How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

So I just bought a General off my buddy here in New Orleans. I've literally never posted a braggy picture of a bike on MA but I'm pretty stoked on this one. 74cc polini kit, ev turbo pipe, and a Minarelli V2.

Which begs the question, I know V2s are rare, but exactly how rare? We could think of two others off the top of our heads (HNRZ Tony and Chad Burke if I'm correct).

so far this thing has been a blast to ride around on...

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

Freddie has a bunch of v2 and c2s. Anyone who didnt import them themselves it came from Fred at some point

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

^incorrect.. i have found a couple c2 around where i live but never found v2's ever.

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

My Testi GP has a V2.

Edit: Chip got here while I was typing my response :)

there's C2 and V2 bikes that came through a New Jersey distributor, mostly in the 82-84 timeframe. Rob Kain has had his hands on quite a few, not sure how many he has now. Assuming Ed's C2 finds likely came from the same source originally.

As far as other V2s go... Tri-Ped Dave had/has a NOS Testi Cricket with a V2. Chip from Sarasota has a prototype "1 of 2" Testi top tank with a V2 (IIRC, possibly a C2). Daniel from Metal Ponies had/has a V2.

That is a rad ride.

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

One of the Wingnuts here in San Diego (unless he sold it) has a V2.

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

I've got a v2, with a Brn 51 mm kit, 21 dell, and a blaster pipe. Haven't finished the bike yet but, yeah, they're rad. I'm putting mine on a general 5 star top tank.

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

Chip, that is a nice machine you have there.

I am also in the v2 club...bought this with a Motron frame. Eventually I will rebuild it and post the finished product, just too many projects...

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

Steve is correct..

I have 3 or 4 V2's (one in the pic, one on a bike, one in a box.. and another?).. some C2's (one with swingarm and one in plastic there).. M101's as well (2 there.. with 2 more on bikes) and one vertical one as well...and the V1L

Been collecting for awhile.. now beginning to build the bikes around them.. I've been negligent letting them sit this long.. I got distracted by a V1 gila project... back on course soon

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

I'm unfamiliar with V1/V2, what is the difference?

Dirty Danny just got one from a Chupacabra(?), so now there is one in Los Angeles.

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

Ahh that was Wingnut Nate's, I bet. It's the Motron with the snowflakes, right?

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

Anybody have any pics of a C2?

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

Who wants to nerd out with me? I'm having starter clutch issues with my v2. I think it's tensioning but I'm trying to find the diameter of the bolt that goes into the starter clutch plate

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

Which one, the one that holds the leaf?

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

here is my safari c2 coming along

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

Disregard previous question; determined that the bolt does not in fact thread into the plate at all. The more you know...

Re: How many Minarelli V2s in moped army?

You've inspired me to yank out a C2 and ride it with friends today.
