, what a fun-looking bike that you can’t help but smile when you look at.
