Nearing the end of a full restoration on a 1975 Garelli Katia single speed. It has the same engine as the Noi so it's been awesome to use this forum to help with the build.
I've used treatlandTV who have been awesome for sourcing the upgrades for the engine. Been the same engine as the Noi it's been useful following what engine kits other people have used so engine spec goes like this:
44.5mm mallosi bore up kit
44.5mm reed valve
19mm PHBG carb
MLM people's pipe
The bike frame and suspension parts have been blasted and painted in apple jack green which is a British rover colour.
The shock absorbers are 255mm shocks off a Norton motorbike but I could be wrong, I think there more universal.
Tyres are Dunlop's 3.00-10 scootsmarts which I think make the moped look like it should, which a bit of an upgrade on the original tyres.
When I do start the bike for the first time I've got a few questions.
What's the best way to run the engine in?
What's everybody's thoughts on the single speed rubber clutch? I know there's a few threads on them including using the kickstart clutch as an upgrade, which might be the best option if the rubber clutch doesn't work. But overall how as anybody else got on with them?
Gearing, that's another thing I'm not really looking forward to.
