Morini Cables

November 30, 2020

Morini (Motori Franco Morini) is the name of the engine. Only the lower end of the throttle and start cables are for the engine. The cables upper ends are for whatever controls that are on the handlebars. The brake cables lower ends are for whatever brakes the bike has.  The cable lengths depend on the frame and handlebars.


Morini MO1 and M1 Start Cable

The original start cable conduit stops at, and moves with the start lever, while the inner cable end is fixed to the engine. This is the opposite way most cables are attached. Usually the conduit stops on the engine and the inner wire attaches to and moves with the start lever. The cable is single ended, so it can slide out of the conduit and be replaced separately.
