upon a time…
the engine fitter Carl Åge lived in Saudi Arabia – Well, it was in
1987 so it wasn't that fantastically long ago - He then saw an advert
in a danish paper: The danish Morini importer, Vagn Stevnhoved, had a
3½ Sport for sale!
Carl Åge had some years before seen two girls riding their Morinis and
ever since he had been dreaming of having one himself. He therefore
immediately contacted Vagn.
The Morini was bought unseen as to be delivered the next time he visied
In 1990 he moved permanently back to Denmark und the following six
years he rode the Morini as often as possible. Sadly his back started
to complain about the riding position. He was no longer able to ride
it, and the Morini was stored in his cellar.
Until that Carl Åge had taken very good care of the Morini. Exactly
like an engine fitter would be expected to do.
Fourteen years went by and on a day in January in the year 2009 Søren,
another engine fitter, had an accident that took the life of his
The terrible news was heard by Carl Åge and immediately he offered his
Morini to the despaired.
Søren therefore set out to Hamlets hometown to bring it back
home. In Elsinore Søren was told the story of Carl Åges Morini. After
this pleasant hour the journey went back to Funen with the Morini on
Once the Morini arrived its new home, all good things were done to
awaken it again. It was obvious that the bike had been well cared for
long sleep: Only a small amount of tenderness and lubrification was
necessary to have it roaring once again, just like a Morini should.
So it came about that Søren again could celebrate being the proud
of one of the worlds loveliest vehicles .
