Bobs yer Uncle Garelli Super Sport XL build complete...

SO 3 or 4 months ago i got a tip that some girl Angelique had a Garelli SSXL and Eureka for sale for dirt cheap..Well i jumped on it cuz yaknow, I collect junk...well I packed up the kiddies and the ol lady and took a little ride down to Maryland. Upon arrival Angelique showed me this thing

not too shabby, slight basket case, engine seized but it had a parts bike..not to mention its comin from one of the most irie wrenchers ive met....

so i got these bike home and here is what i did

repainted in entirety

new used wheels

Sava MC10 tires for brat look

new cables

Shortened Batmin Bars

new pedals

70 cc Polini kit

Weakends exhaust

high comp head

19mm Dellorto

Maxi size EBR forks...customized fork tube

I also shaved down the seat for a cleaner look and then reupholstered

I did little custom things here and there like custom brackets, custom chain guard mod, new wheel bearings and ofcoarse a gold chain...

Here are a couple shots

youtube clip

And ofcoarse if youve seen my previous build The Egg Mcmuffin of Mopeds I always squeeze n a glamour shot...

I gotta shout out to Angelique, Dtowntech, Chad Burke, Chance Jawns, Tremelin, Rob K, Moped Lar, Moped Motion, treats, 1977,pedshow and anyone else who may have given me some sort of advice or two cents of any kind along the way.

Holy Jesus your son looks exactly what I looked like when I was his age back in 1987!!!!

Anyway...all that progress in 4 months? I'm pissed. I have spent 9 months on mine and I can't even put the fork on since I don't have a triple tree hex cap!

You rule man.

Re: Bobs yer Uncle Garelli Super Sport XL build complete...

Re: Bobs yer Uncle Garelli Super Sport XL build complete...

thanks again for all the props...

Re: Bobs yer Uncle Garelli Super Sport XL build complete...

I'd compliment this tasteful build but I don't want to swell your head.

Re: Bobs yer Uncle Garelli Super Sport XL build complete...

its all good..its not even my bike..i built it for someone else and will prob be my second to last moped build .

Re: Bobs yer Uncle Garelli Super Sport XL build complete...

and all in all when i build a bike i just go for a real clean look and maybe something that raises the bar a little if i get lucky...

Re: Bobs yer Uncle Garelli Super Sport XL build complete...

did you use stock handlebar brackets or have to get something different??If so what did you use?

I got a 78 garelli and bought the 7/8" "M style"clubman bars off treats and the stock brackets aren't long enough.

Re: Bobs yer Uncle Garelli Super Sport XL build complete...

i used the same bracket you would for a puch..i dont know if thats helpful...

Re: Bobs yer Uncle Garelli Super Sport XL build complete...

you may have to switch out that goose neck to put those mbars on there...

Re: Bobs yer Uncle Garelli Super Sport XL build complete...

thanks ill give it another look

Re: Bobs yer Uncle Garelli Super Sport XL build complete...

Re: Bobs yer Uncle Garelli Super Sport XL build complete...
