Derbi Variant Race Relic...

midnight gold ( rodney) — Dec 02, 2013 09:51PM

one of my favorite bikes ever acquired.

just got this along with jack, who got the black SLE. it was sold to me by the brother of the late builder of the bike and i now possess a thick packet of documents, blueprints, and diagrams that went into its creation. the amount of work that went into this bike is at the very least amazing and extremely meticulous, and all done WAY before any of the parts retailers and vast amount of information that is available today. it has vintage performance parts ranging from a mofast pipe and piston (which i realized you would have to send your cylinder to get bored to the 60cc piston from reading the included receipts), to custom bodywork, wiring, switches, and a launch lever (designed ahead of it's time) to name a few. it is a glimpse into the first generation of moped tuning, for me having missed that generation, and tons of history that shows what one had to do to modify a bike in the 80's. although i already had an appreciation for people building bikes before my time, this is a true affirmation of the fact that there were and are great undiscovered moped builders out there in the world.

just got it running for the first time tonight. it is tuned amazingly, after all these years, with only a simple carb clean. ive built and ridden many derbi bikes from stock/kitted flat/pyramid/piston port engines, and i would rank this VERY highly amongst anything ive ridden. smooth. as fast as it looks. body and engine, executed exceptionally, and i will now ride and preserve it. complete with original registration and blue plate. a great influence to my own bulding as well...
