That's the Morini 3½ (!) STRADA model as sold in the UK. My father had one, reckoned it was a great little bike. Swapped it for a BSA A65, however.

The Sport of that vintage had clip-on handlebars and a double-sided SLS drum brake, the Strada has a single TLS brake and touring handlebars.

I see that even the Californian climate wasn't enough to stop those Radelli wheel rims rusting!
