You may have stumped everyone as no-one has replied!  I haven't got a clue what it is but it looks like a fun bike.

I would have zoomed in on the photo but didn't know how to do this.  Cheers.  Bruce.

Well the tank has an MZ look, the engine looks Italian, but I'd go for something Russian.

Is it a Simpson 50cc Trail bike?

Ah - you've caught the Italian Bug. That is a Minarelli - possibly a rebadged Franco Morini motor. There are any number of little Italian (and French) bikes using similar motors. That is very pretty though.

You'll be after a Moto Morini Corsarino next...

Not just Italian and French I have 2 BSA Juniors (NVT Ranger) with Franco Morini engines for grandsons. I think there were some larger trail bikes from BSA/NVT with Morini engines made in the 70s.

Here's a different Moto Morini, then. Apt for this forum, as it is a 2 stroke and like hens teeth. - A Moto Morini 125T (not mine).
