Actually is was a Moriwaki 80cc. Technically he was allowed to race in that series and had purchased a bike assuming they would allow him to do so. They then ummed and arred and finally said he couldn't race. At the time nobody knew if it was some legality stopping under 16s racing or if they objected to his 1000 odd wins in short track. Vermeulen raced them in Oz when only 15. That is when they sold everything and moved to the UK. As for Puig. What he did was put in the good word so that the "privateer" Honda he raced in 2006 had some good parts. You can see Puig is a bit torn between Danny and Stoner as he is fond of both. So when giving praise of Stoner on the Honda in 2011 he always makes the point that perhaps, maybe, it would have been different with a fit Danny. Which is fair and one of those unknowns....
