16mm carb manifold

when the Amal carb is mounted to the stock cylinder, does it use the same manifold as the original (i think its a 12mm) or does it pop out the side like ive seen it mounted on big bore kits? do they even make a manifold that fits the A3 (non reed valve) cylinder?

i was talking 2 my wood shop teacher, and he said, back in the day (late 70s) he bought his son a Motobecane Mobylette and mounted a larger front sprocket on it. a cop friend called a few days later saying he had clocked the mans son doing 65mph on that bike!

That was probably the same cop that clocked that tree at 50mph,wasn't it Garret?Some wood's faster than others you know!By the way,I've always been able to tell a dogwood tree by it's BARK!And you can tell a locust tree by its chirp.(:^)

Yes, a Moby can do 60+ mph. I lived in Bermuda back in the '70s. With a 13 sprocket in front, 36 in the back, shaved head, bored intake and outtake, bigger manifold and carburetor, it is possible - but no power.
