Newbie here, quick question, just bought a 1967 deluxe version planning on popping a new mobeycane av7 engine into the old Raleigh rm6 but would like to know if anyone has fitted a different carb than the gurtner version?
Nice RM 6 . I used to have the same bike .

Very cool bike! Nice score.
Superb chaps thank you for the link, so my only other question will the av7 with top mounting fit this frame? Ive got a full workshop to fabricate things so no probs in modifying, just wondering about the electronic ignition side, whether it will work as a straight bolt in as here https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Block-engine-AV7-full-air-New-scooter-cyclo-Motobecane-moped-mob/202612616602?epid=8011251792&hash=item2f2ca72d9a:g:GtAAAOSwoW1ceUlU:rk:3:pf:1&frcectupt=true

The engine mounts on the cylinder head will not work on the Raleigh frame , they're meant for mounting on Motobecane 50 style frames . You can just use the cylinder head from the old engine in place of the cylinder head from the eBay engine for ease of installation .
I'm not sure about the electronic ignition system on the eBay engine .
Have you considered rebuilding the original engine ? It's pretty easy . (edited)
keep it og please
Many thanks, good idea, was hoping to try and run a slightly different set up as want to rebuild the original engine/head to put back in at a later date ,How about this type?? Electrics will be the usual work it out as I go then....
That one also has the top engine mount cast into the cylinder head so it won't work unless you swap the head from the old engine onto it .
you should call these people ,
They're the Raleigh experts
