It's a Broncco TX-11 Fantichino, they were for small children, they used a small Aspera ZH 2 stroke engine that was like 60cc

Thanks! definitely one of the smaller frames Ive seen. I'd like to keep it as original as I can and leave the brake levers and handlebars. Does anyone know if this bike was manufactured in Italy? Are the Broncco and Fantic minicycles the same thing? thanks!!
